Coffee is part of the daily routine for the majority of people on our planet, be it at work or at play. The wonderful aroma and flavour of this special beverage are immensely pleasurable and yet behind this unique experience thousands of tonnes of used coffee grounds and capsules are generated and with huge potential value. At Cafuego we have realised such potential from these residues through their conversion into high value bioproducts.
At Cafuego we support an economy efficient in its use of resources and with low carbon emissions by using renewable energies.
Our products, our services and our processes all have the same objective: sustainability.
We take care of the environment.
We are committed to ongoing technological development and convinced of the importance of investigation as a means to improve and advance.
Our quality is the result of our commitment to our customers, employees and shareholders and to society in general.
Used coffee grounds have a high calorific value, almost 25,000 kilojoules per kilo. At Cafuego we have harnessed these properties, converting the grounds into high quality pellets or briquettes.
At Cafuego we are innovators, constantly in search of new ways in which to use resources efficiently and achieve our environmental objectives.
We consider recycling to be much more than simply converting used coffee grounds and capsules into new materials and biofuels. Our products and processes have been designed so as to create a circular economy by way of collaboration with producers, consumers and global communities.
We seek synergies between industries and our products become a source of raw material for others. We use 100% renewable electric and thermal energy from an adjacent biogas industry.
Recycling and revaluation of ash content in biomass fuels with a high content of phosphorous and other nutrients for their subsequent incorporation as a basis for organomineral fertilisers.
Our commitment to an environmentally and socially responsible production methodology.
