From waste to biomaterial

Developing mycelium and waste-based materials for the building industry

From waste to biomaterial

Mycelium and waste-based biomaterials have great market potential both nationally and internationally. Through co-creative processes new biomaterials will be developed for the building industry.

Throughout the next six months we will:

  • Complete material tests on different combinations of different mycelium species and waste types. 
  • Develop buildability and fabrication protocols and 
  • Provide proof-of-concept through design and construction of acoustical panels, interior walls and a spatial structure.
  • Document a business case for waste and mycelium-based biomaterials.
  • Develop a knowledge-sharing platform.
