 Project objective

Mycotaff is an advanced bio-material designed using mushroom mycelia as a non-toxic binder agent that enables the production of affordable, environmentally friendly and recyclable building materials, for a wide range of applications, from agricultural waste. Mycotaff materials have a low embodied energy and can be manufactured for a cost ~80% cheaper than those made from traditionally used materials such as gypsum board or clay brick. It is ten times more lightweight than these materials and has better production efficiency, allowing for faster construction. Mycotaff is a toxin-free green technology that complies with all imposed EU regulations, is fully biodegradable, and is produced with abundantly available agricultural waste. Its production produces 90% less carbon emissions compared to typically used materials. It is easily customizable for its range of applications, Class A fireproof, and has a low U value of 0.16 W/mK making it an ideal material for insulation, packaging and other building applications.

The SME Instrument project aligns itself perfectly with the innovation strategy and mission of Mycotech: to commercialise an affordable, sustainable, and durable biomaterial. Mycotech’s products for building materials (panelling and insulation) will be the technology’s initial test-bed. The results of the project will allow the company to move forward also with the other future applications (packaging, pallets, prefabrication walls etc.).

We have developed strategic partnerships with several leading research institutions and companies involved in big impact projects in the field of bio-based construction. Mycotech’s ambition is to disrupt the building materials market by producing sustainable products with high quality and design that has previously been impossible.

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