Georgia-Pacific Awards Major Contract to Cereplast


Cereplast to Supply Bio-Plastic Resin for New Dixie® EcoSmart® Product Line

HAWTHORNE, CA, May 18, 2009 - Cereplast, Inc. (OTCBB: CERP), a leading manufacturer of proprietary bio-based, sustainable plastics, today announced that it will supply Compostables® resin to Georgia-Pacific Professional Food Services Solutions for the manufacture of its recently introduced line of Dixie EcoSmart beverage solutions.

Dixie EcoSmart products include Cereplast Compostables resin-lined paper hot cups made from at least 95 percent renewable resources and the Insulair® line of insulated cups, available in 12 and 25 percent post-consumer recycled fiber. EcoSmart products are designed to allow operators to enhance their environmental stewardship position. The resin was especially designed and developed in-house by the Cereplast R&D team for the ECOSMART® cup using INGEO® PLA from NatureWorks®.

All Dixie EcoSmart products can be processed successfully in commercial composting operations. The Cereplast Compostables resin-lined paper hot cups are 100 percent compostable because the fiber portion and the coating are fully compostable.

“This is a tremendous step forward in the approach we take to responsible manufacturing,” said John Mulcahy, vice president – category, Georgia-Pacific Professional Food Services Solutions. “The EcoSmart line represents some of the most groundbreaking products available to operators and is just one example of our dedication to providing sustainable solutions that create a positive impact on the world around us.”

“The Georgia-Pacific award is the largest contract in the history of Cereplast and represents our most important commercial achievement to date,” said Frederic Scheer, Chairman and CEO of Cereplast. “We are grateful for this opportunity to supply one of the world’s leading manufacturers with our bio-plastic resin. We applaud the introduction of this new product line that demonstrates Georgia-Pacific’s commitment to innovative products that support sustainability goals.”
