Fungal mycelium

Client

B2B

Myco replaces single-use plastics with nature.

Myco is a biotech startup that researches, develops and manufactures functional 100% natural materials from fungal mycelium and waste from the agricultural and wood processing industries. The choice of raw material, the way it is processed and the variability of the production process make it possible to produce materials with different properties. However, all of them have one connecting parameter and the greatest value – biodegradability. The main objective is to apply mycelium where easy degradability is desired or, alternatively, where biological pressure is not a threat.

Unique selling points:

  • All raw materials are sourced from renewable sources that are readily available locally.
  • The materials are 100% degradable by natural processes and therefore harmless to nature (on the contrary, they serve as fertilizer).
  • No harmful chemicals are used in the production process and no additional waste is generated.
