Rapid Renewable Materials: the next step in sustainable construction.
In dit project onderzoeken we hoe de door de praktijk benodigde informatie van SHM op een betrouwbare en gebruiksvriendelijke manier kunnen aanbieden zodat deze materialen meer toegepast.
Mycelium on Board
In the project Mycelium on Board, mycelium composites are developed as a formaldehyde-free, fully natural and biodegradable material with high potential to substitute these hazardous materials.
Water-resistant mycelium composites
Within the Water-resistant Mycelium Composites project, we will see whether we can also apply the acetylation technique to mycelium composites, and test whether they have the desired effect.
Sustainable Particle Board
The coconut palm provides many different products: the pulp is eaten, coconut water is a refreshing drink, and coconut oil is used in cooking and for skin care. Products can also be made from the woody fibres, but these often end up as waste.
The Interreg 2 Seas FACET project wants to encourage entrepreneurs in the tourism sector to apply circular solutions within their company, thereby creating new sustainable revenue models. 
Biobased Insulation – Lifespan Determination (BILD)
The lifespan of a new biobased insulation material is an important characteristic. Nonetheless there is no defined and standardised method to determine the expected lifespan of a biobased insulation material.
In Mythic we develop the best available mycelium biocomposite that can be used as a circular, biodegradable insulation material for the construction industry.
Smart Circular Bridge
A bridge which indicates when maintenance or replacement is required: “Structural Health Monitoring”. The bridge's material behavior is now continuously monitored. A smart sensor system evaluates the signals and generates an alert when it detects critical levels of material degradation. Timely maintenance / replacement of components can be carried out in this way.
Learning Network Biobuilders
Lerend Netwerk Biobouwers is committed to the development of an innovative, practice-oriented teaching method for the construction sector.
Building on Mycelium
In the “Building On Mycelium” project, Avans University of Applied Sciences, HZ University of Applied Science and partners are investigating how locally available organic waste streams can be used to produce mycelium biocomposites, with properties that make them suitable for the construction sector. In this project the emphasis will be on (studying) the manufacture of furniture or interior panels.
Bio Iso (RAAK MKB)
However, the current focus on energy savings is increasingly leading to an unpleasant indoor climate and even unhealthy buildings.
Design with RRM (rapidly renewable materials)
RRM (rapidly renewable materials) come from nature. During their growth they remove CO₂ from the air.
