How to Keep Innovating the Nonwovens Industry: New Applications for Single-Serve Coffee

Paper represents one of the oldest product we ever made.
Years after years we improved it, optimized it and after centuries we look again at this media wondering how to make it better. To reinvent a solution we have to look at the problem we are trying to solve without the same eyes we had when we created. Single serve coffee systems are one of the most common products used in everyday life and they’re generating some environmental challenges linked to the after use of these capsules.

Reconsider these products design thinking about their end of life is the key for a new prospective in the nonwovens application for the coffee market.

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.

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.
