EarthBlock is stronger than CMUs or polystyrene. Their superior structural strength requires less steel and cement than typical buildings yet they remain strong enough to withstand earthquakes and even Category 4-5 hurricanes (if properly designed and built).
EarthBlock is fireproof, waterproof, insect-proof, virtually soundproof, and even bullet proof. Each block is also structural. All these factors make EarthBlock the preferred material for building in most environments.
EarthBlock can be used with any type of architectural vernacular or style. EarthBlock works seamlessly with current building practices and do not require any special tooling or extensive training. EarthBlock assembly is faster and more effective than current types of building methods.
The production of Styrofoam is energy intensive, creating large amounts of greenhouse gasses. Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) or Styrofoam, is a petroleum-based non-biodegradable foam, and is a known human carcinogen. Polystyrene has serious impacts upon human health, wildlife, aquatic environment, and the economy. Polystyrene has almost zero structural value, it requires lots of cement and steel to hold it up.
The production of cement is energy intensive. It is one of the highest industrial polluters on the planet. It is responsible for 8% of annual Co2 emissions. Just 20 sacks/bags of cement have a carbon dioxide footprint that can be expressed as a carbon cube, measuring 8.2 meters long, 8.2 meters, wide and 8.2 meters tall. (27 ft long x 27 ft wide x 27 ft tall).
Carbon Smart, lowest embodied energy of any structural scalable building material. EarthBlock formulas use the most widely available, ecologically sustainable building materials on Earth and are 100% recyclable and non-toxic. Our material requires less natural resources such as water and reduces energy demand required in building use.

We are designers and developers of the built environment. We are engaged in shaping natural and abundant resources to help solve some of the world’s most pressing issues. Housing and Climate change.
We help others in their design, material selection and sustainability goals. Our high-performance and environmentally safe materials make better homes and buildings.
EarthBlocks are used by developers, builders, architects, homeowners, and the US Military.
