WinCup to produce biodegradable straws made from Danimer Scientific’s Nodax™ PHA Resin

WinCup will be the first company in the U.S. to produce PHA based straws that perform and feel like traditional plastic straws but will be soil and marine biodegradable

WinCup, a leading manufacturer of disposable foodservice to-go ware, is launching phade™, a new line of straws and stirrers made from Danimer Scientific’s Nodax™ PHA (polyhydroxyalkanoate). Nodax™ PHA is derived from canola oil and is a marine biodegradable, soil biodegradable, and home compostable material. WinCup is the first manufacturer in the U.S. to successfully produce commercially sellable straws from this unique material. Plans for a national rollout of this innovative new straw are underway and product will be available later this year. Increased consumer demand for more soil and ocean-friendly disposable products spurred the company’s exploration into a viable solution.
