Composting can significantly reduce the volume of organic waste, and the compost produced can be used as a fertilizer in agriculture and horticulture. Packaging or products with the OK Compost Industrial mark are guaranteed biodegradable in an industrial composting plant.
In home composting the volume of waste involved is relatively small and the temperature of the garden composter is much lower and less constant than in an industrial composting environment. This is why home composting is a more difficult and slower process. The OK Compost Home certification guarantees the complete biodegradability of the products even in the domestic composter.
