Clean energy from coffee waste.

Globally, people drink more than 2 Billion cups of coffee per day and this generates a huge amount of coffee waste. Over 500 million cups of coffee are drunk annually in Poland only. EcoBean with Warsaw University of Technology has developed technology for production of coffee briquettes from spent coffee grounds. The startup has recently joined the InnoEnergy ecosystem receiving comprehensive support with financial investment.
