Frequently asked questions
How is a Cupbio cup any different from a traditional paper cup?
A traditional paper cup has a film of plastic on top of the cartonboard in order to be watertight. In a Cupbio cup this plastic has been replaced with a water based dispersion that gives the cup excellent properties and makes it 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
Is there any plastic in your products?
No – All Cupbios carry a European Flustix plastic free certification.
Although all single-use papercups are under the SUP-directive, Cupbios are however plastic free and fully recyclable.
Is there a difference between Hot and Cold Cupbio?
No there isn’t. They both have a waterproof dispersion coating on the inside of the cup.
Are Cupbio cups biodegradable?
Yes. Cupbio cups are biodegradable and 100% recyclable.

PE, PLA cups…the slang seams difficult. How is Cupbio placed within these?
Excellent question! Paper cups need some form of insulation against liquid and fats. Traditionally this is achieved with coating the cartonboard with a film of PE (Polyethene) plastic. Somewhat similar properties can be achieved with foodplant based PLA (Poly lactic acid) coating. PLA is industrially biodegradable, which has a little to do with biodegradability in nature, but is considered a plastic when it is recycled. Cupbio cups are made of Finnish cupstock that is coated with a water based dispersion making our cups 100% recyclable and biodegradable even in nature.
