BioBean turns spent coffee grounds to biofuel


In the United Kingdom, BioBean is working with waste management companies to collect used coffee grounds from over 1,500 small coffee shops and others to convert them into biofuel in either a log or briquette format that can be used in fireplaces, stoves or furnaces, or a biomass pellet for industrial and large scale use in heating buildings.

BioBean recently participated in Kevin McCloud’s Grand Designs Live in London and exhibited at sustainability expo edie Live in the NEC, Birmingham. Their coffee logs were selected by Kevin McCloud as one of his Green Heroes – some of the best environmental homeware products on the market. BioBean also recently exhibited at edie Live, a two-day expo bringing environment, resources and energy professionals together to share ideas on achieving a sustainable future.
