BioMimicry Boards

Research on treatment of agri-wastes/residue to replace particle board bound with bio resins has been carried out in India since the late 1970s.

Since the green and clean movement was nascent during those days, most of this work was not commercialized. Since 2007, The Founders committed pioneering work and resources to monetize this potential. The team compromises world class leadership in both wood technology and a separate research head in adhesive technology that started pioneering research in a variety of adhesives and bio resins in 1946.

Chloro Earth’sTM research and development, including process technology and laboratories, are located at Peenya, in Bangalore, in India’s high tech capital. The most important activities are further development of our environmentally friendly wood treatment methods, material characteristics and process development and optimization from different agri– residues.

The chemistry and material composition the priorities include, but is not limited to:

  • New crop science research that identifies agri-residue’s ligno-cellulite properties, fuel properties and industrial applications.
  • Agri-residue anatomy and germ plasm research on raw materials and various hybrids.
  • Testing and documentation of these properties with leading Agri- Research Institutes.
  • Production and testing of samples for customers and end users.
  • Evaluation of systems for surface treatment and carpentry.
  • Characterisation and optimization of adhesive treatment(s).

Process technology priorities:

  • Process design and planning of new production composites from various agri-wastes.
  • Process development and optimization of process steps with various Bamboo initiatives in India
  • Evaluation and qualification of process equipment and suppliers,
  • Technical process support in plant operations and indigenous of equipment

 

GeoPolymers

The steel and Portland Cement Industry consumes excessive amounts of energy and water which eviscerates planet resources. India has the largest blanket of Basalt in the world and lies un-utilised to play a significant role in a global thrust towards a sustainable economy. Use of Basalt products can replace 25% of India’s steel output. GeoPolymers can replace a substantial portion of Portland cement as well.Producing GeoPolymers and Basalt Rebars at a fraction of costs compared to conventional building materials should be an important contributor to 3600 or circular economy.We have tied up with the leading global research scientists to introduce Basalt and GeoPolymers as alternatives to Steel and Portland cement in areas of roads and other infrastructure projects that India so badly needs.These technologies can also be deployed to build rapid low cost pre-fab housing for displaced populations as well.
