The disrupting startup Ecovative is designing materials that can imitate a wide range of products in our day-to-day lives. The base is always the same: mycelium.
The company focuses on three main material innovations that can be applied to a wide range of uses.
- Brings together agricultural byproducts with mycelium to produce a composite that can be turned into: packaging, building materials or interior products
- plantbased delicious and protein packed bacon
- pure mycelium foam that can be turned into different materials: from textiles like leather to high-performance foams for apparel to simple make-up foam alternatives.
Today Ecovative has collaborated with the world’s pioneering companies: from Ikea to Dell.
