ArchDaily Features Watershed Materials' Mobile Block Production Technology

ArchDaily featured Watershed Materials in a great story on our mobile block production technology that turns excavation waste into building materials. ArchDaily ran this story following their initial feature on Watershed Block published shortly after the Stanford Lasuen project was completed.

"The pop-up plant itself works by applying ultra-high compression to loose excavation spoils, transforming it into a sustainable CMU. The pressure turns the mineral grains into a sort of sedimentary rock, mimicking the natural geological process of lithification. This unique manufacturing technology is the brainchild of Watershed Materials, who previously developed the compression technique in order to reduce the amount of cement used in concrete blocks by 50%."

Thanks to editor Rory Scott and writer Sharon Lam for the great piece.
