Metsä Board paperboards hold industrial compostability certifications
SWEDEN (News release) -- Metsä Board, a leading European producer of premium lightweight paperboards and part of Metsä Group, is very pleased to announce that its paperboards have now achieved DIN CERTCO certificates in industrial compostability complying with DIN EN 13432 and ASTM D6400 standards. In addition, Metsä Board's eco-barrier paperboard MetsäBoard Prime FBB EB also holds a home compostability certificate. As one of the leading companies, Metsä Board provides certification across its product line helping customers choose packaging materials that comply with their requirements.

"In order to enhance circular economy our main target is that our paperboards are recycled after use. But recycling is not always possible - the paperboard may be contaminated due to its contents and cannot be recycled. In this instance compostability is the next best alternative," says Helena Moring-Vepsäläinen, Product Safety Manager at Metsä Board.

DIN EN 13432 standard refers to 'Requirements for Packaging Recoverable through Composting and Biodegradation'. ASTM D 6400 certification covers the 'Standard Specification for Labelling of Plastics Designed to be Aerobically Composted in Municipal or Industrial Facilities. The certified paperboards include all Metsä Board grades without a PE coating.

Metsä Board's paperboards, folding boxboards and white kraftliners, are all made of pure fresh fibres sourced from sustainably managed Northern European forests. They are safe for direct food contact and free from fluorochemicals. Metsä Board paperboards are lightweight and strong, contributing to a reduction of the carbon footprint throughout the whole chain.
