Scotland-based circular company Revive-Eco has introduced an innovative method to extract oil from used coffee grounds.


This oil has similar properties to palm oil and therefore could act as a replacement in many of our household products.

The hospitality industry creates a huge amount of food waste. About 60% of a cafe’s waste is from coffee grounds, and so making oil can transform it into a resource and source of revenue.
