COFFEE HUSK IS THE DRIED SKIN WASTE OF THE BEAN
After petroleum, coffee is the second most commercialized product in the world. Coffee husks (or chaff) is the dried skin of the bean. During the roasting process, the husk falls off and mostly thrown away. Coffee husk is recently being used as reinforcing filler for thermoplastic composites as polypropilene or ABS. It is a valuable environmentally friendly resource that helps to reduce the amount of plastics used.
