From Coffee Grounds to Biofuels

15 November 2015 - // Opinions

Innovative start-ups from around the world are recycling and reusing waste to make new products. By incorporating sustainability into their brands, they can provide eco-friendly products that consumers can buy with a clear conscience.


Each year in the UK, 1.8 million tons of CO2 emissions are generated by 500,000 tons of coffee waste with disposal costing as much as £50 million. Currently, most waste coffee grounds are sent to landfill, incinerated or sent to anaerobic digestion.
