Alice, It would be interesting to learn more about about your lid project. By way of introduction, we heavily mineralized plastic resin for various paperboard barrier packaging applications including paper cups. By heavily mineralizing traditional plastics (petroleum or bio based), we can remove over half of the plastic, drive costs down and create repulpable paperboard barrier packaging applications. Please let me know your availability for a call. SmartPlanetTech.com
Hi Jenna, I like your idea and would be curious what type of interior barrier coating/layer you intend on using? Are you going to use the traditional multi-layer type structure? Are you open to making use of innovative barrier materials in support of recyclability? It would be interesting to explore the possibilities and I look forward to your reply. Thanks for your consideration and best of luck with your project. - Todd Gasparik, Smart Planet Technologies (Todd@SmartPlanetTech.com)
It would be great to speak with you about how EarthCoating and your new coffee cup design could be used together in support of paper cup recycling initiatives. Please let me know your availability for a call to discuss the details and best of luck to you with the challenge.
