Achieving cost parity with wood can provide a fungible structural alternative with significant social, economic, and environmental benefits as a building material.
PROBLEM FOCUS
The embodied carbon of building materials like concrete are a significant climate risk, and builders are looking for sources with a lower lifetime carbon footprint—particularly timber. But even traditional timber has its own adverse environmental impacts.
TECHNOLOGY SOLUTION
RIZOME produces a sustainable, low-embodied carbon engineered bamboo lumber that is stronger, more durable, and more fire-resistant than wood.
