The Company

Mylium was founded in 2018 by Iris Houthoff. She is a part-time lecturer at the Bioprocess Engineering Group at Wageningen University & Research and has a strong passion for bio-based and circular innovations. With Mylium she aims to introduce new sustainable materials into our society.

In 2019 Mylium received funding and moved to the Business & Science Park in Wageningen. Here we built our own lab facilities where we develop our unique production method.



The Team

We share a passion for fungi and feel a drive to have a positive impact, but we also value the entrepreneurial journey itself! Within our team we enjoy the pioneering work and interdisciplinary collaboration that lead to our innovations. A core value of our company is to facilitate an inspiring work environment that adds to personal development of everyone involved.
