Abstract

Mycelium-based materials have gained significant attention in recent years as a sustainable alternative for construction in civil engineering projects. This literature review aims to explore the utilization of mycelium-based materials for carbon dioxide (CO2) mitigation in construction practices. The review examines various studies and research articles to understand the potential of mycelium-based materials in reducing carbon emissions in the construction industry. The findings indicate that mycelium-based materials offer promising opportunities for sustainable construction, as they have the ability to sequester CO2 during their growth process. Additionally, mycelium-based materials possess desirable properties such as lightweight, fire resistance, and thermal insulation, making them suitable for structural and non-structural applications. The review also identifies the challenges and limitations associated with the implementation of mycelium-based materials in construction. Overall, this literature review provides valuable insights into the application of mycelium-based materials for carbon dioxide mitigation in civil engineering projects.
