Sustainable innovation: de Jong DUKE launches coffee machine made with coffee.
As part of the ACT2 program de Jong DUKE launches a coffee machine with a door made of 100% recycled materials and a design with a bio-plastic made out of used coffee.
The ACT2 effort is focused on sustainability and is the commitment to act too on environmental and corporate social responsibility issues like material selection, usage of resources, energy consumption, recycling, re-use of (recycled) materials and the use of solar generated energy to power the facility.
In 2014 the Nio was the first machine that was already partly build with reused materials. A new Nio already consists of approximately 23% recycled plastics. The current V’Eco door and other plastic components of the design are all made from 100% recycled materials which can be recycled again making these parts truly circular.
Design from coffee
The innovative coffee front should be considered a first step to experiment with the application of biodegradable components in the equipment design. Coffeebased, a Dutch startup that experiments with coffee waste in order to develop and manufacture various products, has supplied the material, which was then formed by conventional methods. In order to avoid plastics from being used on the front for marking purposes, as this would nullify the possibility for a really biodegradable product all branding items are either lasered or actually branded in the coffee front. The V’Eco coffee machine signifies our commitment to act responsibly and combine design with improved sustainability.
