Mycelium Materials Europe (MME for short) started in 2018 and is active in the bio-based materials and circular economy. We grow sustainable mycelium materials based on mushroom technology. We produce two types of organic materials in our own mushroom farm in The Netherlands: MyFoam® and HedelComposite, a mycelium substrate to grow your own products.
Mycelium is the branching root structure of mushrooms. It grows thread-like tissue called hyphae, that form vast mycelial networks. Mycelium is of vital importance to our ecosystems, as it can break down organic matter and restore nutrition in the soil. The mycelium can even act as a carbon storage facility and will reinvest the carbon into plants.
MyFoam® technology offers a supple and foam-like material fully grown from mycelium. MyFoam® can be used to make sustainable leather alternatives and other organic textiles. We currently only produce MyFoam® for our exclusive partners. Therefore, MyFoam® is unavailable for sales at this point.
We implement our extensive experience and practice in mushroom technology to construct Hedelcomposite. A Grow-It-Yourself mycelium substrate that can be applied to create 100% biodegradable products and packaging made from the roots of fungus. You can find our Hedelcomposite materials exclusively at Kineco.
