Details

Tittle:
Romanian company with main activity of selling coffee in vending system is looking for a technology to recycle the coffee residue resulting from coffee
Summary:
A Romanian private owned company is looking for an innovative technology to recycle the coffee residue resulting from the preparation of coffee and turn it into different products for the food industry, organic agriculture or any other field, based on a research/technical cooperation agreement or a commercial agreement with technical assistance. The company main activity is selling coffee in vending system machines.
Description:
The private owned Romanian company has as main activity the sale of coffee drinks in vending system machines. The vending machine uses ground coffee for coffee drinks preparations. As result of production of hot drinks from ground coffee, residue is created in an amount of more than one ton per month, which could be reused/recycled. This reveals that it is a significant amount of coffee residue that can be collected, recycled and transformed in raw materials to be used for other purposes in different sectors.

After an experience of more than 10 years in this area, the company became one of the leading operators from the vending coffee market.

The residue of ground coffee (coffee grounds) has a high content of chlorogenic acid, being an excellent antioxidant with multiple uses.

They are interested to identify a suitable technology for processing this waste and turn it into products for the food industry, organic agriculture or any other field. The technology can be patented or experimental and the envisaged cooperation types could be a research/technical cooperation agreement or a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
Preliminary analyses of coffee grounds revealed the existence of active ingredients with antioxidant properties of extracts obtained therefrom. The major compound is chlorogenic acid, with antioxidant properties on human body, plants and animals. The desired final products should be based on chlorogenic acid, as main ingredient. An example of a compatible product could be a bio fertilizer for plants, which functions as a bio insecticide for crops, the advantage being a superficial method for processing of the raw material.
Another compatible area could be the extraction and recovery of chlorogenic acid which can be used for chemical, food or pharmaceutical industries.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The company is looking for a research institute that has already a solution to this issue or is interested to start researching a new solution.
They are also interested to collaborate with other companies that are facing same problem.
