Welcome to the revolutionary FUNGUSHCHAIN concept: Watch te Project final video

Each year million tons of mushroom byproducts are generated in Europe. Funguschain project aims at the integral valorisation of agricultural residues from mushroom, in particular from agaricus bisporus processing into bio-based functional additives and biopolymers using a cascading approach and demonstrating its industrial viability by building a new biorefinery and modifying industrial current lines. Watch [...]

What are mushroom cultivation residues doing in cosmetic products?

Protecting them from oxidation and spoiling. About 3 million tonnes of mushroom residues are produced annually by commercial mushroom growing farms and most of it ends in composting while it could be better used. Funguschain project goal is to valorise these residues and get functional additives and polymers to be used in food, plastic and [...]

BBI-JU Funguschain agrofilms from mushroom waste: a strategic tool for sustainable development

Within the framework of the BBI-JU Funguschain Project, the industrial context of Monaghan Mushrooms (MM) has provided the basis to design a biorefinery model aimed at the valorization of intermediate products derived from mushroom waste which can be further valorized into a variety of biobased products for different application sectors. These waste residues are nonetheless [...]
