In today’s rapidly evolving construction landscape, sustainability is not just a trend but a necessity. BIOBUILD is at the forefront of this movement with its groundbreaking bio-binder technology, harnessing the growth of fungal mycelia to create innovative, eco-friendly solutions.

Fungal-based composites represent a paradigm shift towards circular economy principles, where waste is minimized, and resources are utilized efficiently. This versatile composite material is not only environmentally friendly but also boasts a myriad of applications, from packaging to architectural designs, walls, and insulation.

We’re thrilled to share how our innovative approach is revolutionizing the construction industry with eco-friendly materials and cutting-edge technology: Mycelia-based wallboards impregnated with bioPCM.

These revolutionary wallboards offer a fully bio-based solution for thermal energy storage in buildings. By harnessing the power of mycelium, the vegetative state of mushrooms, combined with bioPCM (Phase Change Materials), together with our partner, MOGU we are designing a product that not only prioritizes sustainability but also enhances building efficiency.

In BIOBUILD, Mycelia grows on bio-PCM impregnated fibres, acting as a binder in the novel bio-composites. These mycelium-based wallboards are inherently sustainable, enhancing the thermal efficiency of buildings and reducing the reliance on non-European and unsustainable resources for heating. They represent a valuable, practical, and environmentally conscious alternative to traditional construction materials, with the potential to reduce the environmental footprint of buildings.

Here’s why BIOBUILD’s Mycelia-based wallboards are revolutionary in the construction industry:

  • Fully Bio-Based: We’re committed to sustainability, and these wallboards are a testament to that. They’re made from renewable, natural materials, reducing our reliance on non-sustainable resources.
  • Safe and Sustainable: Our wallboards prioritize safety and environmental responsibility. With no harmful chemicals or additives, they provide a safe and healthy indoor environment for occupants.
  • Enhanced Thermal Efficiency: One of the key benefits of our Mycelia-based wallboards is their ability to improve building thermal efficiency. This means better insulation, reduced energy consumption, and lower heating costs for homeowners.
  • Supporting Local Economies: By using European-sourced materials, we’re not just reducing our carbon footprint but also supporting local economies and communities.

By embracing fungal-based bio-binders, BIOBUILD is paving the way for a more sustainable future in construction. These materials not only reduce our environmental footprint but also offer innovative solutions that meet the demands of modern architecture and design.
