Making use of eco-friendly inks is a big part of the move toward more sustainable printing methods. While no ink is 100-percent free from non-renewable resources or chemicals, modern inks are far better than traditional petroleum inks.
No tooling required. Digital printing technologies are, by nature, more sustainable than traditional printing methods and offer a way forward toward clean, efficient, profitable manufacturing.
OK Compost certification materials need to meet a minimum of 90% biodegradation of plastic materials within 180 days in Home compost and 12 months for Industrial compost.
