1 Independent Claims

  • Claim 2. The composite of claim 1, wherein the absorbent layer comprises at least one of bi-component micro-fibers, biodegradable fibers, or cellulosic fibers.
  • Claim 3. The composite of claim 1, wherein the non-absorbent layer comprises a malleable polymer having at least one oleophobic surface.
  • Claim 5. The composite of claim 1, wherein the composite paper material is compostable.
  • Claim 6. The composite of claim 1, wherein the composite paper material disintegrates at least 90% in eighty-four days or more.
  • Claim 8. The composite of claim 1, wherein liquids absorbed by the composite paper material include at least one of water, oil, grease, trans fats, cholesterol, or fatty acid residues.
  • Claim 9. The composite of claim 1, wherein the paper surface is rounded to fit the shape of a circular pizza.
  • Claim 10. The composite of claim 1, wherein the paper surface is rectangular to fit the shape of a rectangular pizza box assembly.
  • Claim 11. A pizza box assembly comprising: a collapsible rectangular box composed of cardboard, the rectangular box having an inner cavity for holding pizzaa liner disposed in the inner cavity, the liner for absorbing excess fluids from pizza inserted into the box, the liner dimensioned to fit inside the pizza box assembly, the liner further dimensioned to cover an entire bottom surface of the pizza box assembly, the liner comprising: a composite material having compostable, non-toxic absorbent and non-absorbent layersthe absorbent layer comprising one or more layers of biodegradable paper fibers, the outer layer of fibers having a textured surface comprising bi-component micro-fibers, the absorbent layer for absorbing oil and grease from an underside of a pizza opposite toppings and cheeseand the non-absorbent layer applied to the back of the absorbent layer by film lamination, the non-absorbent layer comprising one or more layers of polymeric film, the non-absorbent layer for trapping liquids in the absorbent layer so that the liquids do not bleed through the non-absorbent layerthe composite material for absorbing excess liquids from pizza when contacting at least one surface of the pizza with the absorbent layer, the composite paper material further for making the pizza box assembly recyclable by preventing grease absorbed from a pizza placed inside the pizza box assembly from contacting any surface of the pizza box assembly.
  • Claim 19. A food packaging pouch comprising: a sealable, rectangular receptacle having an inner cavity for disposing take out food, the receptacle composed of a compostable, non-toxic composite material, the composite material comprising: an absorbent layer comprised of one or more layers of biodegradable paper fibers, the outer layer of fibers having a textured surface comprising bi-component micro-fibers, the absorbent layer for absorbing oil and grease from at least one surface of take out foodand a non-absorbent layer applied to the back of the absorbent layer by film lamination, the non-absorbent layer comprising one or more layers of polymeric film, the non-absorbent layer for trapping liquids in the absorbent layer so that the liquids do not bleed through the non-absorbent layerthe composite material for absorbing excess liquids from take out food when contacting at least one surface of take out food with the absorbent layer, the composite paper material further for making the food packaging pouch recyclable by preventing grease absorbed from a surface of take out food placed inside the food packaging pouch from contacting any surface of the pouch.
