Food packaging is one of the most regulated areas for ink and packaging manufacturers – and rightfully so. The packaging can come into direct and indirect food contact, which is why Resino strive to offer products that continuously meet or exceed the market demands.

OK Compost Home & OK Compost Industrial certifications (REVALUX 164 Varnish 0115-05*).
The OK Compost Home and OK Compost Industrial certifications are internationally recognized standards for compostability. These certifications ensure that products and materials meet specific criteria for their ability to decompose in home composting systems (OK Compost Home) or industrial composting facilities (OK Compost Industrial). At Resino Inks, we have obtained the prestigious OK Compost Home & OK Compost Industrial certifications for REVALUX 164 Varnish 0115-05.
OK Compost Home
The OK Compost Home certification signifies that a product is suitable for composting in backyard or home composting systems. It guarantees that the product will break down into compost without leaving any harmful residues or negatively impacting the composting process. This certification is particularly relevant for items like food waste bags, packaging materials, and compostable utensils used in household composting setups.
OK Compost Industrial
On the other hand, the OK Compost Industrial certification is applicable to products that are intended for composting in large-scale industrial facilities. These facilities provide controlled environments with specific conditions for efficient decomposition. Products with this certification can be safely processed in these facilities, ensuring that they will not hinder the composting process or cause any adverse effects.
*A finished product made from an OK compost INDUSTRIAL / OK compost HOME certified base or intermediate like Revalux 164 Varnish 0115-05 does not automatically comply with the requirements of the OK compost INDUSTRIAL / OK compost HOME certification scheme. Due to the other unknown components that can be added to the finished product, this completed item needs to undergo OK compost INDUSTRIAL / OK compost HOME certification in order to obtain permission to use the OK compost INDUSTRIAL / OK compost HOME label on this finished product.
Although we have already achieved notable certifications, our ambition is to further enhance our practices and prioritize the safety of our customers.
