Growing edible mushrooms on waste

Title Growing edible mushrooms on waste
Description of ecotechnology We are growing edible oyster mushrooms on coffee grounds. In 2017 we recycled 40 tons of coffee grounds and made 6 tons of mushrooms out of it – in 2018 we will allmost double this numbers. The main advantage is the upcycling of an urban waste (700 tons of coffeegrounds per week only in Vienna) an the production of a healthy, local food for the people of Vienna. Cargo bike transport included. Became curious? Watch our animated graphics at
