Tri-national lifecycle analysis

Returnable cups are kinder to the environment.

Returnable cup systems have a far lower impact on the environment than single-use solutions.
Compostable, single-use cups made from renewable raw materials fare no better than standard single-use cups. This was shown in a comparative lifecycle assessment carried out on behalf of the German, Austrian and Swiss environmental ministries for the UEFA EURO 2008 football tournament.

The study provides the latest ecological statistics on the most established returnable and single-use cups available on the market today. With the support of the German environmental ministry and in conjunction with the cities of Basel, Bern, Zurich, Vienna, Klagenfurt, Salzburg and Hanover, the Austrian and Swiss environmental ministries instructed the Austrian Institute of Ecology, the Swiss firm Carbotech AG and the German Institute for Applied Ecology to conduct a comparative lifecycle assessment for various cup systems used to serve beverages. This was carried out within the framework of the sustainability concept of the UEFA EURO 2008 football tournament. The initial results of the cup study were presented to UEFA on November 8th, 2007.

Comparison of materials, disposal, circulation ratios

The study investigated the ecological impact of various cup systems (single-use and returnable). The framework for the study, which took into account quantity, circulation ratios and transportation distances, was provided by the conditions to which UEFA EURO 2008 was subject. Single-use cups made from PET, polystyrene, cardboard, PLA (a biodegradable material based on materials such as corn starch) and the special plastic made by Belland (all of which are disposed of in different ways) were compared with a returnable cup system. Varying circulation ratios were assumed for this cup type in relation to the number of games played and the number of cups taken home as souvenirs.

The key findings of the study:

  • Even from a pessimistic viewpoint, a returnable cup system is significantly kinder to the environment than any single-use system. The best single-use scenario has twice the environmental impact of the least favourable returnable cup system. Thus, using a returnable cup system is definitely the most environmentally sound solution. As with any system that uses refundable deposits, users are motivated to return cups rather than throw them away, thereby minimising litter.
  • The study also serves to confirm the results of other research projects which found that compostable, single-use cups (such as PLA cups) are no more environmentally friendly than single-use cups made from PET.
  • The same is true for single-use cups made from Belland plastic. The environmental impact of these cups is no better than that of single-use PET cups.

CUP CONCEPT Austria goes CUP SOLUTIONS!

So that our company can operate more autonomous in terms of product range expansion and on-site service, we decided to get an independent partner of Cup Concept Germany.

On the one hand we are still exclusive retailer of Cup Concept reusable cups in Austria, while on the other hand we are simultaneously going to expand other business areas. A first step into this direction is the introduction of our new exclusive reusable cup range and the enlargement of our product range with approximately 30.000 pieces of cutlery.

In the course of the takeover our company’s name changed to CUP SOLUTIONS Mehrweg GmbH. As by the transaction 100% of the Cup Concept Mehrwegbechersystem GmbH were adopted by the CUP SOLUTIONS Mehrweg GmbH, all agreements between your company and CUP SOLUTIONS will remain unchanged and upright.

The Environment

Returnable is the responsible choice

Large-scale events such as music festivals and high-profile football games are a major draw for those generations that will shape the future of environmental policy and live with the realities of it. Thus, these events represent an ideal opportunity to use targeted measures to raise environmental awareness among young fans in particular.

In comparison, the returnable cup deposit system realised by CUP SOLUTIONS has proven itself at a variety of events over the years and continues to contribute significantly to the reduction of litter.

A tri-national study conducted as part of the preparations for UEFA Euro 2008™confirmed that the returnable cup system realised by CUP SOLUTIONS is significantly kinder to the environment than any of the currently available single-use systems. more
