What if our materials could help us heal?

Nature has been keeping a secret from us: AirCarbon.

Most people didn't grow up learning about PHB, but that might change.  It turns out PHB is made in almost all known life on earth.


We use natural ocean microorganisms to make PHB from air and greenhouse gas
and call it AirCarbon.

Nice to see you, AirCarbon. 

AirCarbon is PHB and PHB is made naturally in almost all known life on Earth, from microorganisms and trees to the human body:

a material that connects us.

A material made by life, AirCarbon is FDA food contact approved:

and ready to mingle.

As a result, we can melt AirCarbon and cool it into everything from fiber and sheet to solid parts, and use it to replace things like synthetic plastic and animal leather.

Thanks, nature.

One word: biomaterial.

Unlike synthetic materials, the AirCarbon molecule is a molecule made throughout nature, and can be re-consumed by natural microorganisms like leaves or twigs, enabling life to restore itself.

From this to that: meltable means endless possibility. 

In a stroke of good fortune, it just so happens that AirCarbon is naturally meltable.

Synthetic plastic doesn't go away because

it doesn't occur naturally in the environment. 

 

AirCarbon is different.

 

Because AirCarbon is PHB and PHB is natural, nature knows what to do with it, and natural microorganisms can consume it as food for regrowth.

Circular recycling.

 

Modern recycling has been challenging because it is complicated: we want to help change that by recycling in the way nature has been recycling since the beginning: using biological digestion.

Like a leaf.

With AirCarbon, we have the opportunity to recycle how nature recycles: anaerobically digesting it into greenhouse gas, and using that gas to make new AirCarbon.  

 

It is a future we are working to make happen, and a future that AirCarbon enables.

When made with renewable power, the production of AirCarbon is a carbon-negative process, capturing or destroying more CO2e than was emitted to make it.

We work with independent third parties, such as SCS Global Services and Carbon Trust, to calculate our carbon footprint.

Like the mighty pinecone, we're carbon-negative, and on a mission to help reverse climate change and plastics pollution by turning air and greenhouse gas into AirCarbon. 

Nature's heartbeat is carbon-negative. 

To make a pinecone, a tree turns greenhouse gas into a solid material: a net carbon-negative process.
