Bio-bean launches coffee logs to heat London homes

by | Oct 26, 2016 | News, Products | 0 comments

Londoners feeling the chill as winter draws in will now be able to warm their homes using recycled coffee, following the launch of coffee recycler Bio-bean ‘Coffee Logs’ product in the capital.

Bio-bean collects waste coffee grounds from shops, companies and factories across the country and recycles them into coffee logs which can be burnt in open fires, solid fuel stoves, and chimineas.

The Cambridgeshire-based start-up, which earlier this year successfully raised more than ?58,000 via a crowdfunding campaign to fund the commercial production of its coffee logs, claims its product burns hotter, longer and more cleanly than wood alternatives.

Previously the resulting logs were mainly used in industrial boilers in large buildings, but following a launch event late last week the logs are now available for consumers to buy.

“Bio-bean has been recycling waste coffee grounds into high-performance renewable energy products for several years now,” Bio-bean founder Arthur Kay said in a statement: “With winter just around the corner, households are starting to think about getting the heating back on but don’t want it to cost the earth. Coffee Logs are a great way of saving money and helping save the planet: our mission with bio-bean is to make the sustainable choice the logical choice.”

The logs are available to be stocked at garden centres, garages and DIY stores across the capital, with an RRP of ?16 for a bag of six.
