There’s more to coffee than just providing a boost for the heavy-eyed employee. There’s energy in it for, well, everything else too.
Each tonne of waste coffee grounds creates about 5,700 kilowatt hours of energy. Get through 700 tonnes of coffee and you've got enough to power 1000 homes for a year!
We take waste coffee grounds to the world’s first specialist facility that turns waste coffee grounds into advanced bio-fuel and bio-chemicals.
bio-bean's factory is based inside a former plane hangar, so it’s well placed to take on and process 50,000 tonnes of waste coffee. That's a tenth of what the UK produces every year.
This means more waste is diverted from landfill to produce carbon neutral bio fuels which'll reduce greenhouse emissions. That’s a heck of an eco-domino effect!
