Reusing Spent Coffee Grinds (SCG)

So you know how we drink a lot of coffee? Well, there is a lot of coffee waste, this is called spent coffee grinds (SCG). To save it from going to landfill I've developed The SCG Drying System, for cafe benchtops. This is a low powered, low noise electric machine which dries SCG for reuse in a variety of applications but for now, beauty products.

The scg dryer uses existing dehumidifying Electronic Parts

As the fan circulates air up through the heat sink (hot) it simultaneouly draws cold air down through the heat sink (cold). Here, the moisture in the air condenses into water and drips into the water tank.
