First concrete example Tri-recycling

Nespresso capsules are composed of 90% of coffee grounds and 10% of aluminium. The capsules sorted by Novotel Chartres are then sent to a recycling centre dedicated to recycling Nespresso capsules from several European countries.

  • The aluminium will be melted down to make new objects (e.g. cans or bicycles)
  • The coffee grounds will be used to produce compost, biogas, and in the greenhouse for flowers.
