What is a recyclable paper cup? Aren’t all paper cups recyclable?
All ordinary paper cups have a plastic lining. A plastic film is laminated to the paper. Since
paper and plastic film are non-homogeneous materials it cannot be recycled together, the
plastic film has to be separated from the laminated paper in-order to recycle it. That is
practically a very difficult process, hence ordinary paper cups are termed as non-recyclable. Bio
cups doesn't contain any type of films and hence are easily recyclable

How can I check if the cup that I am holding is indeed a Bio Cup?
You could check the Authenticity of the Bio cup by performing 3 simple tests
1. Fume Test
2. Acid Test
3. Water Test
Or you could do a practical biodegradability test
Just light up the cup and smell the fumes, if you get a woody smell or the smell of a burning
paper you have bio cup with you. Or if you get that plastic burning smell you have LDPE lined
Just immerse the cup for 72 hours and carefully try to pull of the film from the laminate, if
you don’t find the plastic laminate then you have a bio cup.

compostable. Check the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2N9jwjDQ24&feature=youtu.be
