During the cultivation, the wood substrate is broken down and delignified by mushroom thus enabling a bioconversion of cellulose contained in the wood into ethanol.
Our patented innovations will largely increase energy-and-resource efficiency and reduce costs as well as to facilitate a robotisation of the integrated mushroom production and biofuel processing.
