What is Industrial Compost ?

When it comes to composting, heat is usually the most important ingredient. And when it comes to industrial composting, you need a lot of it.
Industrially compostable items (such as compostable coffee cups and utensils) are generally thicker and contain greater amounts of compostable material.
They require higher temperatures (around 70°C) in order to break down within a reasonable time frame (usually 90% degradation in 90 days).
Industrially compostable products can hold a few certifications. The table below shows international standards.
