Forest residues for combined mushroom and biofuel production: verification of substrate pasteurization settings

Reference number
Coordinator Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet - Institutionen för skogens biomaterial och teknik
Funding from Vinnova SEK 30 000
Project duration January 2017 - May 2017
Status Completed
Venture BIO Innovation - strategiska projekt
Call Pre-studies to develop new "Innovation Projects" within BioInnovation

Purpose and goal

The overarching goal was to develop techniques for a combined edible mushroom and biofuel production using forest residues. With this pilot study, we have successfully validated some necessary parameters of the key process, paving a way to further development of the innovation.

Expected results and effects

Major results show that our key technology can be adopted to birch wood and fibre rejects substrates for edible mushrooms, e.g. oyster mushroom production. The results come mostly from the experiment that was carried out in Swedish mushroom industrial environment, suggesting the technology readiness level (TRL) is lifted from 4 to 5, as we aimed for. Thus a solid fundament for the subproject is well formed.

Planned approach and implementation

The experiments were concucted well according to the original design and will have a big effect on further development of the innovation.
