Wipf AG has launched the world’s first biocompostible valve. The WICOVALVE® W606E was developed especially for the coffee industry and can be composted according to industrial. Standard EN 13432 in combination with biodegradable laminates.
The WICOVALVE® valve technology has been systematically refined in the past 30 years to attain the highest conceivable quality standards. Thanks to a failure rate of less than 0.01%, comprehensive functionality, and a shelf life of three years, the valves represent the widely accepted benchmark today.
The extensive range of valves has now been ideally complemented with the biocompostible W606E. It is based on the highly popular W606 coffee valve and is designed for heat-sealing. In combination with biocompostible laminate materials, the coffee roaster can now offer a packaging system that is totally biodegradable and provides optimized protection of whole-bean coffee against aroma loss. This world first addresses the growing demand for biopackaging.
