Industrial Nature

Manufacturer of innovative and highly sustainable construction materials.


The company has researched and developed three types of insulating crop-based construction blocks. These are unique in that they both insulate, store heat, provide structure and passively regulate temperature and humidity – all with local and natural materials. They outperform conventional insulation materials and have a better than zero carbon footprint due to the carbon sequestration in the crop-based aggregate. They are also better than zero waste because they can be reprocessed or recycled at end of life. They are designed to positively disrupt the global mainstream building sector.
