Using Mushroom Materials to Replace Plastic Foam
We all know petroleum-based plastic is harmful for the environment, yet it has become such an inseparable part of our lives. Enter Ecovative, an innovative firm that utilizes their ‘Mushroom Material’ technology to offer a biodegradable alternative to plastic foam.
Mushroom Materials start with plant-based farm waste and can end up in your garden, fully compostable. Their award-winning, patented materials technology means a platform of possibilities, blending feedstocks and adjusting biological production parameters to meet cross-industry performance specifications. They are set to become pioneers of the “Mushroom Age” by utilizing:
a. Material Science
Their scientists, engineers and product development team deliver the most innovative solutions for sustainable materials across multiple industries.
b. Product Design
Their design team turns Mushroom Material technology into beautiful eco-products that perform to exacting specifications.
c. Application Testing
Their in-house testing and R&D facilities means shorter time-to-market for their partners’ products.
d. Manufacturing to Scale
They provide whole solutions, working with their partners in industry to design the machinery and tooling required for the production of Mushroom Material based products from any scale – from single plant capacity to mass production around the globe.
Living without plastic is quite unimaginable as of today but this seems to be a very promising start. How else can we use natural technologies to tackle our need for synthetic products?
