A paper cup is a disposable cup made of paper that is frequently lined or coated with plastic or wax to stop liquid from seeping through the paper or leaking out. It is commonly used all over the world and could be manufactured of recycled paper.
Paper cups are typically made from non-recycled materials to meet sanitary standards. The only exception to this rule is when a single-wall paper cup has a corrugated covering wrapped around it that acts as an additional insulating layer for heat retention and is never in touch with the beverage.
Manufacturers of cups invented the practice of spraying wax on the cup’s interior and exterior. With the development of polyethylene (PE)-coated cups, clay and wax-coated cups were rendered obsolete. Using this technique, a very thin layer of PE is applied to the board’s surface to waterproof it and join its seams.
A programme that was previously in existence but briefly put on hold during the pandemic is being expanded by the international coffee brand Starbucks. Customers can also borrow a cup from a store location and then return it when they are done.
The returned mugs are then cleaned and put to good use. As part of the company’s larger waste reduction goal, they intend to gradually phase out their famous paper cups and replace them with reusable alternatives in the years to come.
The Global PE Foamed Paper Cups Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
