Mushroom® Insulation and Acoustics

MycoFoam, now proven to replace plastic foams for protective packaging, is coming next to insulation and acoustic tiles. Today’s most common insulation materials have some serious negative environmental consequences. We’re developing natural Mushroom® Insulation as a healthy, easy to install, fire resistant insulation product that performs.

Mushroom® Insulation is available in limited quantities for select projects. Please contact our sales team to get the conversation started. We're currently working with partners from the building and construction field to scale this material. If you’re a builder or contractor and want to be among the first to know when Mushroom Insulation is available, sign up here and we’ll keep you posted when we announce final specs, pricing and other details.

Mushroom® Buoys and Rafts

We’re currently developing replacements for buoys and other marine applications. MycoFoam is naturally buoyant and can withstand salt water for 2-3 months before breaking down. We are actively exploring coating techniques that will allow the material to sustain longer, but still decompose when the product is no longer wanted or lost at sea. Stay tuned for updates and developments!
