Finalist De Gouden Noot 2016 - Fully biobased and compostable coffee capsule

The coffee capsule and top lid film is the first fully biobased and compostable coffee capsule that has an excellent barrier, which makes an additional layer of barrier packaging obsolete and still keeps the flavour of the coffee at the required level.

This innovation has important advantages in the field of:
1) The environment,
2) savings on packaging,
3) quality and flavour of coffee,
4) Shelf life of the product,
5) The cups can be used in any Nespresso machine.

The cups and film are biobased and fully compostable according to EN 13432, and makes minimal use of fossil fuels. After use they can be discarded in the organic waste bin, where they will turn into compost and can be used as new nutrition for the raw materials for new cups (organic recycling).
