Bio-converters from Oklin - the exclusive distribution rights for Germany and Benelux are held by PAPSTAR Solutions GmbH (Germany) and Conpax B.V. (Oosterhout/Nijmegen) respectively, a PAPSTAR Group company - use microbiological technologies in a closed chamber to decompose organic waste of plant origin and even biodegradable disposable tableware by fibre extraction and reduce the volume by up to 90 percent in 24 hours.
The challenges in securing a green future are massive: PAPSTAR is pioneering in the example it sets and accompanies the complete life cycle of its products in order to give them a new life after they have been used. With the Zero-Waste-Cycle-System the PAPSTAR Solutions GmbH offers customers from the gastronomy, catering, hotel and canteen segments - but also those in the field of large-scale events - a hygienic and also sustainable system solution from one single source.
PLA (polylactide) is a material made from renewable, raw vegetable materials (corn starch) that is completely biodegradable; in terms of appearance, the cups are hardly distinguishable from conventional plastic cups, if at all. The recycling system provided by PAPSTAR Solutions GmbH for these cups is increasingly in demand, not least for reasons of hygiene. The bottom line is that recovered PLA granulate can be used to produce new cups and other bio-based plastics.
The "paper cup" from PAPSTAR is made of FSC®-certified (Forest Stewardship Council) virgin fiber cardboard without any coating and is therefore ideal for paper recycling. The only condition is that the used cups are "residue-empty" (drip-free). Paper fibers can be recycled ten to 25 times. Recycled paper is mainly used to produce magazines and newspapers, exercise books, printer paper or packaging paper such as cardboard boxes.
