  • Patent number: 11564362
    Abstract: A mycelium growth bed for optimal production of pure mycelium or a pure mycelium composite with controlled or predictable properties, the bed comprising a tray, a conveying platform, a permeable membrane, a substrate, and a porous material. The permeable membrane is positioned on the conveying platform within the tray. The substrate is positioned on the permeable membrane and the porous material is positioned on top of the substrate. The system provides a configuration wherein the CO2 concentration is held above 3%, the relative humidity is held above 40% and the O2 concentration is held below 20% in steady state conditions to produce leather-like mycelium without fruiting bodies.

  • Publication number: 20220411149
    Abstract: Packaging may include a base box and a lid having a tamper-evident seal. The tamper-evident seal may include a paper substrate having a first adhesive portion configured to attach to a side panel of the base box, a second adhesive portion configured to attach to a second side panel of the lid. The first and second adhesive portions may be disposed on opposing sides of the paper substrate, and a tab configured to be accessible on an exterior of a package when the tamper-evident seal is applied may be a part of the paper substrate. When the tab is pulled with sufficient force, the paper substrate tears such that the first adhesive portion and the second adhesive portion remain fixed to the first and second side panels, respectively, while the remainder of the paper substrate tears free so that the packaging may be opened.

  • Publication number: 20200196541
    Abstract: A mycelium growth bed for growing a solid substrate-bound mycelium through which the mycelium composite is easily and readily removed. This is achieved through the use of a perforation layer embedded between the mycelium substrate and the mycelium composite so as to create a uniform structural weakness and thereby enhancing harvesting abilities of the ex-substrate mycelium via a greatly reduced and uniform tear strength. The perforation layer, through which the mycelium grows, allows for the gated and controlled extrusion of a matrix of colonial cells that may be easily and uniformly delaminated from the underlying mycelium substrate.

  • Publication number: 20200131694
    Abstract: An abrasion resistant finish for a fungal material, the finishing comprising an optimum quantity biodegradable polylactic acid plastic (PLA) dispersed in water to produce a PLA mixture. When the PLA mixture is applied to the fungal material, water carries the PLA deeply into the matrix of the fungal hyphae to a depth at least 2 N/10 mm or 1% of the thickness of the fungal material, whichever is greater. The finish fortifies the hyphal structure as the water evaporates and creates a PLA coating on the fungal material with improved abrasion resistance and water resistance.

  • Publication number: 20200025672
    Abstract: A method for reducing and determining coefficient of friction of a mycelium for improving a plurality of mechanical properties of the mycelium. In the method, a first mycelium layer is contacted with an abrasive and pressure apparatus for smoothing and altering a microstructure of the mycelium. The smoothing of the mycelium microstructure reduces the coefficient of friction of the mycelium thereby enhancing the abrasion resistance of the mycelium. The coefficient of friction of the mycelium surface reduced through smoothing of the mycelium surface is determined utilizing a tilt angle mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20190390399
    Abstract: A flexible fungal composite with an engineered and/or improved mechanical properties such as tear strength, tensile strength and resistance to separation. The fungal composite is generated by embedding a second material within a fungal matrix. The tear strength of the fungal composite is greater than the tear strength of the fungal matrix. The tensile strength of the fungal composite is at least equal to the tensile strength of the embedded material. And the resistance to delamination between the fungal matrix and the embedded material is such that the force required to separate the fungal matrix and the embedded material from each other is greater than or equal to the force required to separate the fungal matrix or the embedded material from themselves.
