CIRCULAR COFFEE + BIOTECH = HEALTHIER LIFE
Less than 5% of coffee’s beneficial compounds are extracted when you make a cup of coffee. Meanwhile, 95% of valuable ingredients such as free fatty acids (omega-6, omega-9), vitamins E, D usually are wasted
EXTRPRIZE team is developing the solution not only preventing CO2 emissions but unlocking the full potential of spent coffee.
With modern cryogenic extraction technologies we can reveal all useful components on a molecular level, we have extracted them at a lab scale and know that they are there
We upcycle 100% of spent coffee into coffee extract and fat-free, protein-rich flour, converting the problem of polluting wastes into benefits of valuable products redirected into the economy
It is expected to establish Ukraine’s 1st Circular Coffee Biorefinery, where we aim to process 30 tonnes of coffee grounds per month from selected corporate partners
