While sipping our daily lattes keeps us all connected and caffeinated, it also leads to a hidden stream of waste: coffee grounds emitting harmful greenhouse gases in landfill and anaerobic digestion, or simply being inefficiently incinerated.
At bio-bean we take these spent coffee grounds and sustainably renew them into a valuable material whilst significantly reducing emissions.
Our simple and efficient coffee recycling service means our clients can save money whilst becoming more sustainable.Learn more
We’ve developed proprietary technology to process and dry wet coffee grounds into a valuable raw material.Learn more
How the process works
The UK drinks 98 million cups of coffee every day
This creates around 250,000 tonnes of wet waste coffee grounds typically bound for landfill
We work with logistics and waste management companies to collect discarded coffee grounds before they get to landfill
The grounds are brought to our facility where they are processed and upcycled for reuse
This results in extracting value that benefits both people and planet in a circular economy
We make solid biomass fuels for both consumers and industry
We extract residual natural compounds from food-grade spent grounds for use in the food and beverage industry
We provide upcycled grounds for a multitude of sustainable products and services
