Ecovative Design, a Green Island, NY company, uses broken up flaxseed stalks mixed with a mycelium mushroom powder to form a biodegradable material to replace styrofoam. Ecovative Design gave Williamson seed to grow 4-acres of flaxseed plants as a test crop. He will retain and crush the seeds to make flaxseed oil to sell to cosmetics and food companies.
