The Composite that’s as Equally Strong as Concrete
Sustainability is more than a trend, it’s an innovative revolution. CRIATERRA develops Advanced Earth Technologies and cutting-edge techniques that use raw materials that return to the earth as nutrients. This is known as circular earth technology which eliminates the risk of waste post-use. Due to their makeup, CRIATERRA’s specially designed eco-composites are as strong as cement. The material’s high strength is achieved by a mix of 100% natural elements, addition of natural reinforcing fibers, and by applying state-of-the-art production methods that optimize the strong cohesion forces of clay materials. This means they can be used in structurally strong building products including construction and interior design.
What are the Natural Benefits
Unlike ceramics or cement in which natural resources are burnt to become dead matter,CRIATERRA saves 90% on energy, 92% Greenhouse gas emissions and is 100% biodegradable. Up to 70% of the composite material content is sourced from waste or discarded materials such as digging excess and agricultural waste. This is an important step to making buildings more sustainable.

Its eco-innovative technology allows the mass production of constructive three-dimensional elements as well as interior products. Available as panels, hollow building blocks, tiles, and masonry blocks in 16 different blends of soils and natural fibers. It features 4x lower thermal conductivity than concrete and good fire resistance making it a suitable candidate for thermal insulation products. It is possible to customize the size, shape, 3D structure, texture, color and, to some extent, the thermal conductivity of the material depending on the application.
