Biomason and StoneCycling Announce Partnership

Today, Biomason and StoneCycling — two of the world’s most innovative sustainable building material companies — announce a collaborative partnership to drive Europe’s construction industry closer to a planet-friendly model.

The partnership will combine StoneCycling’s commercial network and aesthetic knowledge with Biomason’s revolutionary biocement® technology platform. The initial work will focus on incorporating this technology into new StoneCycling products.


Biomason, headquartered in Durham, North Carolina, United States, is the only company in the world employing biology to produce cement. Since 2012, the company has used microorganisms to grow sustainable, structural biocement in ambient temperatures, harnessing the power of biotechnology to reinvent traditional cement and offer a planet-friendly alternative.

StoneCycling, headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, was founded in 2013 by Ward Massa and Tom van Soest with a mission to create new, high-quality building materials made from construction, demolition, and industrial waste instead of scarce raw materials. StoneCycling introduced their first product, the WasteBasedBrick®; a brick made from at least 60% waste, in 2016 and completed their first project in the same year. Sales have doubled every year since.

Ward Massa, CEO StoneCycling:

“We are excited to announce our new partnership with Biomason. Together with our strong global network of pioneering architects, real estate developers, retail clients, and builders, we will push hard for a fast transformation of the construction sector.

We will be working closely together with Biomason to incorporate their unique technology into our portfolio of groundbreaking products and are looking forward to propelling the adoption of low-carbon building materials in the construction industry. Stay tuned for an official launch announcement soon.”
