Which input provides your business model/core technology towards a bio-based economy?
We are converting the waste of the most popular and wasteful yet magical plant on earth: coffee. By upcycling this waste into different high quality, cost competitive active ingredients, we are accelerating the transition to a more biobased and healthier society.
Which market/clients do you address and which short-term/long-term goals do you have?
Cosmetic, Nutraceutical, and Food Manufacturers. Short term is establish Scandinavia 1st Coffee Biorefinery, in the long term, through joint ventures we hope to establish more biorefinieries in the US, Europe and Asia.
What makes your approach unique compared to other stakeholders in the field?
We are the 1st company, to create a fully circular economy around coffee. We are also the 1st company in the world to focus on exploiting coffee waste as an unusual but sustainable health elixir and finally break the myth that coffee is bad for you health (Its the oppposite!) meanwhile helping coffee farmers back in Colombia, in these though times for the industry due to record low cofffee prices and global warming.
Currently other companies recycling coffee waste focus more on fertilizers, biofuels, or pellets.
