All the characteristics you want from plastic, but with a positive ecological impact

01 | BioWorks

BioWorks is a project aiming to create and grow biodegradable alternatives to plastic.

SOMA uses biological waste and combines it with mushrooms to grow a variety of materials which can be used as plastic substitutes. Our process is zero-waste, non-polluting and uses no chemicals.The material is not produced, it is GROWN!

Product Features

BioPore is a biodegradable substitute for styrofoam packaging. It shares all the benefits, like thermal isolation, shock absorbency, stability, and chemical inertness, while it has none of the downsides, such as being made from fossil fuels and polluting the environment. It is also highly flame resistant!

Material properties:

  • Completely biodegradable
  • Lightweight and Shock Absorber
  • Thermal Isolation
  • Flame resistance
  • Durable and Flexible

Production Process

01

Agricultural Waste
and Mycelium

Agricultural waste is collected from farms. At the same time, our lab produces the mushroom mycelium for inncoulation.

02

Processing, Molding
and Production

The waste is mechanically processed and sterilized. It is then pressed into molds, which are inoculated with mushroom mycelium. After a period of growth, the object is popped out of the mold and inactivated.

03

Product Use

The object is used as usual. Our current focus is on single-use objects, like packaging boxes, cup isolation, catering boxes, etc. Once used, the object can be discarded in the compostable garbage bin or directly onto the soil.

04

Fertilizer and Crops

If the discarded single-use objects are collected, they can be transported back to the farm, to be composted and serve as fertilizer, closing the circuit and returning it where it originally came from, to finish the degradation cycle.

Why mushrooms?

The world is drowning in plastic. Most of the waste produced today is generated from single-use plastics or packaging. Styrofoam accounts for nearly 30% of all non-degradable waste produced. Nature has a perfect recycling system. It uses up no energy, produces negligible amounts of greenhouse gasses and creates useful products. It is mostly made up of fungi. At the same time, fungi act as little chemical labs, being able to produce a range of beneficial compounds. So, why not adopt a process that is in tune with nature to produce for us?

That is exactly what SOMA does. We harvest waste and use natures recycling system to turn it into usable products.
