UpCycle: from waste to resource, from cradle to cradle[Proceedings] by Cédric Péchard

2014-12-13

Cédric Péchard graduated from ESSEC Business school and from the agro-development engineering school ISTOM. He created Upcycle, which produces Montecristo Pleurotes mushrooms from recycled coffee grounds, thus being in line with the principles of the circular economy. Upcycle is also an integration company that helps the long-termed unemployed rejoin the workforce.

Cédric Péchard, agricultural engineer, has founded UpCycle: an initiative that aims at valuing waste (coffee grounds) to produce mushrooms. UpCycle thus creates social links and economic value, through processes inspired by nature
