Traditionally, food service packaging such as hot/cold cups, ice cream containers, frozen food cartons and food trays are coated with 100% polyethylene and similar materials for barrier properties to moisture, oils, grease and fatty acids. Paperboards with these legacy coatings are poor candidates for recycling and generally destined for a landfill. However, paper cups with EarthCoating provide great potential for post-consumer recyclability. The materials with EarthCoating do not require any special processing and are fully recyclable when collected. Paperboards with EarthCoating technology offer a recyclable alternative for the approximately 700,000 tons of 100% polyethylene-coated paper cup material produced annually in the US.
Recyclable paperboard with EarthCoating is a technology engineered by Smart Planet Technologies.
EarthCoating is a registered trademark of Smart Planet Technologies.
