From linear to circular consumption, myco-composite materials replace ‘end-of-life’ concept with restoration, shifting towards the use of renewable sources, eliminate toxic chemicals; which impair reuse and aim for the elimination of waste through the superior design of material. The substrate of the mycelium material growth mainly comes from environmentally sustainable sources such as plant-based waste products.
Recycling and appreciation of agricultural waste: Burning waste crops is one of the main causes of environmental pollution. We help alleviate this by raising economic interest in the recycling of these “waste” materials to generate extra income for the farmers. Furthermore, the boards produced are bonded with natural mushroom based adhesive. This is environment friendly, and the technology can be easily transferred to the local industry. Since 2015 Mycotech have been empower 4 mushroom farmer group to supply and manufacture raw material. By managing 5000 kg waste, they supplying 3000 kg/month. It is gives additional income and impact to 200 people involved.
