We’re a biotech startup. We research, develop and produce functional 100% natural materials from fungal mycelium and waste from the agricultural and wood processing industries.
We source all of our raw materials from renewable sources that are readily available locally.
Our products are 100% degradable by natural processes and therefore harmless to nature (on the contrary, they serve as fertilizer).
No harmful chemicals are used in their production and no additional waste is generated.

What we can do
The typical use of mycelium is as a replacement for polystyrene foam. It has a similar structure and can be moulded. The resulting material is both strong and flexible. Various boxes and gift packs or just fixing and protective elements for cardboard boxes are possible.
Thanks to its easy mouldability and interesting natural appearance, it can also be used to create design products of various kinds. Various surface finishes and laser engraving are also possible.
What we are working on
Due to the porosity, use as insulation is also an option. The advantage in this case, for example, is that it is considerably more resistant to fire and does not specifically melt at higher temperatures, as is the case with EPS.
It will also be possible to produce dense hard boards as an alternative to plywood, chipboard, etc.
