One of the main reasons that will convince you to give up the habit of using oil-based plastic cups is to protect your own health. Because some chemicals in traditional single-use plastic products often contain plasticizers, colorants, lead, cadmium, etc., which can leak into food and beverage and then be absorbed into the human body when using products. These chemicals, once accumulated for a long time in our body, will lead to a series of consequences such as cancer, hormonal changes, …

In addition, the increase in the volume of single-use plastics in recent years has led to an increasing amount of plastic waste being discharged into the environment, putting pressure on waste treatment. In the current case, when the treatment of plastic waste is overloaded, they will be discharged into our living environment, directly affecting many aspects of our habitat such as depleting nutrients in the soil, destroying ecosystems, causing flooding in urban areas, destroying marine ecology…

Therefore, let’s use coffee bio-plastic cup as an alternative product to limit the negative impacts of plastic on human health and the environment.

What is the coffee bio-plastic cups?

Coffee bio-plastic cups are similar to regular disposable plastic cups. However, the biggest difference here is the composition of the two products. With conventional disposable plastic cups, it’s main ingredients are oil-based plastics, derived from fossil materials such as PP or PET. As for the disposable coffee bio-plastic cup, the main ingredients will include coffee grounds and primary plastic.

In Vietnam, Biopolymer is an exclusive brand specializing in the distribution of coffee bio-composite materials used for the production of coffee bio-plastic cups as well as other finished products. In addition, Biopolymer also provides services for businesses such as OME / ODM, Whitelabel,…


Production process of coffee bio-plastic cups

In order to turn from used coffee grounds into the perfect bio-plastic cups, the production process is designed to include 6 steps:

  • Step 1: Producing coffee bio-composite materials, with a special blend formula dedicated to the production of coffee bioplastic cups combined with special production technology at Biopolymer.

  • Step 2: Apply injection molding technology. First, the raw material will be put into the material hopper of the machine and heated to melt at a suitable temperature. Next, the molten material will be injected into the closed mold with great pressure through the screw system of the machine. The finished mold will be cooled so that the molten material in the mold turns to a solid state. Finally, open the mold to take out the finished product.

  • Step 4: Engrave logo on semi-finished products.
  • Step 5: Check the quality of the finished product.
  • Step 6: Package.

Advantages of coffee bio-plastic cups

With unique ingredients made from coffee grounds, Biopolymer coffee bio-plastic cups always bring unexpected benefits to users, including the following 5 major benefits:

  1. Attractive cost: Thanks to the reuse of used coffee grounds which have almost zero costs, the product price also becomes much more reasonable compared to conventional single-use plastic cups. Therefore, coffee bio-plastic cups can be easily accessible to a broader set of customers.
  2. Biodegradability: Natural coffee grounds are the decisive factor, supporting the rapid biodegradation process, with the entire decomposition time within just a few years, instead of going on for generations like traditional plastic cups. This makes bio-plastic coffee cups more environmentally friendly than ever.
