Implementation Stories

FluidSolids Biocomposites by FluidSolids AG
Implemented by Pumpstation GmbH in Zurich (Switzerland) in 2022

Pumpstation, a 10-restaurant chain in and around Zurich, launched in Summer 2022 the Wellcompost® single-use cutlery in partnership with FluidSolids, after an 18-month development period. With the aim to replace the existing solutions that are made from bioplastics, wood or paper, it offers a truly sustainable single-use cutlery produced from the food industry’s waste streams in Switzerland. Mass production will start in September 2022 with 50,000 pieces produced per week.
