Sealed Air, Ecovative JV for mycelium based material technology

ELMWOOD PARK/GREEN ISLAND, US: Sealed Air Corporation and Ecovative Design LLC completed an agreement to accelerate the production, sales and distribution of Ecovatives EcoCradle Mushroom Packaging, a new technology for environmentally responsible packaging materials made from agricultural byproducts and mycelium, or mushroom roots.

Sealed Air will be the exclusive licensee of Ecovatives mycelium based material technology in North America for protective packaging applications.
