British company, bio-bean, recycles coffee grounds into biofuels. Containing the grounds from 25 cups of coffee each, the grounds are transformed into “coffee logs” to be used in wood-burning and multi-fuel stoves. As of September 2020, bio-bean had recycled over 20,000 tons of used coffee grounds, partnering with national coffee chains and the coffee providers at London Stansted airport. Eighty percent of CO2 emissions are avoided by recycling coffee grounds rather than sending them to landfills. Our daily consumption patterns contribute to waste, but companies like Bio-bean can help us recycle and reduce our impact.
