Our award winning research is the backbone, which carries all of our products and services. 

Research

Biohm are developing new bio-based materials, to complement our ongoing research into alternative applications for mycelium. Biohm’s Orb (Organic Refuse Biocompound), is a semi-structural material, made from organic waste. This is being developed alongside a plant-based concrete (PCB), that will also be produced from the by-products of the agri-food industry. Get in touch with us using the form below to discuss our research projects in greater detail. 

Biohm is driven by a continuous stream of interdisciplinary, novel and intellectual property rich research, through which we also offer a range of services to industry.

The World Economic Forum has identified global construction waste as a major sustainability challenge. Over 100 million tonnes of waste are produced annually, with approximately 15% of materials delivered to construction sites going straight to landfill. Worldwide, construction waste (including demolition) is expected to increase to 2.2 billion tonnes annually by 2025 and currently accounts for more than half of all solid waste generated annually worldwide. 

Biohm's research seeks to address both waste streams by aligning our growth with critical national and global strategies to reduce waste by utilising what would have otherwise gone to landfill as the basis for our material production.

Biohm’s revolutionary approach to product development addresses these challenges as one. Rather than attempt to find a solution to a singular challenge we have embraced the principles of circularity to create a product and production approach that innovates across the entire spectrum, enabling high performing, regenerative, sustainable, ethically sourced and produced products, delivered at a competitive price.
