Plastic-free coffee lid reducing CO2 footprint with 80%, introduced by PulPac, made green inside by OrganoClick

OrganoClick and PulPac has collaborated for several years in developing 100% biobased and biodegradable dry-molded products. By combining PulPac’s dry molded fiber technology with OrganoClick’s biobased and biodegradable binders, a biobased high-performing coffee lid, compliant with paper recycling have been developed. The innovative coffee lid is now launched for the take away market.     

PulPac’s technology in combination with OrganoClick’s biobased binders sets a new standard for high performing and sustainable packaging. It requires less energy and water than the traditional method, resulting in a reduced carbon footprint with up to 80% compared to traditional alternatives.

One of the first products out is a plastic-free coffee lid which align with the recent EU legislation for take away product. Annual global consumption of coffee lids is estimated at 100,000,000,000 and with the new coffee lid, the CO2 footprint is reduced with up to 80%.

“The coffee lid is just one example from the range of standardized Dry Molded Fiber applications available that align with the recent EU legislations for take away. This easily implementable and scalable on-the-go alternative fits seamlessly into a modern lifestyle”, says Viktor Börjesson, Chief Operating Officer at PulPac.

The coffee lid is made green inside with the support of OrganoClick’s biobased, biodegradable and home compostable binder, in part manufactured from waste streams from the food industry. The use of OrganoClick’s binder resulting in a paper lid with much higher performance. The objectives are also to replace as much as possible of traditional plastic lids available on the market, thereby reducing the risk for microplastics ending up in the environment.

”The work PulPac is doing ties very well into OrganoClicks strategy to replace hidden plastic and supporting our customers green transition in the near time by providing the product with a green inside”, says Mårten Hellberg, CEO and OrganoClick.
