Plastic Waste from Coffee Capsules

Specific Objectives

It is intended to recycle the largest number of coffee capsules in Portugal with the valorisation of the coffee grounds, triggering a use for the purpose of liquid biofertilizer and, on the other hand, the regeneration of plastic that will produce recycled raw material that will be incorporated into new non-food products.

This process will alow for reduced consumption of virgin raw material (of fossil origin), creating upcycling in home/habitat segment, aiming to engage the consumer as an active member in the recycling of coffee capsules.

Processes, Products or Services
  • Coffee capsules more ecological, recyclable and with less contaminants;
  • Non-food products from home/habitat segment;
  • Liquid Biofertilizer.
