    Tuesday Sep 8 | Gizmag

    Coffee grounds are not exactly noxious despoilers of the environment, but many millions of tons of them are generated every year and simply disposed of with other vegetable matter and food waste. Now, researchers have devised a way to utilize this innocuous waste product to get rid of a much more dangerous one.

    As if coffee isn't amazing enough already. A team of researchers-who, yes, got the idea over a cup of coffee-are reporting in the journal Nanotechnology that soaking spent coffee grounds in potassium hydroxide and then heating the grounds in a furnace creates a material that can store up to 7% of its weight in methane, a greenhouse gas that Popular Science calls both "incredibly potent" and "much stronger than carbon dioxide."

    Sep 2, 2015 | Science Blog

    Scientists have developed a simple process to treat waste coffee grounds to allow them to store methane. The simple soak and heating process develops a carbon capture material with the additional environmental benefits of recycling a waste product.

    Methane capture and storage allows double environmental returns, since it removes a harmful greenhouse gas from the atmosphere and it can then be used as a fuel that is cleaner than other fossil fuels. Materials that can absorb methane are attracting a great deal of interest because of the inherent danger of storage in gas cylinders.
