Novel Research Found That Coffee Grounds Could Be Given A Second Life By Being Repurposed Into Eco-Friendly Items Thanks To 3D Printing

Rivera was inspired to conduct this research after watching coffee-ground waste pile up throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. And now, he believes this technology could pave the way for more sustainable 3D printing practices across various sectors.

“If you throw polylactic acid (PLA) in a landfill, which is where the majority of PLA ends up, it will take up to 1,000 years to decompose. Our vision is that you could just pick up a few things at a supermarket and online and get going,” Rivera concluded.
