Episode #5: Joanne Rodriguez (Mycocycle), All about using fungi to upcycle construction waste
This podcast with Joanne Rodriguez ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/greengirlnow/ ) is about using fungi (yes, mushrooms) to upcycle waste materials like drywall or asphalt into higher value products. Joanne is the Founder and CEO of Mycocycle ( https://www.linkedin.com/company/mycocycle/ , https://mycocycle.com/ ).
The construction industry generates just huge amounts of waste every year. This fills up the landfills and releases more CO2 into the air since new products must replace this waste.
We need a circular economy for construction waste products and that’s what Mycocyle wants to do. Very exciting.
It’s amazing what Joanne and her team are doing with fungi. Listen to this podcast to learn all about it.
We hope you enjoy it.
