Greenware solutions - Cold cups
Greenware® Cup made from Ingeo™.
What is Ingeo?
INGEO BIOPOLYMER STARTS WITH PLANTS
Greenware® Cup is made from Ingeo™ biopolymer, a PLA resin derived entirely from plants and is 100% compostable in actively managed municipal or industrial facilities. Ingeo is made from dextrose (sugar) that is derived from field corn already grown for many industrial & functional end-uses.
This revolutionary bioplastic is made up of long molecular chains of the polymer polylactide. It is derived from naturally-occurring plant sugar.
Are PLA products microwave and freezer safe?
The PLA clear products are heat resistant up to 45ºC . Therefore, PLA products are good for cold products. PLA is freezer safe, but PLA is not microwave safe.
Can people use Ingeo corn based plastic if they are allergic to corn?
Yes. Ingeo plastic is a corn-derived plastic; however, Ingeo is certified to contain no genetic material. During its high heat manufacturing processing, it eliminates any immunologically reactive contents. Because of this, Ingeo can be safely used by people who are allergic to corn.
Production process does not require corn; It requires a sugar source. In the future, this will include cellulosic raw materials, agricultural wastes and non-food plants.
Ingeo production requires less than 1/25th of 1% (0.04%) of the annual global corn crop today, so there’s little to no impact on food prices or supply.
