Beer Brewing for Bio Design Materials

Amsterdam Makers Festival, August 20+21, 13:00 -18:00

How to go from beer to new bio-based materials? The Myco Brewery is part laboratory, part brewery and part factory. Here, we produce our own Myco Beer and use the bi-product of this process as a basis for new biodegradable insulation panels. During the Amsterdam Maker Festival you're invited to take part in the process. Our team will be there to share their expertise and we will have different samples for sale behind the bar.

Inspecting material made with mycelium - Because mycelium grows on cellulose materials like grains or straw it has a lot of potential as new bio-based material. Lisanne Groenewoud
