BioMason Creates Bricks with Bacteria
Ginger Kreig Dosier is a co-founder of BioMason, a company which uses natural bacteria as a glue to make bricks. The chosen bacteria are non-harmful, not genetically modified, and can set the brick in ambient temperature in two days. This process is much more environmentally friendly compared to the common alternatives because it does not release carbon to maintain 2000 °F temperatures. Additionally, the manufacturing process is simple and can be reproduced across the globe with little machinery and infrastructure.
