Twilight Talk: Introducing Mykor and MykoFoam

March 11 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

The Green Register’s early evening talks supported by Ecomerchant: together promoting ethical, healthy sustainable building materials.

The Green Register are proud to welcome member Mykor to share their particular approach to decarbonising the construction industry. Co-founder Olivia Page will focus particularly on biomass-waste-based construction materials, understanding why and how they can be used in this context. Considering the UK government’s target to be NetZero by 2050, Mykor proposes some approaches that can already be adopted. Myor investigates a holistic system approach to design carbon out of our building projects as well as study the paramount importance of operational carbon emissions, embodied carbon and sequestered carbon in the built environment.

Olivia will then focus more on Mykor’s product and company mission – they manufacture insulation material made of industrial residues, mycelium, powered by biotech. Mykor is tackling 31% of global carbon emissions with one single product and envisioning a future in which buildings are built from carbon negative materials.
