The terms “coffee bio-composite” or “coffee bio-plastic” appear to have gained popularity in recent years, but you still do not completely comprehend this potential source of biological materials. Let us learn about this eco-friendly plastic and how it is used in everyday life with Biopolymer Vietnam.
1. What is Bioplastic?
Bioplastic is a type of plastic made from natural ingredients including maize starch, coffee grounds, potatoes, cassava, vegetable lipids, etc.
Bioplastics are classified into two types: biodegradable and non-biodegradable
- Bioplastics that degrade:
Is a plastic that, like PLA, may totally disintegrate into CO2, H2O, and humus in a matter of months to years. These plastics are manufactured from renewable resources such as starch (corn, potato, cassava, etc.) and sugar (cane, sugar beet, …).
- Non-biodegradable plastic
It is a plastic that contains long-degradable plastics such as PE, PS, PET, and PVC. However, it is made from renewable raw resources like starch (corn, potato, cassava…) and sugar (sugarcane, sugar beet…).
2. What exactly is Coffee Bio-composite?
Coffee Bio-Composite from coffee, as the name implies, is a unique combination of natural coffee grounds and traditional PP/PE that is not only friendly to the environment but also capable of totally decomposing into the water, CO2, and biomass and is safe for human health.
Especially with natural coffee ingredients up to 60%, biodegradability is improved, resulting in the most significant favorable environmental impact.
Coffee Bio-composite from coffee is confident to be the most unique and ideal source of materials, entirely replaceable, with current technology explored by a team of experienced engineers for more than ten years. can be used to replace typical PP/PE materials due to their high biodegradability Coffee bio-composite resin has the potential to revolutionize the Vietnamese plastic sector.
3. What is the appeal of coffee bio-composite?
Derived from renewable resources
Coffee is a major cultural and national inspiration in Vietnam, which is currently one of the top countries in terms of coffee production and consumption. Few people expect that the amount of discarded coffee grounds, if not properly cleaned, will produce methane gas in the long term, a gas that increases the greenhouse impact.
As a result, the emergence of Coffee Bio Composite from coffee represents a convergence of the purpose of environmental conservation and the desire to discover a new direction for coffee in the country and around the world.
Because natural ingredients account for more than 60% of the product, it is less reliant on fossil raw materials, resulting in a lower price
The soluble breakdown is a possibility
Coffee Bio-Composite bio-plastics fulfill the most stringent biodegradation requirements set by the aforementioned reputable organizations.
After burying or burning, products break down into biomass, water, CO2, or CH4, capable of assisting plant development and growth, do not decompose into microplastics, and do not contaminate the environment.
Following that, the plants will continue to supply natural components for the manufacture of coffee bioplastics. As a result, the life cycle of the Coffee Bio-composite coffee continues to rotate, generating an ideal cyclic process that contributes to favorable environmental consequences.
America’s products are proud to earn REACH/Rohs certification after passing a series of rigorous testing according to European requirements. Food Contact Materials (FCMs) provide absolute safety when products come into direct contact. even when used with hot meals and beverages (100 degrees Celsius)
Coffee Bio-composite is non-infectious and does not include any dangerous components (BPA) to human health.
Techniques of testing

Products for construction, packaging, home goods, and technology
Applications of Coffee Bio-Composite
The Coffee Bio-composite bio-plastic material from coffee has good formability, hardness, and impact resistance and may be used in a variety of goods.
Typical applications for Coffee Bio-composite bio-plastics from coffee include home products for households, and products for service kinds such as restaurants, hotels, and technology products.
We can absolutely answer that coffee bio-composite from coffee can completely replace traditional plastic based on the above properties and applications. Contributing to the protection of the environment from plastic pollution by using coffee materials and developing sustainable cyclic products for the present and future.
