The natural cellulose fibers are compostable/biodegradable, however, upon completion of composting, a residue of synthetic fibers (Polyefin) will remain. This prevents this paper from meeting the EN13432 requirements for composability. So most of it will break down easily, but the fibers will not entirely.
