German firm Melitta Single Portions and SABIC have partnered to create new premium organic tea capsules made from certified circular polypropylene (PP). 

Melitta’s new brand Avoury has become the world’s first tea capsules made using SABIC’s TRUCIRCLE solution for certified circular SABIC QRYSTAL copolymer.

The transparent tea capsules are specifically designed for the new Avoury One tea machine it launched late last year.

The certified circular PP leverages feedstock made from used plastic.

Melitta Single Portions CEO Holger Feldmann: “We naturally want to ensure an exceptional tea experience and we want to prove that it is possible for resources to be used responsibly. With Avoury tea capsules we can prove both.”

SABIC’s TRUCIRCLE solution for certified circular SABIC QRYSTAL copolymer can be recycled.

The heat resistant packaging protects the tea leaves and its lightweight design helps preserve the leaves’ quality.

SABIC circular economy leader Mark Vester said: “Avoury tea capsules are a great example of collaboration and innovation between SABIC and Melitta Single Portions to create the world’s first tea capsules made using our TRUCIRCLE circular solutions. At SABIC, we are committed to deliver sustainable solutions for our customers and are closer than ever to closing the loop on used plastic.”

Last month, SABIC launched sustainable packaging solution for frozen food which integrates a new polyethylene (PE) grade with innovative film production technology.
