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 www.hutundstiel.at
