Summary of your idea
Cultivating and commercialization Mushrooms by using coffee grounds it's my project idea. Mushrooms cultivating is a very good agro alimentary sector but it is not developed in Tunisia, working on this sector may be very profitable and cultivating the mushrooms is a promising project, so i had the idea of cultivate mushrooms using the traditional technique. Thinking about using this technique has taking me to think about the expensive chemical products and the very big quantities of water and area needed to cultivate my product. I elaborated my researches and i found that the coffee ground contain all the types of mineral salts and the quantity of water the mushrooms needs in his growing or cultivating cycle and even more. So using this new technique offer me the opportunity to minimize expenses more than 50%. This approach will make our product BIO by avoiding using the chemical products and minimize the water needs, and will give us the opportunity, firstable to empower and develop youth and womans situation, second to protect the environment by using the coffee ground as a cultivation substrate and as a high quality compost after the cultivation cycle. PS: I tested the efficiency and the safety of my technique on an agroalimentary laboratory.
