Biodegradable packaging materials
Mycelium can be used to create biodegradable packaging materials, such as mycelium-based foam or cardboard. These materials are environmentally friendly and can be used to replace traditional packaging materials like plastic or Styrofoam.
Insulation for buildings
Mycelium can be used to create insulation for buildings. This type of insulation is made from mycelium mixed with a binder and other materials, and it is both fire-resistant and energy-efficient.
Mycelium can be used to create leather-like materials. These materials are created by growing mycelium on a substrate and then tanning it to create a leather-like texture and appearance.
Mycelium can be used to create art. Some artists have used mycelium to create sculptures or other works of art, taking advantage of its unique texture and color.

Mycelium is referred to by Ecovative as a “super ingredient” due to its high fiber and protein content, which is similar to that of a slice of bacon. It can be grown at a competitive price of $1 per pound. According to Ecovative, the greatest potential of mycelium lies in its ability to mimic whole cuts of meat. This is in contrast to most other plant-based meats, which are typically offered in minced patty or sausage form.
