Qu'est-ce que le compostage industriel ?

What is industrial composting?

What is industrial composting?

Industrial composting facilities create the perfect environment for biodegradable waste* to decompose into nutrient-rich compost. The entire process can take from six weeks to six months, depending on temperature (typically 50–60°C), moisture, oxygen density and particle size.

* Biodegradable waste can be commonly found in municipal solid waste as green waste, food waste, paper waste and biodegradable plastics.

By 2023, separate biowaste collection will be mandatory in the EU!

Organic components are recycled in the same way nature recycles itself. A major part of the materials is turned into CO2, CH4, and water. The remaining mineral components, including nutrients, are recycled back into compost. If these resources are managed effectively, they can be part of a circular economy that helps rebuild soil health and provides feedstock for factories or energy plants

Industrial composting is widely available in many European countries such as Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Austria and the United Kingdom.

In France, it is gradually expanding. Several cities like Lorient, Châlons-en-Champagne or Clermont-Ferrand have already included industrial composting as part of their waste treatment policy.

Why choose this packaging?
- Because recycling is good, but not enough.

Almost 300 million tons of plastic are produced every year.
An estimate 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the global cosmetics industry, most of which are not recyclable.

A lot of that plastic is needed to make useful things that last.
However, all too often, the plastic we use ends up in the wrong place.

Ocean with plastic objects floating on the surface

Right now, our oceans are filling up with plastics that degrade into smaller and smaller pieces, or microplastics. Under these standards, by 2050, there will be more plastic waste than fish in our oceans.

In order to harmoniously coexist with nature, we want to pay keen attention to our environmental footprint and constantly devote our efforts to finding sustainable solutions for every aspect of our products.

We are here to fully take care of ourselves, and that includes taking care of our planet.
