No! The coffee capsule does not contain PLA compared to many other supposedly compostable capsules. PLA is still only industrially compostable. This means that composting requires at least 60°C over a period of several weeks. However, these temperatures do not occur in the soil. There is an extremely high risk that PLA will only be “decomposed” rather than “metabolicated.” Therefore, PLA can be expected to produce microplastics, which remain in the ground for many decades.
