Licensing & Commercial Development
Ecovative’s Patented Technology Ecovative has spent the last ten years optimizing and developing mycelium composite technology and we’re ready and excited to bring it to your region. We have patents issued in over 31 countries covering any form of mycelium composite and mycelium composite production process. We’ve developed three different types of licenses depending on your scale.
What do we make with mycelium? We have successfully commercialized mycelium into markets ranging from packaging to structural materials to acoustical panels. We sell a lot of these products on our Shop and details about how they are produced can be found on our Pilot Plant page. We also have seen hundreds of projects around the world from customers using our GROW.bio program.
GROW.bio license... Not ready to start a full production factory? This is our free and open license for the public. You can purchase mycelium material through our GROW.bio program. This involves buying raw material from our facility that you can then grow on your own to produce objects of your choosing.
- Buy mycelium material from us.
- Grow anything you want.
- Sell the products you grow.
- Buy material here.
mCore license... This license is for qualified partners who are interested in investing and building a full-size facility and business in their region to produce mCore products. The mCore technology allows you to produce large flat panels with excellent acoustical insulation and fire resistant properties for use in floating wetland rafts, aquaculture, acoustic barriers, theater or movie set design, temporary signage, and large flat panels. mCore products are grown using Ecovative’s aerated bed reactor technology which is our unique process for generating bulk quantities of material at a low cost. This license can include exclusivity in your market category.
Right now you can buy panels from Ecovative’s Pilot Plant. We are currently limited to 1,000 ft3. Our average production cost is around $30-$60/ft3. If you were to license the mCore technology and build a full-scale operation, the price would be between $1-$5/ft3.
Molded Shapes license... is for qualified partners who are interested in investing and building a full-size facility and business in their region with our Molded Shapes technology. Our Molded Shapes license is a turnkey package to produce molded shapes which we use today to produce things from packaging to home accessories. This license can include exclusivity in your market category.
