Date: 3 Apr 2008

Dzolv Products Pty Ltd announces the launch of their ground breaking biodegradable and compostable coffee cup lids. “The EFGLO” branded lids have been manufactured to compliment their 8oz, 12oz and 16oz “EFGLO” branded insulated coffee cups. Working in tandem with leading research and development company Minima Technology, Dzolv Products believes that they now have the world’s first biodegradable and compostable lids, which is a major development for the coffee industry. In 2006 the estimated figure for takeaway coffee cups was 395 million cups per year, so it is fair to say that is a lot of lids. Assuming every cup was to have a lid this would equate to approximately 1,580 tonnes of conventional plastic, at an average weight of 4gms per lid that can be diverted away from land fill sites with the use of this new technology. Whilst the cost of these new lids is higher than conventional plastic lids, the savings to the environment far outweigh the unit cost. These new lids will be launched at the Foodpro 2008 Expo in July at the Convention Centre in Sydney.
