Siria is Certified as Biodegradable and Compostable

Compostability

The composting process could significantly reduce the amount of waste; the compost can be used for agricultural and horticultural purposes. Around 50% of all domestic waste is made by organic material. The percentage is likely to increase in the future, given the spread of biodegradable products. Siria cat litter is certified as compostable product.

All products with the OK compost INDUSTRIAL logo are ensured to be biodegradable within the biogas industrial plants. This includes all components. The only reference to the certification process concerns the en 13432: 2000 standard: each product labelled with OK compost should follow the EU Packaging Directive (94/62/EEC) requirements.

Because of the reduced amount of waste, temperature is clearly lower and less constant within the domestic compost if compared with the environment of the industrial biogas plant. This happens mainly because the composting process in the garden is slower and more difficult. TUV AUSTRIA came up with an innovative answer to this specific challenge: to develop the OK compost HOME as an assurance of biodegradability, also within the cumulus of garden compost.

Compostability Biodegradation

Biodegradation

There’s more than what you think in the biodegradation process! An entire army of microorganisms attacking and demolishing the material, depending on the environment (right temperature, humidity, ph, oxygen, etc.) The certified product must be disposed of into the right biodegradation environment, where it has passed the proper certification tests. As a matter of fact, Belgium already introduced a new legislation stating that a certified product cannot be disposed of everywhere just because it is biodegradable. TUV AUSTRIA specialists backed this legislation – which is now applied only in Belgium – and are able to specify the right environment for a proper biodegradation of their products, thanks to brand’s verifications. Siria is a biodegradable certified product.
