Ecovative’s scientists, engineers and product development team deliver the most innovative solutions for sustainable materials across multiple industries.Ecovative’s design team turns Mushroom Material technology into beautiful eco-products that perform to exacting specifications.
“Inspired by the woods of Vermont, a US biotechnology startup have developed a system for using agricultural byproducts with fungal mycelium (a natural, self-assembling binder) to grow high performance insulation. Ecovative Mushroom® Insulation is seen as a viable competitor to plastic foams that can be found in both in packaging and building insulation, for which the project recently won second place in the Cradle to Cradle Product Innovation Challenge.”http://www.archdaily.com/473052/insulation-grown-from-funghi/
