W-Cycle SupraPulp food-grade compostable packaging

Wednesday, 21 October, 2020 | Supplied by: W-Cycle

Israeli start-up W-Cycle has developed a plastic-free packaging made of sugarcane waste.

Called SupraPulp, the packaging is claimed to be fully compostable and safe, yet durable enough to be used for greasy, wet or hot food.

Packaged food with SupraPulp can be frozen and heated with either an oven, convection oven, steam cooker or microwave.

The food-grade, compostable packaging is designed as a replacement for plastic, aluminium or foam containers.

The containers are made from 100% renewable sugarcane fibres, called bagasse — the dry, pulpy fibrous matter that remains after sugarcane or sorghum stalks are crushed to extract their juice.

They are compostable, non-coated and free of toxins and metals.

Suitable for a range of food applications such as prepared food, fresh meat, poultry and seafood, the packaging can be frozen to -40°C and reheated to 270°C.
