What are PLA and CPLA?

Plant sugars are used to create polylactic acid. This is a compostable bioplastic derived from plant sugars, such as:

  • Corn starch
  • Cassava
  • Sugar cane 
  • Sugar beet

PLA is made with the glucose extracted from the starch. The fermentation of starch produces lactic acid, which will be transformed into a polymer useful for a huge range of applications, including Eco-Friendly Cups and Straws.

CPLA stands for crystallised CPLA and is ideal for higher heat use. PLA has a low melt point, but CPLA has more heat resistance. 

Our team works hard to help more and more businesses become economically and environmentally sustainable as possible. Thus, we always strive to add more items to our range. And you can rest assured they comply with the necessary standards.
