Natura Eco isn’t a simple manufacturer of Additive Manufacturing systems… we are a Data Company, with a clear goal of an autonomous construction industry driven by real-time data acquisition
We already developed a prototype (DLL1.0 - Gantry system) and a proprietary material (NEcocrete - 10125 PSI), printed a full-sized house in 21 hours (December 2021), and have more than 2M EUR projects in the pipeline for 2022-2024 (national and international). Also received a Mini Grant funding for building our DLL2.0 printer.
Problem or Opportunity
The main issues of the traditional construction industry are lack of labor-force, almost no automation or digitization, low productivity, CO2 footprint + waste amount, breaking of deadlines, no predictability and the amount of injuries & deaths globally.
Solution (product or service)
Autonomous construction sites with hybrid machines (gantry + robotics), where every machine is feeding our server with real-time data about every step of every project, therefore growing smarter and more autonomous in the end. Cyber-physical systems with high level A.I. provide a safer, cleaner and more profitable construction ecosystem.
Primarily we see our AMC Technology (machines and software) being sold (directly and through distributor networks like Knauf PFT at this moment) to parties like construction companies and/or academic institutions. Secondly, a large portion is offering printing services to end-customers (B2B & B2C) with our partners (housing solutions and infrastructure/industrial products). Lastly, developing courses and workshops for the masses is another cash-flow step.
