These results meet critical international standards required for certification as compostable materials, including American standards ASTM D6400 and D6868, European standard EN 13432, and International standard ISO 17088. The trials also found that NEXE Nespresso Compatible Pods had no negative effects on the quality of the resulting compost.

Zachary Hudson, Chief Scientific Officer at NEXE, commented “These outstanding results demonstrate that our Nespresso-Compatible Pods are ready for certification in both North America and Europe. Years of R&D have led to a sustainable product that does not compromise the taste profile the consumer demands, and that can be composted completely after use.”

NEXE’s pods are among the only patented compostable single-serve beverage pods designed to store more volume of product per capsule than other leading brands. Over 40 billion non-compostable single-serve beverage pods made from traditional plastic are currently discarded annually to landfills around the world.
