Applications

The construction industry is faced with depleting resources, heightened environmental concerns, high costs, and deteriorating product quality. The United Nations estimates that worldwide housing shortfall exceeds one billion units and is growing.

The GreenMachine and the associated TerraBuilt Construction System enable construction of high quality, low cost structures made of long lasting materials that save life cycle energy costs, are durable, fire and disaster resistant as well as environmentally sustainable. The cornerstone of the Terrabuilt Construction System is the one-ton hydraulic GreenMachine. This machine produces structural, precision engineered, tongue and groove compressed earth blocks (TerraBricks) that are stabilized with small quantities of cement. Dimensional accuracy enables dry stack construction of walls, largely eliminating the use of mortar and need for skilled labor. The GreenMachine brings the time-honored earth block building process into the 21st century.
