Bio-bean is the world’s first company to industrialise the process of collecting and recycling waste coffee grounds into a range of advanced biofuels and sustainable biochemicals. bio-bean's 50,000T facility in Cambridgeshire has the capacity to recycle the waste from one in 10 cups of coffee in the UK.
bio-bean has built two business models around urban centres and instant coffee factories to capture these concentrated sources of feedstock efficiently. We work with existing waste management companies, like Biffa and Paper Round, to collect feedstock from large producers of coffee waste such as Costa and Network Rail. bio-bean’s service creates value and lowers costs whilst reducing dependence on fossil fuels.
