 Project objective

Problem Growing certain biological foods requires a substrate such as straw, wood, chicken litter, horse manure and poultry litter for organisms to grow. Producing substrate today has low energy efficiency, has as a consequence that nutrients are lost, and is labour intensive.

Solution – the innovation The innovation, a new production method for substrate, enables resources for biogas production and mushroom production to be used in a circular system that recovers energy and nutrients in an ecological and economically sustainable way.

The project By creating a value circle between biogas production, mushroom production and energy and nutrient recovery it is possible to: • Generate high value growth media that is the basis for high value food production • Increase the feasibility of mushroom production by using a cheaper and transportable advanced substrate • Increase the feasibility of biogas production by re-entering the spent mushroom substrate back into biogas production • Increase energy efficiency from existing 50-55% to 80-85% of biomass in biogas production • Recover nutrients from biogas production In phase 1 the purpose is to prepare the construction of test-, pilot- and demonstration plant to be built in phase 2.

Business model Advanced Substrate Technology (AST) holds the rights to the innovation, which will be licensed to business partner Panbo, who is a leading supplier of production facilities to the mushroom industry.

Market and impact The global mushroom market is bn10.8€ and growing steady. Production in Europe is declining and rising in China due to lower labour costs. The targeted customers are new production facilities for mushrooms. The case for mushroom production is particularly compelling. Using the Advanced Substrate Plant enables automation of the very labour intense mushroom production, resulting in a 50% reduction in production costs with a payback time of 2-3 years.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "MUBIC" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
