Recommended Posts

On the subject of alternative blocks

'bioMASON’s technology uses microorganisms to grow biocement™ based construction materials. The Company’s products include proprietary manufacturing processes and materials used by licensing partners for incorporation in existing facilities or on-site manufacturing. The strength of biocement™ materials is comparable to traditional masonry, and is used as a green alternative. bioMASON’s products are produced in ambient temperatures using locally available materials.
bioMASON enables savings in energy costs and zero carbon emissions.'

 

Looks awesome. Presumably rather expensive.

 

 

If you are really keen, they just opened a $18M funding round
