Coffee power for Lafarge BC cement plant

Lafarge Canada has an alternative-fuels partnership with Van Houtte Coffee Services to use waste K-Cup packs at the Kamloops, BC plant.

Some 70,000lb of used K-Cup packs will be burned as alternative fuel at the cement plant to reduce landfill waste and replace a portion of the plant’s fossil fuel use.

Van Houtte Coffee Services currently collects K-Cup packs from its commercial accounts in the BC interior and Lafarge is also welcoming the public to drop off used packs at the Kamloops plant located at 9750 Shuswap Road.

Bob Cooper, vice president, cement, Lafarge in western Canada, said: “As part of its worldwide Sustainability Ambitions to minimise fossil fuel use and their related greenhouse gas emissions, Lafarge is proud to be the recipient of used K-Cup packs, which are helping manufacture a critical building material.”

Morten Schroder, Van Houtte Coffee Services district manager British Columbia, said: “Innovation is at the heart of our actions and addressing the environmental impact of Keurig brewing systems is a critical priority. The partnership between Lafarge and Van Houtte Coffee Services is a great example of what is possible when like-minded companies start working together towards a common environmental goal.”
