We Make Biomaterials

Combining natural elements:
organic and agroforestry residues and mycelium

Customizable, to meet customer's needs

Cost effective;
With good design;
Extending natural resources life cycle.

100% biodegradable, promoting:
+ Environmental sustainability;
+ Decarbonization;
+ Ecological footprint reduction.


Our biocomposites are multifaceted and result in numerous applications.
After their original application, they can be reused for organic fertilization of soils or incorporation into new biocomposites.

Flower pots and forest containers

Construction panels

Ornamental vases

About Us

The “Spawnfoam” idea emerged in 2013 with a clear goal: to change the paradigm of production and consumption of petroleum derived composites and materials, such as plastics, presenting a competitive alternative of organic and biodegradable origin.

From idea to practice, today Spawnfoam is a recognized biotechnology company with important awards and prizes.

It differs in the market by the technological innovation in the development of biomaterials that contribute decisively to increase the planet’s sustainability, the efficiency in the use of natural resources and, consequently, to the transition to a circular economy.
