Coffee is the second largest traded commodity in the world. More than 6 million tons of spent coffee grounds (SCG) per year are generating worldwide as a solid residue after beverage preparation or instant coffee production [1]. In the time when we should save carbon sources and use the carbon only we have to, SCG belong to valuable renewable sources of carbon. This work suggests a biological valorization strategy for converting of SCG into polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), lactic acid, carotenoids, antioxidants, antimicrobial agents, and filler for polymers [2 - 4]. For the suggested approach, the fractionation of SCG is a crucial step. For the biotechnological production of PHA, oil derived from SCG after extraction with n-hexane as well as fermentable sugar derived from SCG through hydrolysis have been used. SCG hydrolysates have been detoxified through an adsorption strategy by using Amberlite XAD4. Amberlite XAD4 is a non-ionic crosslinked polymer, which adsorptive properties are connected with its macroreticular structure, high surface area and the aromatic nature of its surface. XAD4 have a capacity for the adsorption of organic substances from aqueous systems. The compounds trapped on Amberlite XAD4 showed high antioxidative and antimicrobial activity and can be used as bioactive compounds with the use in pharmacy, food and polymer industry. The rest solid material after neutralization and composting can be used as fertilizer or after modification as filler for polymers. In conclusion, it can be said that nowadays, when many concerns about consequences of depletion of natural resources and the rapid changing of the climate have arisen, the broad availability of SCG should be accepted and utilized wisely as “value-added product” [5].
