A new compound developed from coffee grounds

Eixbio compound with coffee news

In collaboration with SW Développement, (a major actor in the sector of recovery and reuse of coffee-derived co-products), Elixbio has developed a new biomaterial that is bio-sourced, biodegradable and exempt of GMOs, incorporating a high level of coffee grounds. This biomaterial retains the technical characteristics that are necessary for injection applications and soon also for extruded films.

Besides bringing particular properties to the finished product, this compound also gives new life to organic waste. Once degraded, the natural properties of coffee grounds can be used to fertilise the soil.
