How does the disposal of Iperespresso capsules work?
The material of which our Iperespresso capsules are made is polypropylene, which, thanks to its technological performance, resists the pressure generated by the capsule, necessary to guarantee an excellent result in the cup. Disposal of the capsule in different countries is linked to local waste management legislation. In fact, it is possible to recycle the plastic, separating it from the organic matter and transferring the two materials to the appropriate separate collection, or to waste-to-energy the entire capsule, as polypropylene develops those high temperatures that allow waste to be burned by developing electricity, without producing dioxins.
