In the project »InKa« researchers of Fraunhofer UMSICHT develop together with partners recycling opportunities of industrial spent coffee grounds. In order to achieve this, the coffee ground is proceeded to high-quality intermediates in a first step, from which then additives for plastics and various sorts of paper can be created. Several recyclable materials like glycerine, fatty acids, polysaccharides, aromatics and diverse minerals can be developed from the spent coffee grounds. The new resource saving process makes an important contribution to the utilization of bio-based raw materials within the rage of bioeconomy
