Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • PLA products were produced from renewable resources such as corn and sugarcane instead of petroleum, thus offsetting the United States’ need for foreign oil and reducing waste.
  • In conventional paper cups they are coated with PE (Polyethylene) derived from oil, to make board waterproof. Cups coated in PLA (Polylatic acid) the plastic is derived from plants, so both the board and the coating are derived from fully renewable sources.
  • Today, plastic is not the best material to use for any mass produced product because it is definitely not biodegradable.
  • Paper products coated with PE/PET are friendlier to our environment than plastic.
  • However, polymers that coat these paper products are still not as biodegradable as 100% pure PLA coated eco friendly paper products.
  • PLA coated paper eco products can be repulped and made into basic raw materials likes tissue or kraft paper. PLA paper products are recyclable and re-usable.
  • Originally, 100% pure PLA coated paper eco products were perceived to be more expensive than traditional PE/PET coated products.
  • However, because PE/PET resin is petroleum based, mounting oil prices have lead to a tremendous increase in price of PE/PET coated paper products. Thus, 100% pure PLA eco friendly paper products are similarly priced to traditional PE/PET products and are also completely biodegradable.
  • The Ingeo™ biopolymer (PLA) used in ecotainer® products has been modified to maintain the required performance characteristics for paperboard packaging under elevated temperatures.
  • This packaging has demonstrated performance in the market as a hot beverage cup and food container in the market for more than four years.
  • Previously PLA has been mainly used on Plastic Glasses designed for cold drinks. This is because PLA would begin to dissolve if it touched a hot drink.
  • The latest varities are temperature treated to make it suitable for use with piping hot drinks; this advance has made the coating appropriate for use with paper coffee cups.
  • A main benefit of PLA coated paper cups is that the coating is made from a renewable resource, this accounts for roughly 5% of the material used for an average single-wall paper cup.
  • PLA-based coated paper provides water-proofing and
    grease resistance that is competitive with a PE coated paper.
