Flat-pack coffee cup

  • #1
Hi, I am a 2nd year student studying Mechanical Engineering. As part of our design module we are doing a feasibility analysis into a 'disposable Fold-flat cup with an integrated lid' which is to replace existing coffee cups.
I understand their are some patents for similar products which would have an impact on the design but are there any British standards/ safety requirements in place for coffee cups?

I have very little experience in the design/materials/manufacturing of disposable cups so any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Matt
