London’s caffeine habit could soon provide an eco-friendly energy kick to its buses, including its iconic red double decker. Some six thousand litres of oil extracted from ground coffee waste will be added to fuel tanks of the city’s transport authority on Monday — enough to power a bus for a whole year. / AFP PHOTO / Daniel LEAL-OLIVAS (Photo credit should read DANIEL LEAL-OLIVAS/AFP/Getty Images)

THE TECHNOLOGY company bio-bean has stated that, waste coffee grounds will now be used to help power many of London’s buses.

Bio-bean has collaborated with Shell and Argent Energy to form a new biofuel, which includes coffee oil.

Transport for London (TFL) has progressively turned to applying biofuels to decrease transport emissions.

Biofuel is formed by combining oil from coffee grounds and diesel will now be composed to the fuel accumulation for the London buses. Bio-bean, a company which recycles coffee waste, claimed that it has constructed sufficient coffee oil to supply one bus for a year.

“It is a great example of what can be done when we start to reimagine waste as an untapped resourced,” bio-bean founder Arthur Kay announced.

The bio-bean company noted that the average Londoner drinks 2.3 cups of coffee per day, processing 200,000 tonnes of waste a year. Bio-bean gathers coffee grounds from various institutions whereby, saving 6.8 tonnes of CO2 emission for each tonne recycled.
