Here at Climpson & Sons we are passionate about coffee, but we also understand the impact our industry can have on the environment. We are always looking at ways we can help minimise our waste footprint and implement as many sustainable work practices as possible.
We are extremely excited to announce our involvement with Bio-Bean! Bio-Bean is a pioneering clean technology company -and first in the world- to industrialise the process of recycling waste coffee grounds into advanced bio fuels and bio chemicals.
It’s amazing to think that in the UK alone we drink 70 million coffees every day that equals to half a million tonnes of waste every year! Most coffee waste makes its way to landfill along with creating millions of tonnes of CO2 emissions, but thanks to bio-bean and their first ever coffee waste recycling factory they are able to recycle these coffee grounds providing a source of local sustainable energy.
At Climpson & Sons we can create up to 200kgs of ground coffee waste every week between our Cafe, Roastery at Climpson’s Arch and coffee cart at Broadway Market on Saturdays. So we are delighted to know that the waste that is created will be manufactured into carbon neutral, advanced bio fuels, which will be used to heat buildings and displace fossil fuels and get cities powered by coffee! Climpson & Sons share Bio-beans view that we can use waste as a valuable resource and turn the challenges that we face within our environment into opportunities and provide vital energy security and sustainability for the future.
We love that Bio-bean have created the opportunity for cities, not just humans, to be powered by coffee and look forward to being a part of the journey of creating a more sustainable environment and future.
