New Product Launch | Coffee Logs

New Product Launch | Coffee Logs


bio-bean® has launched its second advanced biofuel product – Coffee Logs.

bio-bean is offering pre-orders of Coffee Logs (and awesome coffee and sustainability rewards!) here:

bio-­bean works with coffee shops, office blocks, transport hubs, instant coffee factories, roasteries and waste management companies from all over the UK to collect tens of thousands of tonnes of waste coffee grounds and recycle them into a range of innovative biofuel products. bio­-bean’s world­-first coffee waste factory in Cambridgeshire is capable of recycling 1 in 10 cups of coffee drunk in the UK.

Coffee Logs are biomass briquettes derived from waste coffee grounds. These innovative biofuels have been designed, developed and manufactured by bio­-bean in the UK. They are a clean, cheap, local and sustainable alternative to dirty, imported fuels ­ often burning hotter and for longer than conventional fuels. They can be used in a wide range of different appliances such as wood burning stoves, chimeneas, BBQs, pizza ovens, smokers or just on an open fire.

bio-­bean’s Founder and CEO, Arthur Kay, said: “For a lot of people coffee is what powers them through the day. Now, we want to get our buildings and BBQs fuelled sustainably. Starting at home, bio­-bean Coffee Logs allow everyone to do that ­ your morning cup of coffee can heat your home, power your stove and even your BBQ.”

bio-­bean has been supported by chef and food waste campaigner Hugh Fearnley-­Whittingstall who declared the company “a sustainable approach to a major food waste issue” with further support from design guru Kevin McCloud: “My Green Hero! Power your home with coffee ­fuel from bio-­bean”.
