Bill Gates gets it: concrete, steel, wood - the stuff we currently make our cities from - simply emit too much greenhouse gas. This is precisely the problem Made of Air can help solve. Our biochar-based material is, in fact, carbon-negative and therefore ideal for building the cities of the 21st century.
Made of Air is a revolutionary material - converting CO2 into materials for the built environment. In the first study in our "Creating Regenerative Cities Now" series, we bring to life how Made of Air applications can be applied throughout the city to help meet climate targets. This document is a provocation and asks the citizens of NYC to re-imagine how their city could use advanced circular materials to reduce CO2. We show how New York can take the lead, but at the same time, the principles in this document can be applied to any city in the world. Download it (pdf) here!
Exciting times! Made of Air is competing with four other finalists for the $100,000 GovTechPrize at the 2019 World Government Summit. You can support Made of Air with your online vote now! Check out our pitch video below. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, February 12. Fingers crossed!
