Carbon-Free, Biologically-Grown Bricks Win Green Business Competition

Carbon-Free, Biologically-Grown Bricks Win Green Business Competition | Green Economy Technology | Scoop.it

A British competition has awarded $669,000 to an American start-up that’s developed an organic, carbon-free process to make bricks. Through a process similar to the way marine life constructs coral or sea shells, bioMASON uses bacteria to form sand into a crystalline structure that can serve as bricks or a cement-like construction material. The process occurs in a setting similar to a greenhouse, and its only inputs are the bacteria and its food, sand, nitrogen, calcium and water. As a bonus, the irrigation system for the bacteria is even recycled in a closed-loop set-up, meaning bioMASON’s business model wastes little water.
