New Biodegradable Coffee Capsules

ALPLA and materials manufacturer Golden Compound have developed a biodegradable coffee capsule that can be home composted.

The capsule is made from Golden Compound green, an material with natural fibres from sunflower seed shells.

The oxygen barrier is very comparable with plastics such as PP-EVOH-PP.

The capsule and filter fleece are GMO-free and aluminium free and are completely biodegradable in the garden compost within maximum six months.

The capsule is aroma-proof and certified with ‘OK compost HOME’ and ‘OK biodegradable SOIL’ standard from TÜV.
