How Stuff Works, Biohm

Can Mushrooms Actually Help Save the Planet?

'Scientists in the company's London lab work to develop new strains of fungi by exposing batches to stimuli like differing light or humidity levels. In this process, known as directed evolution, the fungi rapidly evolve, for instance creating new enzymes'

Why People Think Mushrooms Could Save The World

'Raw materials are usually a manufacturer’s main expense, but Biohm grows its mushrooms using other companies’ byproducts, such as timber shavings and grass clippings, which it is paid to collect, creating a “double revenue stream.”'

How to create a truly sustainable workplace

'Currently pushing the boat out in this sector is British startup Biohm. Not only is the company working towards fabricating construction materials from waste products, such as paper and even dried orange peel, but it’s also working towards an off-site modular construction approach.'

'Produced in collaboration with London-based startup Biohm, which works to bring sustainable solutions to the built environment, each of the lamps are made using naturally occurring biological processes.'

Mushroom insulation wins global award

'His team has developed building insulation made of mycelium – the vegetative part of a mushroom – which he says has superior insulation qualities, is naturally self-extinguishing, feeds off waste while it grows, and purifies the air once in place.'

Buildings made from fungi? Meet London's pop-up bio-lab innovators

'Biohm has transformed its shipping containers into a fully functioning “materials research lab”. It’s part kitchen – full of blenders, pots, pans and batches of what looks like muesli – part DIY microbiology lab, with fungi samples growing in an eerie, steaming, zip-up cupboard.'

'Vegan buildings': Developer of mushroom insulation wins global award

'His team has developed building insulation made of mycelium – the vegetative part of a mushroom – which he says has superior insulation qualities, is naturally self-extinguishing, feeds off waste while it grows, and purifies the air once in place.'

Secrets of the Disruptors: Biohm's Ehab Sayed

'Ehab Sayed is the founder of Biohm, a London start-up which has developed a revolutionary construction system dubbed ‘Triagomy', which does not require permanent binders or fasteners to create robust structures'

Global award for engineer with vegan vision

'His team has developed building insulation made of mycelium – the vegetative part of a mushroom – which is not only environmentally friendly, due to the aerative properties of mushrooms, but also fully meets fire safety standards as mycelium is naturally self-extinguishing'
