In Ahlstrom-Munksjö GreenCapsule Thermoformable filter, the compostable biopolymer has the filtering abilities needed to block residues from passing through; which was previously only achieved with a plastic filter.
The challenge faced in this development was to select a natural fiber strong enough and elastic enough in order to be thermoformed and resistant to the coffee extraction.
Ahlstrom-Munksjö demonstrates today that this standard can also be achieved with a natural, fiber based compostable solution.
Ahlstrom-Munksjö’s innovative filters, entirely made from compostable fibers, offer a great coffee experience no matter the beverage length.
Thanks to different basis weight filters it is possible to obtain a great infusion process for both coffee bags and catering pouches.
