PolyOne: Key Certification for Eco-Friendly Colorants and Additives
PolyOne Corporation, Cleveland, OH, USA, announced that its OnColor Bio and OnCap Bio masterbatches have been granted OK Compost certification by AIB Vinçotte, Vilvoorde (Brussels), Belgium, marking the first time this has been awarded to a full range of colorants and additives.
AIB Vinçotte, an independent inspection organization, grants OK Compost certification after verifying that a product meets EN 13432, a standard for compostability recognized in Europe, Asia and North America. Products meeting this standard are authorized to use the OK Compost label, which guarantees the item is biodegradable in an industrial composting plant. To qualify for this label, manufacturers must demonstrate that all components of a product or package, including inks, pigments and additives, meet EN 13432.
