VANCOUVER, BC, Canada – NEXE Innovations Inc., a compostable and innovative materials company, is pleased to announce that the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) has completed its verification process and has confirmed that the NEXE fully compostable, single-use beverage pod and its associated components meet the stringent compostable requirements set out by the BPI Institute.
“We believe that the BPI Certification, combined with the study done with the University of British Columbia and an independent commercial compost study that was completed at the Surrey Biofuel Facility, the first closed-loop organic waste facility in North America, will provide the industry with confidence that NEXE’s compostable products are the ideal green solution to the plastic waste plaguing our environment”, stated Ash Guglani President of NEXE Innovations, “NEXE understands that it is one of the only companies that completed an industrial composting study prior to applying for the BPI Certification”.
The NEXE fully compostable, single-use beverage pod has several key competitive features protected by patents, including an innovative technology that allows for more volume per pod while delivering what the Company believes is an unrivaled “pour-over” coffee experience.
With these distinct advantages, NEXE believes it sets itself apart from the competition and establishes itself as the go-to choice for premium coffee brands seeking a sustainable solution.
The company believes this innovative solution represents a significant milestone for the industry. Replacing single-use plastic and aluminum pods with fully compostable materials has been a daunting challenge, considering the stringent requirements of water resistance, pressure endurance, and heat resilience.
NEXE believes by conquering this complexity, it has acquired invaluable insights that will empower the Company to swiftly develop and introduce new, groundbreaking products to the market.
“NEXE has gone through a significant transition. We have improved the performance of the single-use pod, which can go head-to-head with the plastic alternative, and have brought our manufacturing capabilities in-house,” stated Ash Guglani, President of NEXE Innovations, “NEXE’s goal is to provide a fully compostable, single-use pod option to customers without compromising on performance and price.”
