Mondi has announced the compostable certification of its entire range of kraft papers for packaging, giving each product a ‘viable end-of-life option’.

The company said the certification – under NF T51-800:2015 (home compostable) and EN 13432 (industrial compostable) – underpins its Mondi Action Plan 2030 (or MAP2030) commitment to make all its packaging and paper products reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025. Within this, and despite the compostable certification, Mondi said that recyclability remains its focus, ‘to keep fibres in circulation’.

Products now certified as compostable include EcoVantage kraft paper, which combines fresh and recycled fibres for sustainable and food compliant shopping packaging, and Advantage MF EcoComp, used for paper bags for wet organic household waste.

Silvia Hanzelova, sales director for specialty kraft paper at Mondi said, ‘Certifications like these illustrate our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with the most suitable and sustainable packaging materials and solutions. They give all our industrial, commercial and manufacturing customers the confidence that our papers are compostable and reassure them that, with us, they are working towards a more sustainable future.’
