OUR PROJECTS IN CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Permafungi is a social cooperative settled in Brussels that recycles urban waste – the coffee grounds – in order to grow several products:

ORGANIC MUSHROOMS

Our oyster mushrooms grow on the coffee grounds harvested, by bike, from our Brussels partners. In fact, coffee grounds are the perfect base for growing oyster mushrooms thanks to the numerous microelements contained in it.

ORGANIC FERTILIZER

As they grow, oyster mushrooms turn the coffee grounds into an excellent compost, 100% natural, the mushpost. Once we produced oyster mushrooms, we reuse this compost in order to grow… soil-grown chicory!

ECODESIGN

A part of the oyster mushrooms production rest is also used to create a biodegradable material, able to replace plastic. We use it in our ecodesign projects, as Lumifungi lamp.
