US-based Evergreen Packaging has unveiled a new line of fully renewable cup stock, a fibre-based or paperboard product made with bio-based polyethylene.
The new cup stock uses a renewable sugarcane-based polyethylene provided by Braskem, a subsidiary of Odebrecht Group, and produces thermoplastic resins.
Evergreen Packaging supplies cup stock to companies that convert it into cups for cold and hot beverages.
Evergreen Packaging global board sales managing director Chris Johns said: "Our new cup stock reflects the company’s commitment to supporting our customer’s business goals.
"It runs dependably and seamlessly like other forms of polyethylene coated stock.
"This allows our customers to offer a fully renewable cup without any change to their existing manufacturing process."
Evergreen Packaging has manufacturing facilities in the US, Asia, Central America and Middle East / North Africa.
Last month, the company introduced a new product line, SmartPak cartons, with 40oz, 48oz, 52oz and 59oz size options.
This new product line provides benefits for branding, sustainability, transportation and storage.
