PLA Cups


PLA Cups

PLA (polylactic acid) is derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch, sugar cane, or other biomaterials. The name PLA is misleading because chemically, it is not an acid, but rather a polyester. It is produced from lactic acid by a polymerization reaction.

PLA can be recycled back into lactic acid which can be used again to produce new PLA polymer of the same quality as the original material. PLA is biodegradable and decomposes into water and carbon dioxide, which may take several months in a controlled composting environment. This process requires relatively high temperatures, humidity, and the presence of microorganisms. If PLA is incinerated, no toxic substances are released.

Most PLA food packaging products are meant for cold food and beverages, because the material can typically withstand temperatures up to 50-60°C only. More recently developed polymers are heat-resistant up to 110°C.
