Moulded Fibre Products achieves certified compostable product status

  • MFP achieves certified compostable product status
  • Will boost the group’s potential market size and competitiveness, and reduce environmental impact.

The Renewable Energy Association congratulates Moulded Fibre Products, the Scunthorpe based company that has just achieved certified compostable product status for its range of trays made from recycled cardboard waste. The manufacturing of a product that is both made of recycled material, and that can be further recycled in industrial composting processes, underlines the company’s commitment to protect the environment.

Moulded Fibre Products have worked closely with Renewable Energy Assurance Ltd. (REAL) and Berlin based certification body DIN CERTCO to achieve the certification of their product under the European Bioplastics Seedling Logo certification scheme and the DIN Gepruft Industrial certification scheme both of which are based on the European standard EN13432.

Gordon Thompson, Technical Officer at the Renewable Energy Association, who manages compostable and bio-based certification schemes for REAL, commented:

"This certificate enables Moulded Fibre Products to demonstrate their commitment to the environment and sustainability throughout the supply chain and we hope that more innovative companies will be encouraged to apply for the certification of their products under this scheme.” 

Mr Lee Sleight, Operations Manager at Moulded Fibre Products said:

"We are very excited about this new certification. It will grow our business in Europe as well as within the UK, and reduce our environmental footprint. Doing more business in the European Union was a primary driver of applying for the compostable product certification, as many European supermarkets are now requesting it. ”
