MycoMine’s innovative technology turns waste into life
We're a Swedish start-up focused on sustainable systems using MycoMining, where fungi extract, precipitate, and decompose elements. Our diverse co-founders bring expertise in research, art, and economics, united by our fascination with fungi. By applying nature's wisdom, we tackle urgent environmental issues, aiming to save the planet. MycoMine offers cost-effective and sustainable biological solutions, harnessing billions of years of evolutionary refinement to turn waste into life.
Some of our achievements
It has been a long and winding road from the first discoveries to the success of the MycoCube.
Here are a few milestones.
We discovered our first oil-degrading fungi
While exploring the unique ecosystems of Stockholm's Kungsträdgården metro station, the discovery of oil-degrading fungi with encapsulation abilities inspires the concept of using fungi as bio-microtreatment plants.
First minor prototypes
The first attempts to take the fungal-based innovation from the lab to an application takes place.
MycoMine sees the light of day
The four co-founders start MycoMine.
The Skapa award
We win the Skapa prize in Stockholm for the innovative MycoCube.
We are being accelerated!
Two start-up accelerators take us under their wings: Sting and Produktionsänglar.
Our first prototype
We install our first scaled-up fungal-based treatment plant in Ytterby mine. Thanks Fortifikationsverket!
We win Åforsk entrepreneur stipend
We recieve the Skapa Åforsk entrepreneur stipend
We win Swedish Mining Innovation
This secures funding to develop the MycoCube for heavy metal extraction and recycling.
We move into our office space in Årsta, Stockholm, complete with a lab, workshop, and office under the same roof.
MycoCube is a success
The treatment plant shows remarkable capacity. 99.9% hydrocarbon degradation.
Our goal is to solve environmental debts as well as prevent new ones.
