BIO THERMO 95 – THE HEAT RESISTANT BIOLOGICAL STRAW
THE HEAT RESISTANT STRAW
Even warm drinks are often decorated with a straw. Therefore, we have developed a special straw for warm beverages and food: the heatstable and sustainable Bio Thermo 95° C for coffee, tea, soups etc. Organic, sustainable, degradable and heat resistant up to 95 degrees. This is now possible with this sustainable drinking straw
The heat stable eye-catcher – vegan and allergy-free
The BIO-Thermo 95 ° C Straws are being made of a certified and biodegradable plastic. This plastic mainly consists of renewable raw materials and mineral fillers of also natural origin.
The BIO-Thermo 95 ° C Straws are 60% bio-based and fully biodegradable in industrial composting plants. In the composting process, water, oxygen and heat split the plastic so that it can be digested by microorganisms, leaving only valuable compost that can be used as fertilizer for the cultivation of new plants.
Thus, the BIO-Thermo 95 ° C Straws contribute to the recycling management and to the decrease in environmental pollution and are offering considerable advantages during their whole life cycle.
The pellets of which the straws are being produced fulfill the requirements of the European standard DIN EN 13432 and the “US Standard ASTM6400” for compostable and biodegradable polymers.
What remains is valuable compost that can be used as fertilizer for the cultivation of new plants. Thus, they make a valuable contribution to the circular economy and the reduction of environmental pollution and offer significant benefits throughout the entire life cycle. The granules from which the drinking straws are made comply with the “European standard DIN13432” for compostable and biodegradable polymers.
