Global trend forecaster Stylus seems to understand the potential of Made of Air very well:
The Made of Air material is made from waste biomass that has absorbed CO2 during its lifetime (plants naturally absorb CO2 by photosynthesis). It’s baked in an oxygen-free oven to form a stable carbon char – a controlled process that means the material generates negative carbon emissions due to absorbing more carbon dioxide than it emits.
The result is a black, fire-retardant material that can be shaped into panels, reformed and recycled. Although it’s in the early stages of development, the material can be adapted to suit different applications, such as a replacement for fillers in products like plasterboard or for whole material products like cladding tiles.
The studio believes it has the potential to replace existing CO2-producing materials used in the construction industry, such as MDF board, while also acting as a carbon-negative material agent to help cut down the carbon footprint of building projects.
