Compostable Coffee Capsules Made with NatureWorks’ Ingeo Biopolymer Score Highest Sustainability Marks

A study by Wageningen Food & Biobased Research found that coffee capsules made with Ingeo PLA biopolymer from NatureWorks outperform aluminum, conventional plastics, and other compostable capsules in sustainability performance. The study assessed the environmental impact and circularity of single-use coffee capsules made from compostable biobased materials, aluminum, and conventional plastics through various end-of-life scenarios. Compostable capsules maintain a 100% Material Circularity Indicator (MCI) when composted, ensuring sustainability even in improper disposal scenarios.
