How Bricks are Grown

Meet Our Team, Join our Team

bioMASON is dedicated to finding talented, multi-faceted, hard-working and passionate people to join our innovative team. Please visit our Careers page for more information.

bioMASON has developed a technology using microorganisms to grow biocement™ based construction materials. The Company’s products include proprietary manufacturing process and materials used by customers for incorporation in existing facilities or on-site manufacturing. The strength of biocement™ materials is comparable to traditional masonry, and can be used as a green alternative. bioMASON’s products make it possible to manufacture on-site in ambient temperatures using locally available materials, without using fuel for firing the material. bioMASON enables savings in energy costs and a large reduction of carbon emissions.
