The Reboot: The role of mycelium in the future of materials

At Below Farm, our aim is to established the UAE as a centre of excellence for mushroom cultivation and mycelium technologies. In the fungi world, mushrooms are just the fruit, our team of mycologists have done a lot of work to establish the processes, technologies and techniques required to grow mushrooms in the desert. But below the mushrooms, there is a vast root network known as the Mycelium, which has a huge range of potential use cases, from packaging materials, to construction materials - all sustainable, compostable alternatives.

As the region's mushroom & mycelium experts, we were invited to join Sonul Rupani on her Dubai Eye 103.8 show The Reboot, to discuss the role of mushrooms and mycelium in the future of materials.
