ITC’s Paperboards & Specialty Papers Division has launched FiloBev — an innovative sustainable solution for serving beverages replacing single-use non-recyclable plastics and LDPE coated cups.
Watch: Paper Mart News Roundup.
In the interest of health and safety, ITC-PSPD has observed a shift towards disposable packaging for food and beverages.
FiloBev is made with wood fibers from sustainably managed plantation and coated with a special barrier that gives excellent water-resistant properties.
This brings us to the waste generated by food and beverage packaging:
- FiloBev is 100% recyclable as certified by CPPRI (Central Pulp & Paper Research Institute) and can be recycled in any existing standard recycling systems.
- The board and the barrier coating conform to stringent food contact codes
- FiloBev can be converted in standard cup making machines
