Compostable Food Packaging is the Future
When coated with our fully biodegradable coatings, compostable food containers can be used for everything from coffee cups and straws, to microwave meal packs.
Thankfully “the food sector” is moving away from using food and drink containers which are non-compostable. However the whole story still contains a worrying element as many of the latest generation of food containers which are made from compressed natural plant based fibre are coated with PFASs.
As noted in SciTechDaily.com: "…this study provides the first evidence that polymeric PFAS used in food packaging break down into smaller molecules that are still harmful and can leach into food and the environment."
Having long been aware of this hazard CCM has focused on supplying a coating which is completely free of PFAS.
