WinCup Manufacturing: Reduces, Re-Uses, & Recycles

WinCup’s environmental plan extends beyond the products we create. Here’s a glimpse of some of the initiatives we’ve instituted to achieve our environmental sustainability goals:

WinCup Reduces

  • Energy consumed in steam production through increased boiler maintenance
  • Water consumed through evaporation by using a closed loop cooling tower
  • Natural Gas used in steam generation through the use of heat recovery systems
  • Water, chemical and gas usage via automated blow-down systems
  • Electricity usage through low pressure air and lighting systems

WinCup Reuses

  • Corrugated packing cases
  • Super sacks for EPS beads
  • Wooden Pallets
  • Packing Dunnage
    (plastic/paper wraps)

WinCup Recycles

  • Expanded Polystyrene scrap via foam peanut makers
  • High impact lid scrap internally
  • Hydraulic and lubricating oil.
  • Scrap foam into “upcycled” products

At WinCup, the environment is always on our mind!

*Vio cups have been shown to biodegrade 84.3% after 1154 days under conditions that simulate a wetter, biologically active landfill, using the ASTM D5511-11 test. Note that stated rate and extent of degradation do not mean the product will continue to decompose.
