We are the world’s largest recycler of coffee grounds.

We recycle spent coffee grounds into a broad spectrum of efficient, sustainable products for a range of markets, both consumer and industrial.


The UK consumes 95 million cups of coffee every day, creating hundreds of thousands of tonnes of spent coffee grounds every year. Much of this discarded resource ends up in landfill emitting harmful greenhouse gases, including methane.

We work with the biggest companies in the UK to transform these spent coffee grounds into value at an industrial scale, giving new life to a material previously considered waste.
