Clinical trials using the AFM13 molecule have shown this to be a very promising approach with a favourable safety profile thus far.

In Germany alone, around three billion disposable coffee capsules made of aluminium and plastic are sold every year. This creates a gigantic waste problem, as only a small proportion of the capsules can be recycled. Fully compostable wooden coffee capsules that are compatible with all standard Nespresso® machines might be a solution to this problem. The capsules have been developed by a start-up company called rezemo, which also has other biobased packaging solutions in the pipeline.
