At alterBiota we make the construction industry greener 

Build Better

alterBiota is a green materials company focused on cost effective concrete decarbonization.

Concrete is one of the most ubiquitous materials on earth but making it is extremely carbon-intensive. Through an innovative and highly scalable approach we make a natural admixture called hydrous Bio Graphene Oxide (hBGO) that enables concrete producers to use less Portland cement while storing stable, biomass derived carbon permanently in concrete infrastructure.

hBGO is remarkably easy to use – just like other liquid admixtures – and does not negatively affect other properties of fresh or hardened concrete. 

Adding a dose of liquid bio-graphene admixture to a typical load of concrete enhances compressive strength allowing for reduction of levels of Portland cement, the carbon intensive binder in concrete. 

Unlike other concrete decarbonization technologies, hBGO does not come with a hefty green premium, and concrete producers benefit from carbon credits associated with cement avoidance.

With alterBiota, concrete producers and their customers reduce their carbon footprints and we all benefit from more sustainable growth.

Our circular manufacturing process is sustainable, efficient, and revolutionary.

We diversify revenue by turning byproducts into climate solutions for some of the world’s most carbon-intensive industries.

Circular Manufacturing in Action

Atmospheric CO2 by-products can be utilized in a number of industrial
applications like greenhouse, manufacturing and beverage canning.

Hydrogen by-products can flow back to fuel fleet vehicles
in the milling process as well as other industries.

Our HBGO goes into the concrete industry to improve the flexural, compressive and sheer strength
of concrete to reduce the amount needed and saving costs while reducing carbon footprint.

Utilizing milling industry by-products turns waste into 100% usable outputs.

Hydrogen by-products can be liquified and stored offsite and supplied into other industries.

Additional opportunities for hBGO are in feedstock and agricultural applications.

We use a circular economy approach to our entire business because we believe in extracting maximum value out of the resources at our disposal. Using by products from the forestry industry and applying our own ingenuity, we create a proprietary product capable of drastically decarbonizing the construction industry with stronger, greener concrete. In addition, we’re careful to ensure the useful by products of our production are put to good use. Those include hydrogen that can be used as fuel and industrial CO2 that can be used in greenhouses, beverage production, and concrete producers.
