Pectcof

Sustainability of the coffee production chain is a problem underestimated by the industry nowadays. The coffee production becomes more and more industrialised, leaving more coffee waste than ever on the planet. This creates opportunities, because treatment of the agro-industry waste streams becomes of utter importance.

Pectcof technology is the first step to industrial applications for coffee cherry biomass, it involves production of bio based materials using green chemistry and biotechnology. Pectcof technology will make the coffee industry more sustainable through the industrial use of the coffee waste streams.
