AirXCoffee successfully launches the World’s First Coffee Bio-Composite that can replace single-use plastic

The new material from AirXcoffee is significant at a time when the COVID-19 epidemic has worsened the world’s pollution problem, building on the success of the world’s first coffee face mask. Disposable items such as surgical masks, plastic cups, and hand sanitizer bottles have contributed to an increase in pollution as a result of the public health problem.

AirXcoffee has succeeded in obtaining coffee grounds for the production of Coffee Bio-Composite, which may be used to replace dinnerware, polystyrene cups, flowerpots, and anything else made of plastic.

In 2011, the Australian government outlawed the use of plastic bags. In a stride towards the city’s new Zero Waste 2040 goal, Vancouver also became the first large city in Canada to prohibit plastic straws, while the European Union adopted a ban on some single-use plastics that will take effect in July 2021.

Coffee bio-composites, which are manufactured from coffee grounds, are being touted as a viable alternative to standard plastics. AirXcoffee has succeeded in obtaining coffee grounds for the production of Coffee Bio-Composite, which may be used to replace dinnerware, polystyrene cups, flowerpots, and anything else made of plastic. In addition, the new material has received TUV AUSTRIA’s three-star OK Bio-based certification, indicating that it has between 60% and 80% bio-based content. TUV Rheinland has also certified the material as food safe.

Coffee grounds from local Vietnamese coffee shops are collected, dried, and blended with recyclable materials, starch, cellulose, wood, natural resins, waxes, and oils to create the substance. The final coffee composite is bio-based, recyclable, light, and has a coffee scent and dark wood appearance.

“The new material outperforms old plastic in terms of price. Coffee bio-composite is intended to help the Vietnamese plastic sector compete more effectively in the global market because it is 10% cheaper than oil-based plastic. It also assists Vietnam in reducing its dependency on fossil fuels “The founder, Thanh Le, outlined the benefits of his innovative substance. “In Vietnam, ground coffee is quite popular. Vietnam, as the world’s second-largest coffee exporter, is the ideal location for us to develop the world’s first coffee bio-composite “Added he.

“Back in 2020, when we started to create a new material, we knew we wanted something that used local materials, was easy to create, and was affordable, with the added benefit of being biodegradable.”

The coffee bio-composite, according to the researchers, is a good alternative to the synthetic polymers now in use. “With billions of throwaway plastics already fouling city streets and potentially entering our rivers and seas,” says Prof. Phu Huynh, Dean of the Faculty of Material, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology.
