Compostable Coffee and Tea Paper

Compostable paper for Coffee and Tea

 

As we all know, nowadays products that contain plastic but are not compostable can become a big problem. This concern has inspired us to develop a new family of products called COMPOFILT.

 

Our new COMPOFILT meets the EN 13432 standard for compostability of materials, which naturally disintegrates in 10 weeks. COMPOFILT also has the four-star OK Biobased certification, which indicates the highest percentage of renewable raw materials.

 

Our new filter paper offers a plastic-free and certified compostable alternative. The technology consists of replacing plastic with PLA, a material that has the same properties, but is renewable, biodegradable and compostable.

 

PLA is a biopolymer derived completely from sugar extracts of annually grown plants (maize). PLA meets the food contact requirements for the hot beverage industry and is compostable according to EN13432.
