Dutch Power Company to Use Coffee Husks as Fuel

[Biofuel Review] Development organization Solidaridad and Dutch energy company Essent have introduced a new form of biomass using coffee husks as raw material. The coffee husks are a residual product from Brazilian coffee cultivation and suitable for replacing coal or other fossil fuels to produce electricity in some of Essent’s power stations. Using coffee husks as fuel to generate green electricity is a world first, says the company.
