Coffee Tech Using Grounds

A good cup of joe has a lifecycle with the end result being its grounds.  The love of coffee produces grounds per cup that is recycled for another solution.  The recycling of “Coffee Grounds Converted to Biomass Pellets” is on the latest conversion of the good coffee bean.

The news is out of London, “Bio-bean, plans recycle waste coffee grounds and converting them into biofuels. The Guardian reports that architecture student Arthur Kay was looking at closed loop waste-to-energy systems for buildings. When he chose a coffee shop he realized the oil content in coffee and the amount of waste produced, 200,000 metric tons a year in London, he set about forming Bio-bean. The technology Bio-bean uses is straightforward. Coffee grounds are dried, a patented biochemical process extract oil and the remaining material is then turned into bio-mass pellets used to be burned in boilers.”

Coffee tech is a reality. Consider, the recycling of every material could produce a sustainable solution reducing trash to landfills and emissions.

It is note worthy to consider the work of other organizations such as, ” Starbucks, Nestle and the University of Cincinnati are already turning spent coffee grounds into bioplastics, laundry detergents and biodiesel. Starbucks, for example, purchases around 400 million pounds of coffee a year and is working on turning the used grounds, along with its bakery waste, into laundry detergents, bioplastics and other products.
