Bringing coffee waste to life


Revive aims to eradicate the traditional ‘take, make, dispose’ way of thinking by converting used coffee grounds into environmentally-friendly products. Founded in 2015 by Scott Kennedy and Fergus Moore, Revive offers a waste collection service which diverts coffee grounds from landfill, and processes them to extract maximum value from the material. Revive converts the coffee grounds into natural oils which have uses in a range of industries including cosmetics, food & drink and pharmaceuticals. From the residual material, we create a natural soil conditioner, ensuring our process is completely zero waste.

Creating a circular economy in the coffee industry

Every year, over 500,000 tonnes of coffee grounds are generated in the UK, of which 90% are sent to landfill or incinerated. The natural oils held within the coffee grounds have a range of uses and contain key components that make up palm oil, meaning Revive has the potential to disrupt global industries and offer them sustainable alternatives to the materials they currently use. Revive collects coffee grounds from across the country and processes them at their facility before the outputs are sold into various industries.
