Mycelium

Nature friendly products

Summary

Mycelium is the underground root structure of mushrooms; the glue that holds the forest floor together. When you introduce mycelium in agricultural waste, the mycelium acts a glue that binds the biomass together. In turn you create fully compostable products.

A revolutionary, circular technology, reinvented.

Benefits

Nature friendly

Mycelium is a material common to nature. Under every step you take you will find mycelium. It is therefore not only biodegradable, but even soil improving.

Circular

The mycelium products are made from agricultural biomass and ‘waste’ materials from mushroom growers. The products are therefore fully circular.

Grown to shape

Mycelium can be grown in shapes but also can be shaped afterwards. Even complex forms are a possibility.

Insulating

Mycelium materials insulate very well. The material is heat resistant and dampens sounds better than conventional materials.

Case studies

We have developed our cutting-edge mycelium materials within several projects.

Down to Earth

The funeral industry is an ever growing market. Unfortunately, it is also a conservative market. Coffins and urns are still often produced from glued (particle) board, which contains toxins such as formaldehyde.

Down to Earth creates coffins that contain only natural materials, and therefore do not harm the environment. Even more, every coffin that is buried only improves soil quality! Mycelium binds agricultural waste and turns into a product that is biodegradable and disruptive for the industry!

Status: Under development
