Fungi Foam

Potential moldable foam material for lost foam casting? Or large lite weight foam objects?

"Composed of renewable agricultural waste resources and mycelium fibers, Greensulate™ is produced without petroleum or light, requires no significant heat, is non-allergenic, and is less expensive to produce than foam products. It can be produced at room temperature..."

"...fungal mycelium, which is basically the rootsŁ of mushrooms. The mycelium acts as a resin to bond agricultural byproducts together into a rigid material. We don't let the mycelium grow long enough to produce mushrooms. That means you never have to worry about spores or allergens."
