About

Mycotech is an advanced bio-material designed using mushroom mycelia as a non-toxic binder agent that enables the production of affordable, environmentally friendly and recyclable building materials, for a wide range of applications, from agricultural waste. Mycotech products have a low embodied energy and can be manufactured for a cost ~50% cheaper than those made from traditionally used materials such as gypsum board or clay brick. It is ten times more lightweight than these materials and has better production efficiency, allowing for faster construction. Mycotech is a toxin-free green technology that complies with all imposed EU regulations, is fully biodegradable, and is produced with abundantly available agricultural waste. Its production produces 90% less carbon emissions compared to typically used materials. Mycotech products for building materials (panelling and insulation) will be the technology’s initial test-bed. The results of the project will allow the company to move forward also with the other future applications (packaging, pallets, prefabrication walls etc.). Mycotech’s ambition is to disrupt the building materials market by producing sustainable products with high quality and design that has previously been impossible
