Brits may love their tea, but Transport for London (UK) expects to power one of its buses with biofuel created from waste coffee grounds.
Technology firm bio-bean, which announced its biofuel initiative a few months ago, says it has proeduced enough coffee fuel to power one bus for a year.
The company extracts oil from used coffee grounds. The coffee oil is blended with diesel for use in vehicles. Buses can use the coffee-sourced fuel without modifications.
Bio-bean has produced 6,000 liters of coffee oil to date. “It’s a great example of what can be done when we start to reimagine waste as an untapped resource,” said company founder Arthur Kay. Link to full story in BBC News.
