mushrooms can imitate styrofoam
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.

5 recipes that will make mushrooms taste like meat!

  • MycoComposite
    • Brings together agricultural byproducts with mycelium to produce a composite that can be turned into: packaging, building materials or interior products
  • AtLast
    • plantbased delicious and protein packed bacon
  • MycoFlex
    • 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.
