The city of London is trying to improve the technology and convenience of its public transport. They are working on cutting down emissions from buses and other forms of public travel to make it safer.

This need has led to creation a new source of biofuel from used coffee beans. The process begins with gathering these grounds from various cafes and restaurants that are stored after use. It’s all transported to a facility where they dry the grounds before extracting oil from them. Oil that’s extracted from the coffee is mixed with other fuels like diesel to create a new, usable source that’s less hazardous to the environment.
