More than 50% of the Biobased packaging range from Cups4you is based on renewable raw material. This renewable raw material is made from sugar cane. With this we currently replace more than 50% of the conventional, oil-based, raw materials.
The biobased packaging is functionally equivalent to the conventional packaging. The packaging is food safe and meets the requirements of migration and organoleptics. Practical all models within our existing range can be produced as biobased packaging. We are happy to advise you about the possibilities.
Frequently asked questions
Reduction in the use of fossil raw material stocks, positive contribution to CO2 reduction, and a substantial increased circularity (post-life and pre-life).
How is biobased plastic made?
Sugar is extracted from sugar cane through pressing. The first, richest pressing of the sugar cane is used for consumption purposes. The less rich follow-up pressing is then used for, among other things, the production of biobased plastic. The extracted sugar is converted to Ethanol (alcohol), from which Bio polyethylene is then made.
Is a biobased packaging recyclable?
These packages are fully recyclable. The post-life circularity in Europe is only 42,4%2. By using bio plastic, however, pre-life circularity of more than 50% is added, which greatly increases the total circularity of the packaging.
Why not degradable?
No degradable material because the waste collection logistics for this is missing.
Are there special processing requirements for biobased packaging?
Functional performance corresponds to conventional packaging such as denesting, impact resistance, dimensions, fittings (container/lid), liquid tightness, top load, hot fill. In addition, the impact resistance at low temperatures of the biobased material has been found to be better than that of the conventional material.
