The ecologic added value of our coffee capsules

55

less CO2 emissions compared to aluminium capsules

In collaboration with worldwatchers.org we have succeeded in making a first independent statement about the CO2 pollution caused by the rezemo coffee capsule. The result, taking into account all relevant production steps of the various components as well as all logistics steps, is clear: With the rezemo capsule, at least 55% of CO2 emissions can be saved compared to an aluminium capsule.

26

less CO2 emissions compared to fossil plastic capsules

Compared to a petrochemically produced plastic capsule, at least 26% ofCO2 emissions are saved. TheCO2 emissions for the disposal of plastic capsules are not yet included in this value. Since plastic capsules rarely end up in the yellow bag when emptyis the Recycling rate small and the majority will be banished. If these emissions are also taken into account, a much higher value can be assumed.

Green electricity for rezemo production in Baden-Württemberg

As rezemo GmbH we use for our production to 100% green electricity from renewable energies. In doing so, we obtain our electricity demonstrably from hydroelectric power plants in the Alpine region with the legally prescribed environmental standards. We thus set the highest standards in terms of environmental protection and actively contribute to the energy turnaround.

A NATURAL CIRCULATION

CREATED BY THE REZEMO COFFEE CAPSULE

Since we only have renewable resources which originate from the cycle of nature, no harmful substances can be released into the environment during subsequent disposal. In doing so, we create a natural cycle that ensuresCO2 neutrality from the creation of value to recycling and returns nature its resources.

1. natural material wood

Wood is a great raw material - available in abundance in this country and therefore does not have to be imported. In our forests sustainably managedwe'll never run out. For our coffee capsule we use softwood from south german forests. When sawmills produce construction and furniture wood, large quantities of sawdust and wood shavings are produced. We at rezemo use this residual product in a natural form as raw material for our coffee capsules. We don't have to process them chemically, we don't have to cut down trees and we create an additional value-added stage for this great natural material.

2. binding agent made from plant starch

Of course, we do not carve our coffee capsules from the solid - that would cause considerable waste. That is why the wood fibres must be held together with a binding agent. For this we use PLA, a bioplasticswhich is produced from natural plant starch. This vegetable starch is obtained from corn and sugar beet. Our PLA is tested for compostability. However, since the wood content of the capsule is predominant, it decomposes faster than conventional bioplastic packaging.

3. environmentally friendly production

The wood fibres can now be combined with the PLA by so-called Injection moulding be brought into shape. The material is processed by heat and high pressure. Through injection moulding we can completely avoid the formation of production residues. It is important to us that the production of the coffee capsules is also environmentally friendly. Therefore we pay attention to short distances and produce our entire product in Germany. For this we use exclusively Green electricity from hydropower plants in the Alpine region. 

4. 100% bio-based

This results in the innovative rezemo coffee capsulewhich is certified by DIN CERTCO in the top category with the test result "100% bio-based" (test number 8C150). This makes us the supplier for sustainable coffee capsules. Our sustainable coffee capsules are aroma-tight and our outer carton contains neither aluminium nor plastic. Furthermore, we ship all our products climate-neutrally with DHL GoGreen.

5. return to nature

After use, our coffee capsules can be completely returned to nature. Due to 100% renewable and biodegradable raw materials, there is technically Disposal via the bio bin or your compost nothing stands in the way. Here, the coffee capsules and their contents serve as degradable structural material. In addition, the coffee grounds have a positive effect on the nutrient content of the compost. Alternatively, our coffee capsules can be thermally recycled, for example by disposing of them in the residual waste. As the material consists entirely of renewable raw materials, the incineration process isCO2-neutral and also provides electrical energy through conversion in the associated power stations.

This is what coffee enjoyment looks like without a guilty conscience and the cycle can start all over again.
