Ahlstrom, a sustainable speciality materials provider, has launched a new fibre-based, home-compostable lid for single-serve coffee capsules.  

Dubbed PureLid, the new lid serves as a high-performing alternative to traditional aluminium or plastic lids.  

The new solution is claimed to be not only ready to seal on coffee capsules but also maintains the coffee’s freshness and flavour thanks to its oxygen barrier. 

It features a built-in filter that ensures a clean brewing process and a pure coffee taste. 

PureLid is compatible with common biobased coffee capsules, making it an ideal choice for brands aiming to minimise their environmental impact, the company claimed 

Ahlstrom’s patented PureLid secured the OK compost HOME and OK compost INDUSTRIAL certifications from TÜV, thereby confirming its compostability both at home and in industrial settings.

These certifications were granted following testing by an ISO 17025-accredited independent laboratory. 

Ahlstrom Beverage & Casing business vice-president Philippe Sevoz said: “It was a substantial challenge to transition from industrial compostable solutions to home-compostable ones while maintaining the high-performance standards of our coffee capsule lidding solutions and the crucial oxygen barrier.

“Ahlstrom is committed to sustainability and innovation, and PureLid is a testament to our dedication to creating sustainable solutions for the coffee industry. We believe that PureLid will not only enhance the coffee experience but also contribute to a more sustainable future for our customers and their consumers.” 

In October last year, Ahlstrom closed the sale of 100% of its paper mill plant in Stenay, France, to German investment fund Accursia Capital.
