These 8oz and 12oz Compostable Biocup Lids are made from heat resistant Ingeo PLA, a renewable bioplastic derived from plant-based starch.
The diameter measures 83mm at the top and it is 17mm deep for the 8oz lids and 94mm and depth is 18mm for the 12oz lids.
Made in Taiwan.
BioCup Lids are commercially compostable under Australian Standard AS4736.
This means they will break down into usable soil only via a commercial composting facility.
Commercial composting is not widely available in Australia. Contact your council to find out if it is available for you. If you are from South Australia you can notify your council to let them know you are placing commercially compostable tableware in your green organics bin as this service is available throughout SA.
The manufacturing process for these products uses less energy and emits less pollution than petroleum-based products. It also generates fewer greenhouse gases.
