"The circular economy is the biggest economic opportunity in 250 years. Zero waste, low carbon companies will play a leading role in our economic and societal future. That's why we're here."
A circular economy ‘designs out’ waste and pollution. It is a $4.5 trillion opportunity. And it will reduce CO2 emissions by 48%, create jobs, improve public health — and heal the planet.
We’re starting with glass. You can too. Today, 70% of post-consumer glass is landfilled. Partner with us and upcycle it into Engineered Cellular Magmatics — advanced sustainable materials that make cities resilient.
“Engineered Cellular Magmatics (ECMs) are novel advanced materials recognized by the DoE as having high value and potential. With ECMs we can Rebuild a Resilient America."
We cannot ‘rebuild a resilient America’ using the same 100+ year old materials that are crumbling in our roads, bridges, buildings and seawalls today.
ECMs (Engineered Cellular Magmatics) are revolutionarily sustainable, economic and effective. They have a 28x carbon offset over virgin raw materials. With ECMs we can:
As the impacts of climate change worsen, we must remodel our cities to absorb environmental and economic shocks and stresses — and flourish.
ECMs have myriad applications in Gray (concrete-based) and Blue-Green (air/water/earth) infrastructure.
93% of people want to recycle, but cities struggle, and landfill 70% of post-consumer glass each year.
If you want to clean your city’s waste stream, improve glass recycling rates and help save the planet, we’re there for you.
We call our glass collection division, ‘The Upcycling Company’. What you recycle, we collect and upcycle.
We partner with forward-thinking minds across government, industry, and not-for-profit.
The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy works to improve our economic prosperity, security, and environmental wellbeing. The Department of Energy is our preeminent agency for driving technological innovation, and the Savannah River National Laboratory is one of its crown jewels of science. We’re happy to count them all, and many more, as our partners.
Our philosophy is to do well by doing good.
We’re happy to partner with select not-for-profits who help heal the planet, and fortify cities and communities against the impacts of climate change.
If resilient shelter, infrastructure or cleaner air, water or earth is mission-critical to you, perhaps we can help.
