Sounds good, that mycelium!
Mycelium bio-composites consist of two components: natural fibers and mycelium, the "root network" of mushrooms, which acts as a natural glue to bind the fibers. These bio-composites can have properties that are comparable to polystyrene foam or sheet materials, depending on the manufacturing process. Students conduct research into the acoustic properties of the biobased material.
