>>EVERY CUBIC INCH OF THE SOIL IS TEAMING WITH MILLIONS OF INCHES OF MYCILIAN.>>A WALK THROUGH THE WOODS IN GREEN ISLAND NEW YORK IS PLEASURE. WHEN YOU ARE WITH TWO BARELY 30-YEAR-OLD GENIUSES LIKE GAVIN MCINTYRE AND EVAN BAIR, YOU ARE SURE TO STUMBLE ON SOMETHING SCIENTIFICALLY COMPLEX.>>YOU SEE THE MYCILION GROWING INTO THE LOG.>>SOMEHOW IT INVOLVES A MUSHROOM.>>WE ARE HERE AT INCOE BAITIVE DESIGN, I’M A COFOUNDER AND SCIENTIST AT THIS BIOMATERIAL COMPANY, WHERE WE TAKE LOCAL FARM WASTE, MIXING IT WITH TISSUE FROM MUSHROOMS AND GROWING REPLACEMENTS FOR PLASTIC USED IN PROTECTIVE PACKAGING.>>WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH POLYSTERENE.>>THERE’S PACKAGING, BUILDING CONSTRUCTIVE, TENSES OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH USED. THEY ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE EARTH’S ATMOSPHERE.>>WE HAVE ALL SEEN THIS. EVERY BIG PRODUCT IS PACKAGED IN THIS MATERIAL. THESE ARE MADE FROM UNSUSTAINABLE PETROCHEMICALS AND CAN TAKE UP TO A HUNDRED YEARS – MAYBE MORE – TO BIODEGRADE AND LEAVE THE OTHER. WE USE AGRICULTURAL WASTE, LIKE CORN HUSKS AS A RESIN. WE COMBINE THEM, WE GROW IT IN A MOULD TO MAKE A SHAPE FROM EVERYTHING FROM PACKAGING.>>A MUSHROOM GROWING OUT OF A TREE IS COMPRISE THE BY MYCILIAN. IF YOU LOOK YOU YOU FIND FIBRES THAT ARE GROWING THROUGH THE SOIL OF THE ENVIRONMENT AND IN TREES. THAT’S GLUING THE MUSHROOMS ON TO THE SIDE OF THE TREE OR THE FOREST FLOOR. MUSHROOMS.>>WE NEVER GROW MUSHROOMS, WE KEEP THE MYCILIAN IN A VEGETATIVE STAGE. THE CONCEPT WAS WHEN I SAW MYSILIAN GROWING THROUGH WOOD SHIPS, KEEPING THEM TOGETHER. USING WASTE DIDN’T HAPPEN UNTIL I TEAMED UP WITH GAVIN.>>IT TAKES SEVEN DAYS FOR A PRODUCT TO BE GROWN. WE ARE ABOUT TO SHOW YOU HOW IT WORKS IN SECONDS.>>WHAT IS THIS.>>THE WASTE IS CLEANED, LIGHT BEFORE ADDING THE MYCEL.>>UM. IT’S IPP CUBATED AND IT BECOMES A SOLID WHITE MASS. NEXT IT GOES THROUGH A TROMELL, A MACHINE THAT GRIND THE WASTE.>>THIS IS REMINDING ME OF WILLIE WONGA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY AND I’M AFRAID I’LL BE SUCKED UP.>>THIS IS MULCHED AND STACKED INTO MOULDS. THE MYCELIAN DOES WHAT IT DOES – GROSS. ALL THAT IS LEFT IS TO PAYING IT AT A LOW TEMPERATURE OF 200 TO GROWTH.>>FRESHLY BASED FUNK US. SO IT CAN BE SOLD TO CORPORATIONS LIKE DELL COMPUTERS AND OTHER FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES.>>HERE IS WHAT IS COOL. I CAN TAKE THE MATERIAL, BURY IT IN MY YARD AND WITHIN A COUPLE OF MONTHS IT WILL BIODEGRADE AND ADD NUTRIENTS TO THE SAIL.>>ECHO VEIL IS ABOUT TO MANUFACTURE PLASTIC-FREE PRODUCTS. THE POSSIBILITYIES GO BEHIND PROTECTIVE PACKAGING, AND THEY ARE DEVELOPING HOME INSULATION.>>DO YOU GUYS FEEL YOU ARE HAVING AN IMPACT ON HUMANITY? >>WE SEE IT LOOKING FORWARD SENTURIES, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THE ENVIRONMENT IS AVAILABLE FOR OUR GRANDCHILDREN AND OUR GRANDCHILDREN’S CHILDREN. WE ARE TAKING BEST USE OF THE NATURAL RESOURCES TODAY.>>Only on Al Jazeera America>>A team of scientists are taking their inspiration from nature…>>Technology, it’s a vital part of who we are>>They had some dynamic fire behavior…>>…and what we do…>>Transcranial direct stimulation…>>Don’t try this at home…>>TechKnow’s team of experts show you how the miracles of science…>>This is my selfie, what can you tell me about my future?>>…Can effect and surprise us…>>Sharks like affection…>>Catch new episodes of TechKnow on Al Jazeera America check your local listings or visit aljazeera.com

Great news, BUT the Elephant in the room is the single use plastic bags you keep the Mycelium in. The Molds are not too bad as they can be reused an almost infinite amount of times, perhaps that’s the way to go with the single use, is to store all your Mycelium in Plastic containers instead of bags?. But an eco solution to you using single use plastic need to be found asap, or you are still a part of the problem to a degree, but stil are!

Lol, what if they find out that this mycelium isn’t good for environments that it isn’t native to and ends up killing a bunch of forests.

Biodegradable is not the same as compostable….Have they done any long term studies about how good this stuff actually is for the soil?
