Roast with pellets: Pellets technology for the process industry – step 1

This project intends to test the hypothesis that it is possible to run a coffee roast with pellets in such a way that the emissions are almost odorless, that the taste of the finished coffee is positively affected and that it is possible to run the process with a mixed fuel consisting of wood pellets and coffee chaff from roasting and thus make the process CO2 neutral and circular.
