Marine Biodegradation PHA Straws and Cutlery

WinCup Launches New Line of Biodegradable Straws

WinCup is launching a new line of straws and stirrers made from Danimer Scientific’s Nodax polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA).

Nodax PHA is derived from canola oil and is a marine-biodegradable, soil-biodegradable and home-compostable material.

WinCup is the first manufacturer in the U.S. to successfully produce commercially sellable straws from this unique material. As the demand for off-premise disposable products surges, so does the desire for more environmentally friendly to-go ware that meets consumer performance expectations.

The PHA resin used to manufacture the phade straws and stirrers will be certified by TUV/Vincotte for: biodegradability in marine and soil environments, as well as home- and industrial-compostable environments. Plans for a national rollout of this innovative new straw are underway, and product will be available later this year.
