    don’t tell me how good this is.
    tell me where to collect.

    i had been collecting coffee waste for years and i had listen to this bio-fuel thing for ages also.

    Appreciate your POV, OING. But this is cutting-edge stuff, not quite ready for anyone to take advantage of. Soon, maybe, but not yet.

    Until then, why not try composting? Either for yourself, or set up a community compost area. All of our coffee grounds go into a worm farm in our garage, where they become wonderful fertilizer.

    sorry i didnt’ tell you i am in HK, that not much land can do vegitation, not even mention fertilizer….

    at the moment i turn my coffee waste grounds into body scrub by adding grape-seed-oil and salt, as gift to my friends…

    still feeling too luxury as a guilt….

    still, i am really looking forward to this bio-fuel thing…. :P

    ahhh right~! you did mention this university of nevada is handling the research~ may be we should send them an email or even more crazy, to send them a parcel of used coffee grounds to support them~!

    (yes i know… the parcel thing is too crazy… i just mention for fun….+___+)

    This is certainly a very interesting feedstock, as this does not compete with food for land. Neither does it require additional resources because it is wast anyway. However the collection and trucking to central processing plants my spoil the overall carbon footprint a bit. There is a big advantage, if you grow coffee, and make biodiesel at the same spot, such as in brazil.
