Kotkamills, a Finland based manufacturer of fully recyclable barrier boards, has signed a significant collaboration agreement with Lavazza Professional.
As a result of the collaboration, Lavazza Professional is announcing today the new KLIX Eco Cup, an eco-friendly cup made from ISLA food service board, available from February in its KLIX® in-cup vending machines.
"We are pleased about the collaboration with Lavazza Professional. The company is a frontrunner in bringing eco-friendly solutions to the beverage vending sector, and they are ambitiously striving to implement a model of sustainability that responds to the challenge of reducing plastic in the next couple of years," saidKotkamills CEO Markku Hämäläinen in the press release.
The barrier property of the Kotkamills' foodservice board is based on a water-based dispersion coating, eliminating the need for a separate polyethylene coating. Therefore, the cups do not have to be processed at a recycling plant – instead, they are recyclable with normal paper waste, like office paper.
