1. What is bioplastic ?
Bioplastic is a type of plastic produced from natural materials such as corn starch, coffee grounds, potatoes, cassava, vegetable fats, etc.
There are two types of bioplastics: biodegradable and non-biodegradable.
- Biodegradable plastic: Is a plastic that can completely decompose into CO2, H2O and humus in just a few months to a few years like PLA. These plastics are made from renewable materials such as starch (corn, potato, cassava, …), sugar (cane, sugar beet, …).
- Non-biodegradable plastic: It is a plastic in its composition that contains long-degradable plastics such as PE, PS, PET, PVC, etc. But it is produced from renewable raw materials such as starch (corn, potato, cassava …), sugar ( sugarcane, sugar beet…)
2. What is coffee biocomposite ?
As the name suggests, Coffee BioComposite made from coffee grounds is a unique combination of natural coffee grounds and traditional PP/PE, which is not only harmless to the environment but also capable of completely decomposed into water, CO2 and biomass, safe for human health.
Especially with natural coffee ingredients up to 50%, so the biodegradability is optimized, bringing the most positive impact to the environment.
With modern technology researched by a team of experienced engineers for more than 10 years, Coffee Biocomposite made from coffee grounds is confident to be the most unique and optimal source of materials, and can replace traditional PP/PE materials with high biodegradability. Coffee Biocomposite made from coffee grounds promises to bring a new transformation to Vietnam’s plastic industry.
3. Why is Coffee Bio-composite made from coffee grounds so popular?
Derived from renewable materials
Vietnam is currently one of the top countries in terms of coffee production and consumption, and coffee is a strong cultural and national inspiration. One thing few people expect is that the amount of discarded coffee grounds, if not treated properly, in the long run will produce methane gas – a gas that increases the greenhouse effect.
Therefore, the birth of Coffee Bio Composite made from coffee grounds is the crystallization of the mission of protecting the environment and the desire to find a new direction for coffee in the country and the world.
Natural ingredients in the product account for 30-50%, so the product is less dependent on fossil raw materials, from which the price is also more reasonable.
Coffee Biocomposite made from coffee grounds meets the strictest biodegradation standards from prestigious organizations around the world such as DIN CERTCO, TUV AUSTRIA, USDA, etc.
Products after burying or burning will decompose into biomass, water, CO2 or CH4, capable of helping the development and growth of plants, do not decompose into microplastics, do not pollute the environment.
After that, the plants will continue to provide natural materials for the production of coffee bioplastics. Thus, the life cycle of Coffee Biocomposite made from coffee grounds continues to rotate, forming an optimal cyclic process, contributing to positive effects on the environment.
Safe for health
Passing a series of rigorous tests according to European standards, America’s products are proud to achieve REACH/Rohs certification, Food Contact Materials (FCMs) ensure absolute safety when products come into direct contact. with food, even when used with hot food and drinks (100 degrees Celsius)
Coffee Biocomposite made from coffee grounds is committed to being non-infectious, free of harmful ingredients (BPA) for human health.
Typical customer application
Blowing moulding; Extrusion moulding; Injection moulding
Good processability, good formability, good hardness, light coffee smell, high flowability.
Construction products, packaging products, household products, technology products.
Applications of Coffee Biocomposite made from coffee grounds
Possessing good formability, hardness and high impact resistance, the Coffee Bio-composite bio-plastic material from coffee can be applied to many products. Typically, the types of products that can be applied from the Coffee Biocomposite made from coffee grounds are household products for households; products for service types such as restaurants, hotels and technology products.
Through the above characteristics and applications, we can completely answer that coffee biocomposite made from coffee grounds can completely replace traditional plastic. Contributing to protecting the environment from plastic pollution, taking advantage of coffee materials and creating sustainable cyclic products in the present and in the future.
