3D printing coffee

Congratulations to Yinnon and Doron for winning first place at the HUJI innovate “Creativity Challenge 2020”!

Instead of throwing used coffee in the trash or mixing it with non-consumables materials, we have developed a variety of water-based inks for 3D printers in different concentrations of spend coffee ground (SCG) which consist of consumables in favor of creating a biodegradable flower pot. SCG has a carbon-to-nitrogen ratio and is made from nutrients that can improve soil and plants. Also, coffee contains oils and caffeine that can suppress certain plant growth and even prevent the development of microorganisms that are harmful to plants.
