According to Columbia University Earth Institute, cement is the second-most consumed substance on Earth and its production accounts for 5% of global Co2 emissions. bioMASON aims to help reduce global dependencies on non-renewable fuel sources, precious water resources, and carbon emissions through the manufacture of biologically-based materials for the building sector. bioMASON’s technology employs microorganisms to grow cement. It uses locally available supplies in ambient temperatures and eliminates the need to use fuel to fire or to cure the material.
