Growing materials with mycelium

Mycelium is the root structure of mushrooms, which grows through a substrate. The substrate at Grown.Bio is based upon rest-streams, and mycelium.

With these only these two ingredients, they obtain a biodegradable material that can grow in any given shape. Working together with mycelium, allows us to capture CO2 whilst making material, instead of emitting.

The mission at Grown.Bio is to promote a sustainable alternative to plastic and make a global impact by using mycelium for packaging, building panels or interior design products. Therefore, they contribute to the transition towards circular economy, by creating a product with nature without any waste.
