Welcome to the website of ECO Consult Foundation. ECO Consult sells spawn and filter bags under the trade name SPORE. Furthermore we coordinate and perform research projects. We work together with research institutes in Germany (DLR, Pilzforum), China (Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University) and The Netherlands (Wageningen University and Research institute). Founder and chairman of the foundation is Peter Oei. He started growing different species of mushrooms in 1989 at the Mushroom Tower in Nijmegen, organised exhibitions and wrote several books and articles on mushrooms. The past years ECO Consult focused on substrate production for exotic mushrooms, which has led to technologies which can be obtained through licensing.
Since 2007 ECO Consult works on alternative use of spent mushroom compost, financed by the Horticulture Board and Rabobank.
