     The UK has a serious coffee habit, consuming about 55 million cups a day. This produces 500,000 tonnes of used coffee every year, most of which end up in landfill. Bio-bean works with waste management companies to collect these grounds from around the UK. They are taken to bio-bean's coffee recycling factory in Alconbury, Cambridgeshire, where they are converted into carbon neutral biofuels: biomass pellets for industrial use, and Coffee Logs for stoves. And it doesn't stop there... bio-bean continues to research and develop other uses for waste coffee.

    2

    Every 1.5 tonnes of waste coffee grounds recycled into Coffee Logs can save a tonne of coal from being burned.

    3

    Generates 80% less emission than letting them break down in landfill, and 70% less than sending them to anaerobic digestion with food waste.

    4

    Make significant saving by diverting heavy wet coffee grounds from your general waste bins.
