Advantages at a glance
Terracaps® are the first and only true oxygen-tight bio
coffee capsules in the world!
This offers significant advantages, especially in economic terms.
The biocapsules can be produced, packaged and delivered
without additional outer packaging.
As a result of our specially developed bioplastic (Terrablend®),
the capsule achieves a level of oxygen impermeability which
enables us to guarantee a minimum shelf life,
e.g. for coffee, of more than 12 months.
Through the use of our biodegradable seal paper, the Terracaps biocapsule is completely free from aluminium!
This ensures that the biocapsules require no further outer packaging.
The unique, oxygen-tight biocapsule not only enables you to contribute towards
protecting the environment, but to also optimise and reduce your production processes at the same time.
As a result of the sustainable, oxygen-tight biocapsule,
which has no outer packaging, the packaging size is reduced –
allowing you to save not only on space but also on costs.
This means you can save (in contrast to a product with outer packaging):
50% on packaging
50% on warehouse volumes
50% on transport volumes
50% on retail space
70% on protective gas in the packaging
What’s more, your customers will also be impressed with the increased
quality of their product, for example, in the case of tea or coffee.
At Terracaps® we produce your biocapsules exclusively using
energy generated from wind, sun, hydropower and biogas.
This sends out an important and positive message, especially for the consumer.
We are able to conserve resources already at the production stage and make
an important contribution towards environment and climate protection.
The biocapsule material is biodegradable according DIN EN ISO 14855.
Based on the suppliers declaration, the sealing ring of the capsule is compostable and certified in accordance with DIN EN 13432:2000-12.
The Terracaps® biocapsule is since December 2017 certified as OK COMPOST by TÜV Austria/ Vincotte.
We carried out a successful self-test for home composting. The link to the photo series can be found HERE >>
The biocapsule from Terracaps® is made of a bioplastic (Terrablend®),
which has a renewable raw materials content of at least 62%.
The technical additives are also biodegradable and environmentally friendly.
Also in the production process we place particular importance on manufacturing
the biocapsules in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner.
As a result of our international production sites, we are able to manufacture
and fill the biocapsules in the same country.
This not only offers the advantage of ensuring that transport routes are short and
more environmentally friendly, but also that communication channels are clear,
concise and efficient.
The biocapsules from Terracaps® are optimised for all popular
machines from Nespresso®*.
We carry out continuous development work to ensure the sustained and
ongoing improvement of our products.
At Terracaps GmbH we regularly monitor changes to coffee machines on the
market so that we are able to promptly modify the biocapsule where necessary.
