New strategies for the coffee by-products recovery as a new raw material for animal feed

The European iniciative LIFE ECOFFEED is intended to increase the value of spent coffee ground (SCG) and spent coffee capsules into high value secondary materials for dairy sheep and cattle feeding.

LIFE ECOFFEED will define and demonstrate the viability of a technology solution for the recovery of coffee by products as a new ingredient for animal feed.


How LIFE ECOFFEED can contribute

The inclusion of spent coffee ground as ingredient for dairy animals feed in the project area will allow:

  • The substitution of curren raw material for feed production.

  • Diminishing the land occupation for feeding farm animals.

  • Reduction of methane emissions due to the beneficial effect of SCG in the rumial methanogenesis.
