Technology and the Machine to Make Compostable Coffee Cups

Compostable PLA coffee cups is an important market. Straight PLA is used if is reached enough crystallinity. This presentation will show the key factor for manufacturing PLA compostable coffee cups. A step further is compostable barrier solution. This is possible thanks to the evolution of the technology: a simple 5 layer (PLA/ tie/barrier/tie/PLA) solution is shown.

Don’t just take our word for it

You can create value by doing something that's good for the world, and I'm not talking about making money and then giving it away. I'm talking about the way you make money is by doing something that the world needs, and so that's what's so -- one of the things that's so inspiring about being here is that that is underlying all the businesses here.

I'm inspired from the standpoint that I'm coming back from the conference with an understanding of more of the material science. And that's really, really, really important because that means that it's going to impact work that I've got going on in the laboratory right now.
Jesse Hipps
Anyone that's out there, whether you're a product or service provider or just somebody that wants to understand what's happening in the bioplastics industry, I recommend strongly that you think about coming to Innovation Takes Root. This is a conference where you're going to learn a lot, you're going to actually be able to have the opportunity to collaborate with others and develop partnerships that will last a lifetime.
