Beginning Monday, Bio-Bean, a company that recycles waste coffee grounds into advanced biofuels and biochemical will be using coffee as source to fuel the buses of London, it has been revealed.
According to a BBC report, the company has partnered with Shell and fuel blender Argent energy to help create thousands of liters of the first ever coffee-derived source of biodiesel.
The report says that Bio-bean is helping the transport for London (TFL) use coffee as an alternative clean source of fuel to help reduce emissions in the city. According to Bio-Bean, it will take 2.55 million cups of coffee to fuel just one bus for an entire year.
Bio-Bean’s goals are to prove that recycling coffee grounds waste into a reliable source of fuel can contribute to playing a key role in the future of transportation systems.
The company believes it would take just over 2.55 million cups of coffee to create the enough biofuel to run a London bus for a year after the oil has been blended with diesel.
