For the first time starting today, waste coffee grounds will be used to help power some of London‘s buses.
That much was revealed after technology firm bio-bean says it has produced enough coffee oil to power one bus for a year using a biofuel created by blending oil extracted from coffee waste mixed with diesel.
“It’s a great example of what can be done when we start to re-imagine waste as an untapped resource,” bio-bean founder Arthur Kay said.
The company believes it will take up to 2.55 million cups of coffee to create enough biofuel to run a London bus for a year once the oil has been blended with diesel.
It is the first time a coffee-derived biofuel will be used on London’s public transport system with Transport for London (TfL) has increasingly turned to using biofuels to reduce transport emissions.
