Welcome to Earthblock

Building a
Better Future

The SOLUTION

A high-impact nature-based solution to the built environment

EarthBlock is a high performance, sustainable, regenerative building material, well suited in regions where annual tropical storms, hurricanes and high temperatures dominate more than half the year.

Better for You

EarthBlock outperforms traditional cement block (CMU), polystyrene building, and wood products in strength and durability, heat and cold transfer, humidity control, building maintenance, energy use, and ecology.

Better for the Planet

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. Less structural steel and cement are required in EarthBlock buildings.

The Benefits

EarthBlocks build
better homes

Breathable Walls

EarthBlock walls are breathable and ensure improved indoor air quality, superior longevity, better thermal storage qualities, higher R values, improved fire safety, less moisture buildup and superior resistance to mold and mildew. Cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Evaporative Cooling

EarthBlock functions according to a basic principle called ‘evaporative cooling’ where the evaporation of water (humidity) from a surface removes heat, creating a cooling effect. Evaporative cooling improves indoor air temperature and human comfort levels by providing a natural passive humidifier and dehumidifier. Helping you be healthier and feeling better all year-round.

weight

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.

Understand the Features

A high-performance, sustainable, regenerative building material.

EarthBlock integrates and optimizes all major high-performance attributes, including energy efficiency, durability, life-cycle performance, occupant productivity and livability.

EarthBlock is a modern adobe with exceptional natural qualities. However, unlike a traditional adobe, it has features and benefits which include being waterproof, mold proof, fireproof, bug proof, virtually sound proof, and even bullet proof up to a 50 cal.

grid_view

EarthBlock is composed of dry inorganic subsoil, non-expansive clay, aggregates, and a natural stabilizer, compressed under high pressure to form extremely strong, structural, and durable building blocks.

HIGH PERFORMANCE

EarthBlock integrates and optimizes all major high-performance attributes, including energy efficiency, durability, life-cycle performance, occupant productivity and livability.

SUSTAINABLE

Anteros EarthBlock formulas use the most widely available, abundant, ecologically sustainable building materials on Earth. EarthBlock has the lowest embodied energy of any modern, scalable, construction material.

REGENERATIVE

Anteros EarthBlocks are 100% biodegradable, non-toxic and will reintegrate into the earth from where they came. In this context, EarthBlock can be considered a cradle-to-cradle product.

PASSIVE SYSTEM

EarthBlock walls offer special features that traditional materials such as cement, polystyrene and wood do not. They include “EVAPORATIVE COOLING, “HIGH THERMAL MASS” and “PHASE CHANGE” capability, all passive systems harvesting and regenerating nature and energy. Characteristics that other materials cannot duplicate.

PROVEN

Anteros EarthBlock is the largest, most experienced, and most expert manufacturer of stabilized compressed earth blocks (SCEB’s) in Mexico. We have 0ver 30 + proof of concept projects in the BCS region and have manufactured over a million units of SCEB.

EarthBlock outperforms concrete block in heat transfer, humidity control, energy savings and strength.

EarthBlocks help regulate heat, cold indoor temperatures, and humidity, saving you on electricity and building life-cycle costs, making you comfortable year-round.

Not just for houses; EarthBlock can be used for perimeter walls, patios and more.

Polystyrene

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.

Cement

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).
