Processing local waste
& natural resources to use in
sustainable living environments.
Our on-going EarthCycle Technologies research program has identified and is presently assembling a complementary set of cutting edge, independently developed, well proven material processing systems.
When combined these state-of-the-art systems demonstrate a unified potential to cost-effectively process, recycle, and purify local waste streams and naturally occurring resources into our essential geo-ceramic raw materials, with the added benefit of simultaneously providing a wide variety of other life-enhancing raw materials, clean water and bio-fuel.

non-toxic ceramic coatings.
Durable, non-cracking, geopolymer coatings are currently being developed and tested for a variety of unique uses; including protective steel, concrete, and wood thin-coatings that chemically bond to the substrate providing high abrasion, heat, salt, mold, & moss resistance.
Modular IT-controlled blending.
In collaboration with 3is Technologies, we are currently designing an IT controlled Blending system with the added attraction of being able to, within a modular design, go directly from (1) the local assembly of raw materials, (2) into custom blended C3Ceramic formulas, (3) into 3D printed plastic molds, (4) into finished building products that are ready to use in hours not days.

enhance plant growth.
An eco-safe geo-polymer blend designed for use in hydroponic food and aquaponic fish growing systems. To date our research indicates that our phosphate-bonded cements retain their superior qualities underwater while resisting mold, moss, and barnacle infestation. GrowRok promotes healthy plant growth while simultaneously providing durable, toxic-free ponds for fish and shrimp production.
Within our aquaponic/hydroponic research we are exploring the distinct possibility that our GrowRok formula's create a paramagnetic environment that aids plant growth. As very little research has been done in this promising area we look forward to sharing what we learn.
The Bionic Arc is planned to be Taiwan's first positive energy building. The Eco-tower generates solar and wind-power coupled with planted living facades. We hope to be the locally produced concrete/coating material of choice.
Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSC)
Can you imagine a future in which our concrete roadways and buildings convert sunlight into enough low cost electricity for everyone to live a modern self-sufficient lifestyle?
In the United States alone, paved surfaces cover roughly 50,000 square miles; an area larger than the state of Ohio. It would require only about 10,000 square miles of solar panels to generate enough electricity to power the entire US.
Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSC's) are composed of crystalline nano-particles coated in a molecular dye that absorbs sunlight; similar to the chlorophyll in green leaves.
The superb light-harvesting characteristics of natural perovskite crystal structures have lead to dramatic advances in DSSC efficiency. From 14% upon their discovery in 2012 to over 20% in 2014; the fastest that a solar technology has ever advanced.
SolarRok is another exciting area in which we are researching and developing in co-operation with associates, businesses, and universities.
The future is now!
C3's high strength eco-friendly ceramic cement blends are the key to a long-awaited advancement in the art of home building. By replacing drywall, insulation material, lumber, paint, and shingles in our built environment with pure geo-ceramic composites we can substantially raise the bar for true sustainability.
As a C3 alliance company, Geoship is a Washington state Social Purpose Corporation currently developing GeoRok composite building panels in the form of a geodesic dome (as graphically pictured); one of multiple building design options. Compared to the average American house; Geoship anticipates a 50% reduction in cost and a 98% reduction in embodied CO2.
GeoRok composite panels will be exceptionally strong, lightweight, super insulated panels that look and feel like stone. They will interlock and seal into beautiful and highly efficient homes that are easily constructed by owner-builders. And like all GeoRok homes, GeoDomes will be remarkably fireproof, mold proof, free from VOC's, and made to last for many lifetimes with very little maintenance.
"The geodesic dome is the strongest, lightest, and most efficient means of enclosing space known to man."
