According to the agreement, Sealed Air will be the exclusive licensee of Ecovative Design’s mycelium-based material technology in North America for protective packaging applications. In the past six months Sealed Air and Ecovative Design have developed plans for sales and marketing as well as the augmentation of production capabilities.
