Substrate production of exotic mushrooms traditionally requires expensive equipment like autoclaves, high pressure steam boilers, clean rooms etc. We have developed new techniques to produce a stable substrate for shiitake and King Oyster mushrooms. The King Oyster mushroom substrate was tested by seven companies; six harvested 28-32% fresh mushrooms, one just over 20%.
The system requires no autoclaves, a low pressure steam boiler is sufficient to sterilise the substrate. A special mixer and filling unit has been developed. This technology is profitable for producers of substrate, who have a weekly output of 8 tonnes of substrate.
The technology is only available on a licensing basis. Please contact us if you are interested in this technology: info<at>spore.nl.
