[nano tech 2024] Mushroom Materials Technology Research Consortium - Shinshu University

Shinshu University’s Faculty of Engineering has recently established the Mushroom Material Technology Research Consortium, with the aim of developing innovative mushroom-derived materials. Their focus is on creating a material known as white mycelial pulp from underutilized mushroom resources. By bleaching and physically transforming the mushroom fruiting bodies into fiber material, they aim to leverage this new material to collaborate with mushroom producers and companies to create new high-tech materials. Through these efforts, the consortium aims to accelerate the growth of the bioeconomy. They are currently seeking product distributors and interested parties are encouraged to reach out for further information.Generated by OpenAI
