Construction materials and processes account for about 20% of global CO2 emissions - a proportion that is set to rise as countries continue to develop and urbanize.
Much of these emissions arise from chemical processes - meaning even a full transition to green energy and transportation wouldn't eliminate the associated carbon footprint. To fully decarbonize construction materials, we need to find radical, green alternatives and/or embrace carbon capture technologies.

We're developing sustainable alternatives to cement, concrete and ceramic materials by combining plant-derived biopolymers with inorganic minerals to produce strong, hard materials. We avoid petroleum-based solvents and high-temperature processing to produce these relatively green biocomposite materials.
Materials for Earth and space
We're also developing new, affordable material technologies for off-world construction.
