Ground Coffee Waste to Bio Fuel – Good ideas are to be applauded

Waste coffee grounds set to fuel London with biodiesel and biomass pellets.

coffee-groundsPaper Cups are so intrinsically involved with coffee culture that anything related to coffee doesn’t escape our paper cups trained eyes, and this development is surely a welcome change to how waste is managed, or rather not just managed, not even recycled, re-purposed is the word.

Sometimes an idea seems so simple that you can’t believe why it was not already in use. Using waste coffee grounds to make biomass pellets and bio diesel occurred to Arthur Kay when he was studying architecture at UCL in 2012. His project was to study closed loop waste-to-energy systems for buildings, and he by chance chose a coffee house to work with. Here he came to know about the oil content in coffee and the sheer amount of waste produced in coffee making, 200,000 tonnes a year in London alone. He launched his company called Bio-bean.

What interested Kay most is the availability of a very pure stream of waste that is not adulterated by other wastes and need very little cleaning before processing, the waste is passed through a processing plant that extracts the oil and the remaining coffee ground is used to manufacture coffee-ground bio-fuel pellets for boilers and stoves.

This is indeed a great move, and most importantly what we liked most is how he explains his efforts as a way to close the sustainable consumption loop. The first step has been a lot talked about and people have concentrated a lot on the Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance movements to ethically source coffee, but once the coffee has been consumed, the chain ends abruptly, people do not bother how the waste is treated, he wants to close the loop by creating a sustainable way of ethically disposing the waste and generating energy in the process too.

Our printed Paper Cups are environment friendly, they are GREEN

When folks think about paper cups, they visualise trees being cut for paper, they typically visualise that old oak in the field, the birds, the squirrels, and even worst, the depleting rainforests, the rising global temperatures.

But the fact is that currently there are managed tree farms, places where trees are grown as a crop for lumbering, these monitered farms keep planting trees similar to how a farmer plants new seeds after that season's harvest. only that in case of those massive trees, this harvesting cycle is usually over twenty years.

The activities of these farms and all that is happening to our forests is monitored by some credible Not for Profit organizations like FSC and PEFC. Organisations that certify and monitor these farms and their method of harvesting and replanting and maintaining the inexperienced cover.

We at scyphus solely obtain our papers for our printed paper cups, only from FSC and PEFC accreditec mills, these mills are accredited by responsible monitoring organisations like FSC and PEFC and thus can be assumed to be following all sustainable forestry practices that help us keep the planet green.

We are green and we urge you to question your Paper Cups
company that whether they obtain their raw material from
licensed mills only or not.
Think before ordering your Paper Cups

So ask the paper cups manufacturer company you have determined to place the order with, if they manufacture their cups within the UK, don't choose low-cost paper cups imported and delivered straight from some bulk paper cups shop somewhere in China.

Before you place the order for your Paper Cups, tailor-made to augment brand visibility, check if its the best quality out there.
