Funguschain partners are working on another biorefinery process, this time using mushroom by-products as the feedstock. The outputs will be different from BIOrescue, as this process aims at the creation of bio-based cleaning products, the extraction of proteins for food supplements, and the production of bio-plastic films from mushroom biomass. Both projects will help to [...]
Visit us! We are at the BBI JU Stakeholder forum, in Brussels. The event is dedicated to engage directly in dialogue with BBI JU’s stakeholders. The event include plenary keynote speeches, high-level discussions with expert panels, thematic breakout sessions, with plenty of networking possibilities.
Funguschain project is a new concept of biorefinery which will be created to valorise mushroom outcomes with a 4 steps cascading approach. Do you want to know more? See the video!

An innovative biorefinery will process and transform mushroom farming by-products into high value products
Each year, the European Union produces around 90 million tonnes of food waste, 38% of which is directly produced by the food-manufacturing sector. If we focus on the mushroom farming industry alone, each week more than 60,000 tons of mushroom disregarded outputs are generated in Europe. These are basically treated as an unwanted by-product and [...]
