Recycle process of coffee ground

What comes after the coffee ground?

Have you ever wondered about what happens to the vast amount of coffee grounds after we drink coffee every day? Is there any use for it? Or do we just put it into landfills? According to statistics, Taiwan’s population of 23 million alone consumes about 6 million cups of coffee a day, producing roughly 30 tons of coffee grounds. The 1 billion coffee connoisseurs around the world drink approximately 1.6 billion cups of coffee a day with the coffee-drinking population increasing at a growth rate of more than 4.5x annually.

With this staggering statistic, we have to reconsider the functions and benefits of coffee grounds instead of being discarded waste. Singtex invested four years of research and development and after eight long series of testing have developed “S.Café® sustainable coffee yarn” putting coffee grounds into functional textiles. 500 kilograms of coffee ground a day are kept from being wasted and reapplying the material into textiles, Singtex is continuously implementing three environmental fundamentals: Recycle, Reduce, and Reuse.
