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.
material from mushroom mycelium
The choice of raw material, the way it is processed and the variability of the production process make it possible to produce materials with different properties. However, there is one uniting parameter and the greatest value in all of them – biodegradability. While in a dry (indoor) environment the material is stable and lasts unchanged for years, when exposed to biological pressure (moisture, bacteria) it starts to decompose very soon. Although it is possible to increase the resistance, for example, by additional surface treatment, our main objective is to apply mycelium where easy degradability is desired (disposable products) or, alternatively, where biological pressure is not an issue.
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.
carriers of scents / odours
The material absorbs oils very well and is therefore encouraged to be used as a carrier for substances that are gradually released from it. Diffusers for the home and the car are possible, or, on the contrary, odour fences against game in vineyards, gardens, etc.
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 its porosity, it can also be used as insulation (thermal, acoustic). The advantage over EPS will be that it is more resistant to fire, does not melt at higher temperatures and does not produce toxic combustion gases when burning.
It will also be possible to produce dense hard boards as an alternative toplywood, chipboard, etc.
it makes sense
We source all of our raw materials from renewable sources that are readily available locally.
Our materials 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.
Our team is united by an interest in environmental issues, technology and design. We believe that the mass use of mycelium in industry can fundamentally help in the fight against climate change.
