Coloring compostable packaging

Conscious is colorful: We prove it with pigments for compostable plastics and inks

Consumers show increasing awareness for the goods they buy, the ingredients these goods are made of as well as their packaging materials. As brand owners take responsibility for the complete life cycle of their products, industrial composting is a sustainable solution.

Our recommended pigment selection for compostable plastics and printing is based on the evaluation of the pigment composition according to the requirements of EN 13432.
