Canton, Mass.–based coffee chain Dunkin’ Donuts has built a mobile tiny house that is entirely powered by biofuel—made of 80 percent oil extracted from used Dunkin’ coffee grounds and 20 percent alcohol (to make the fuel burn). Constructed in a partnership with Nashville, Tenn.–based tiny house design/build firm New Frontier Tiny Homes and Seattle-based Blue Marble Biomaterials in three months, the tiny house provides an example of how waste can be converted to fuel. The tiny house is currently sitting on a lot in Nahat, Mass., and is available to rent via Airbnb until Oct. 30.
