“Let’s join forces to strive for a less plastic and oil dependent economy!” (Krown Bio)

The Innovation
Packaging that is made from waste and fungus? Krown Bio is searching for ways to create products while eliminating plastic and wood and have found a valuable solution: Mycelium. Functioning as binding glue, it can be added to ground organic waste streams and create various sustainable products. Both, form and material characteristics, such as mass, resilience and surface can be flexibly adjusted. Another major advantage of this product: it is compostable and can be disposed without harming the environment. So far Krown-design products have found application in interior, building, construction and packaging!

How it all began
