Instead, products are grown in less than 72 hours using natural biocement® as a binder for aggregates. Aggregate materials are waste and locally sourced. Biocement Products enable manufacturing to take place in ambient temperatures, using existing concrete equipment. bioMASON made products with biocements are tested in ASTM standard labs for strength and durability and exhibit higher performance.
