Bio Futura offers a wide range of compostable cups for hot and cold drinks. The disposable cups are available in various sizes and qualities. The biodegradable cups for hot drinks are made of paperboard with a bioplastic coating. We also offer cups made entirely of bioplastic, which can only be used for cold content. The majority of the cups are certified compostable and all cups are made from renewable resources such as cornstarch. Since the coffee cups and bioplastic cups are completely biodegradable, they have minimal impact on the environment.
The disposables cups are made of different materials. The coffee cups are made of chlorine-free bleached paperboard and have a bioplastic coating on the inside. The coating is made of cornstarch and is heat-resistant up to 80 degrees. The transparant cups are made completely out of transparant bioplastic, also known as PLA. Just like the coating of the coffee cups, PLA is made of cornstarch, but is not heat-resistant. It is made of renewable resources such as corn, without the use of oil or other fossil resources. The products are biodegradable, compostable and the majority is certified compostable by EN-13432.
