ArmaTerra wins CleanTech Open Green Building Award

You may remember that we’ve mentioned ArmaTerra Georeinforcing before on this blog when they presented at 1 Million Cups a few months ago.

armaterraThey had just recently entered the CleanTech Open and were looking for feedback to strengthen their business model. It looks like it paid off! ArmaTerra won the Western Region’s Green Building Award.

ArmaTerra uses pieces of old tires to create reinforcement materials for dirt walls and banks. Because the tires are a tough rubber material instead of the traditional metal used currently, there are no rusting issues so dirt walls will stay in place. And because the tires are recycled, the cost of materials is much lower than the traditional metal structures.

We look forward to seeing their growth in the coming years!
