CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa A New York company has plans to move into the old Cryvac/Sealed Air building along Wilson Avenue . Ecovative specializes in the creation of biodegradable packaging products, made with a combination of lab-grown fungus and corn stalks. They have entered into a licensing agreement with Sealed Air, which will handle plant operations.

A company spokesperson told us that Ecovative is partnering with local corn growers in a 30-mile radius of the plant, to purchase their ag waste.

One local farmer told us that while the prospect of selling his corn stalks is exciting, it would create the problem of having to compensate with more fertilizer in his fields, since the stalks typically act as a natural fertilizer when tilled back into the ground.
