Coffee power

Keep in touch with the fast-moving world of technology innovation in insurance via InsTech London. #insurtech

The London Insurance Market was built around our love of coffee and over the last few years many insurance practitioners have been swapping pints for flat whites when they need to get together to talk business.

London’s coffee industry creates over 200,000 tonnes of waste every year and bio-bean is turning 85% of the coffee waste into biofuels for heating buildings and powering transport.

The main market for the fuel is London’s transport system — the prospect of a “Bio-bean bus” is not far-fetched given some London buses already run on biodiesel. Major coffee companies and high street chains have expressed interest — fuelling their fleets or factories with waste coffee would be a major PR bonus.
