The Mycelium Biofabrication Platform
Automated Cellular Assembly
One Cell at a Time
At Ecovative, we use mycelium to grow materials. It all begins at the cellular level. The microscopic branches of mycelium, hyphae, grow outwards into 3D space self assembling into complex high performance structures.
By controlling the nutrients, environment, and the DNA of our organism we turn mycelium into programmable matter. Creating macro-objects with micro-structure precision that grow in just days.
Our biofabrication platform enables new materials with powerful properties.
Here are a few examples...
Grown molded shapes
Large panels and blocks
High performance foams
We help industry leaders create better materials through biology...
We also support everyday people around the world who want to create better products through biology...
