CGL

Coffee Grounds Laminate

To demonstrate circularity and setting an example for innovative composite materials, ecobrain AG has developed a laminate board made out of up-cycled coffee grounds.

Our environmentally friendly Coffee Grounds Laminate boards are manufactured by using a next-generation water based acrylate, also available in renewable feedstock variant.

The ecobrain CGL-s can be made available in a range of decorative designs and textures, tailored for your carbon negative store to improve your brand’s environmental footprint.

How it works

URBAN & INDUSTRIAL
HARVESTING

The total coffee beans production is about 8 Mio metric tons annually. In almost every case the resulting coffee ground is incinerated causing carbon dioxide emission. We at ecobrain are using industrial and urban harvesting methods to collect this valuable material.

REMANUFACTURING

We are converting in an industry scale the recycled waste into our patented Laminate Board. Our environmentally friendly Coffee Grounds Laminate is made out of up-cycled coffee grounds and manufactured by using a next-generation water based acrylate.

SECOND LIFE

The ecobrain Coffee Grounds Laminate is available in a range of decorative designs and textures, tailored for your carbon negative store, coffee shop to improve your brand’s environmental footprint. Our CGL boards are suitable for standard furniture and interior design applications.
