A Lafarge cement plant in Kamloops, B.C., has begun using spent Keurig K-Cups as part of the company's push to move from fossil fuels to alternative fuels.

The single-serving coffee pods are not recyclable because they are a mixture of materials — coffee grounds, a paper filter, plastic cup, and foil top — that cannot be efficiently separated.

The idea to use the pods as fuel for the cement plant started with Kamloops Lafarge workers, who drink Keurig beverages at work.
