bio-bean® is an award-winning green energy company that has industrialised the process of recycling waste coffee grounds into Advanced Biofuels. bio-bean works within the existing supply chain to collect and aggregate thousands of tonnes of waste coffee grounds produced by the UK’s offices, transport hubs, coffee shops and coffee factories.
bio-bean is a team of twenty, working from three locations: a Central London HQ, laboratory and world-first 20,000 square foot processing factory.
bio-bean's Advanced Biofuels from waste coffee grounds are first-to-market, there are no current competitors in this space. Coffee biomass pellets and biodiesel from waste coffee grounds are therefore a unique innovation.
Because of the widespread interest in coffee and its avid drinking culture, our innovation will engage the audience. bio-bean's products have been in constant development since the Arthur Kay, bio-bean's founder, had the idea whilst still a student at The Bartlett, UCL.
