Reasons to Invest

Market Opportunity & Timing: The U.S. is poised to spend Trillions of dollars on infrastructure over the next decade and as the concrete industry scrambles to lower its carbon footprint, we believe AquiPor is well-positioned with its technologies to address these large market opportunities.
Green Concrete Technology: The current cement industry is responsible for 8% of global CO2 emissions each year. AquiPor’s permeable concrete not only manages stormwater runoff relative to where it falls, but it is produced with upcycled materials and a proprietary, low-carbon cement. This technology could do away with the need for highly-pollutive cement plants.
Team: AquiPor’s founding team has years of experience in the green infrastructure sector and the Company’s Advisors and Directors are professionals from the construction, concrete, mining, engineering, and financial industries.

AquiPor’s Plan to Revamp Green Infrastructure in our Cities 


 
  
The physical infrastructure connecting our communities is deteriorating. Impervious concrete and asphalt covers our cities, contributing to stormwater runoff pollution, urban flooding, and heat island effects. Traditional concrete is one of the most consumed materials in the world and has one of the largest industrial carbon footprints. Our permeable concrete technology not only allows stormwater to soak into it preventing runoff, but is made with a proprietary low-carbon cement and reclaimed materials. With this technology, we plan to transform traditional hard surfaces- such as streets and sidewalks - into stormwater infiltration corridors, while helping to decarbonize the concrete industry in the process.

Stormwater Runoff Pollution, Urban Flooding, and Climate Change


Stormwater runoff and urban flooding are wreaking havoc on our natural water systems by stressing the physical infrastructure of our cities more than any time in history. The combination of rapid urbanization, increased average rainfall, and deteriorating infrastructure has led to the discharge of over 10 TRILLION GALLONS of untreated stormwater, wastewater, and sewage into clean water bodies every year in the U.S. 



At the same time, the cement industry is responsible for 8% of global CO2 emissions. AquiPor’s permeable concrete technology and engineering solutions are being developed to hopefully manage stormwater and urban flooding naturally. And, the cement technology that goes into all of our products is extremely low-carbon. 




AquiPor's Permeable Concrete and Engineering Toolkit




*The above is a rendering of a future product. Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development.

AquiPor’s permeable concrete technology is being developed to be as strong as normal concrete, but it is water-permeable and allows stormwater to flow through it and back into the ground naturally. What makes AquiPor’s material unique is that it features sub-micron porosity, with pore size small enough to filter out most dirt, debris, and particles without clogging. 

In conjunction with our permeable concrete technology, our novel engineered designs can help manage large volumes of stormwater from roadways, parking lots, and alleyways.  With site-specific engineering, AquiPor material can be utilized to get filtered stormwater back into natural soils and eventually to our aquifers. g

Inherently Green Concrete

Our advanced solution to old-school concrete  has the potential to embody to embody a fraction of the carbon footprint that normal concrete does, but still maintains strength and durability that rivals high-strength concrete. AquiPor’s concrete is made from reclaimed aggregate and a proprietary cement. Unlike portland cement, this low-carbon cement does not require a cement plant, and instead, utilizes industrial commodities that are sourced from the existing resource base. 





US Infrastructure and Construction Materials: $1 Trillion+ Aggregate Market Opportunity

AquiPor’s market opportunity comes at the intersection of water infrastructure, municipal stormwater, permeable pavement, and construction materials. As the U.S. looks to revamp critical infrastructure in the face of climate change, Billions will be spent to improve water infrastructure in the next ten years, with an estimated $32 Billion needed specifically for municipal stormwater upgrades each year.

As more cities adopt Green Infrastructure as an approach to stormwater management strategy, the projected value of the global permeable pavement market is expected to eclipse $22 Billion by 2026, while construction materials as a whole is expected to surpass $1.4 Trillion.

E.P.C.M. Project Contracts

AquiPor plans to operate as an engineering, procurement, and construction management (E.P.CM) company. In this model, we will negotiate project contracts with owners on select green infrastructure projects. We will work with our value chain partners to ensure quality control of each project that we undertake by approving the project engineering, product quality, and construction. 

As an E.P.CM, AquiPor believes it can maintain more control over its own projects and can ensure proper design, installation, serviceability, and maintenance over the lifespan of each project. 

We anticipate earning revenues through cost-plus contracts where we coordinate project design and engineering, procure all materials, and oversee project construction to ensure best practices.

Our initial target market will be urban and suburban neighborhoods, Homeowners’ Associations, and master planned community developers.  

A Next-Generation Approach to Infrastructure Development

Our E.P.CM approach also lends itself to a project financing model that we believe will speed up the adoption of our technologies in cities. We intend to work with value-chain partners and preferred turnkey suppliers to design, procure, and construct green infrastructure projects directly.  We plan to work with both private finance companies and public agencies to initiate, finance, and deliver these projects throughout the U.S. 

Licensing

In addition to the E.P.CM model, AquiPor plans to standardize its permeable paver technology and license it to select manufacturers and resellers in North America. The paver market is mature and ripe for innovation. We anticipate products made with AquiPor’s technology selling for a premium over current pavers. 

*The above graphic includes a representation of all the possible avenues for revenue, actual results and business plans may differ in the future.


 

Pilot Manufacturing, Mock-Up Project Construction, and Over $3M Raised 


AquiPor is successfully conducting manufacturing R&D of its products with a precast concrete partner and has broken ground on a neighborhood-scale mock up project. Our low-carbon manufacturing process has demonstrated scalability for the concrete industry and we are moving our products into the testing and certification phase. In total, we have raised $3M from strategic industry investors and crowdfund investors (with a successful $1.07M max CF raise in 2020).

  • Pilot Manufacturing & Mock-Up: Over the past 6 months, we have taken our permeable material technology through its engineering and manufacturing paces and construction of our first neighborhood-scale mock up project is underway.



  • Obtained Rights to New Infrastructure Technologies: We have an option in place to obtain the exclusive rights to patent-pending low carbon cement technology and utility infrastructure technologies (grey water redistribution & aquifer recharge, high-speed broadband, and renewable energy) that have the potential to add major value to our business model.


  • Pilot Manufacturing:  We've begun manufacturing R&D with a local precast manufacturing partner and are preparing to scale up manufacturing in 2022.


  • Regulatory Testing: We’ve engaged with an independent engineering firm and stormwater engineer to begin third-party testing and standardization of our permeable hardscape material.


  • Over $3M Raised: Since our inception, we've raised just over $3M total, including a successful $1.07M crowdfund in 2020. This capital has allowed us to achieve important R&D and early manufacturing milestones. In addition to our crowdfund investors, our cap table features strategic and industry investors from the construction, concrete, mining and financial industries.

Developing Better Green Infrastructure and Redefining Outdated Industries

Our permeable concrete technology could potentially replace traditional hard surfaces in cities to help communities manage stormwater pollution and the process in which our material is made can help the concrete industry drastically cut its carbon emissions. Our infrastructure technology toolkit is being developed for large-scale deployment in neighborhoods throughout the U.S. Our last round of funding helped facilitate further development of these technologies, and with this crowdfund we hope to achieve the growth milestones that we are poised for.  

*Comparison data computed based on  preliminary internal testing and management's experience.



Paving the Way to Inherently Green Infrastructure 


AquiPor is on a mission to transform old infrastructure systems into scalable green infrastructure in communities throughout North America. Streets and sidewalks that have traditionally been major contributors of stormwater runoff pollution can now become part of the solution.

CURRENT STAGE

AquiPor is currently in the proof-of-concept stage of business development which includes critical manufacturing R&D of our permeable concrete as well as designing, engineering, and constructing a neighborhood scale demonstration project. Subsequent to construction of the mock up we are targeting green infrastructure project contracts with private and public developers.



Provide Massively Scalable Green Infrastructure for our Communities


Dear current and prospective Investors:

This is a very exciting time at AquiPor. We have a major opportunity to solve some of the most pressing climate-related water challenges facing cities today. Rapid urbanization, extreme weather, and dilapidated infrastructure are stressing our clean water systems like never before.

We have developed our technologies and business model with this in mind, giving communities the ability to manage stormwater right where it falls and naturally recharge groundwater with infrastructure solutions that make our communities more resilient in the face of climate change.

Last year we completed our first successful crowdfund on StartEngine, raising $1.07M from over 2,000 investors. We were blown away by the support and are proud to say that our cap table now consists of thousands of investors that share our vision for the future. I’m happy to report that the funds we raised last year enabled the advanced development of our technologies and markets, and the opportunity to acquire explosive new technologies in solar and broadband that fit seamlessly into our civil construction approach to green infrastructure.

With these technologies in combination with our business model, we believe that we can not only help solve the climate crisis but also make our neighborhoods more financially productive by delivering critical infrastructure that pays for itself.

As we take the next big step and go to market with our solutions, we are now asking our community and new potential investors to join us as we seek to make an impact that can be generational. 

Sincerely,

Greg Johnson

Game-Changing Tech Development: A 'Behind the Scenes' Look

about 1 month ago

On our campaign page and in previous updates, we’ve talked about a proprietary concrete technology of which we hold the option to license exclusively for our permeable concrete products. Today we want to give you a closer look at this technology and discuss why we’re so excited about it.

It is a first-of-its-kind technology that utilizes industrial minerals and a catalyst, eliminating the need for cement plants and the huge amount of CO2 emissions that come with them.

This catalytic concrete also enables significant productivity gains due to the speed in which it cures and gets to early strengths, as evidenced in the time-lapse video below. The concrete block in the video was mixed, poured, and stripped out of its form in less than 30 minutes. 

Even with the low “finishing” heat that our permeable concrete requires to facilitate permeability, our entire process emits dramatically less CO2 and enables much faster curing times than traditional concrete.

As we charge ahead on technical diligence and development, we can’t help but think this technology has tremendous industrial potential. 



AquiPor’s option to license this catalytic concrete is exclusively for permeable aspects with applicability geared towards stormwater management & infiltration, integrated water management & distribution, and other non-structural, permeable uses.

This investment is speculative, illiquid, and involves a high degree of risk, including the possible loss of your entire investment.

Ending the Vicious Cycle of Pollution with State-Of-The-Art Material Technology

about 2 months ago

U.S. cities discharge over 10 Trillion gallons of untreated stormwater, wastewater, and raw sewage into clean waterways every single year. As we've discussed, a big contributing factor to this water pollution is impervious surface coverage in our cities. In the contiguous U.S., impervious surface coverage exceeds 43,000 miles, with nearly 400 miles added each year. Most of this coverage comes in the form of concrete and asphalt pavement. 

Impervious concrete not only generates stormwater runoff pollution, but the production and disposal of concrete is highly pollutive as well. We've talked before about the cement industry's infamous role in greenhouse gas emissions, but many people don't realize that nearly 23 million tons of concrete gets dumped into landfills each year.

At AquiPor, our technologies can address these problems head-on.

Our permeable concrete technology uses upcycled aggregates and industrial byproducts to create a partial zero emission concrete that is poised to change the way cities deal with stormwater runoff, while bringing the industry one step closer to a low-carbon, closed loop process for concrete production.

This is just one way that we can disrupt age-old industrial processes and revamp the physical infrastructure of our cities.

Cleaner Water and Cleaner Air, Made Possible by...Concrete?

2 months ago

The challenging combo of a changing climate, urbanization (millions of miles of impervious pavement in our cities), and outdated infrastructure is leading to dangerous levels of stormwater runoff pollution and urban flooding in our cities. 

 In a vicious cycle, the impervious concrete that contributes to stormwater runoff in our communities is also contributing to unsustainable CO2 emissions due to how it is produced. The cement industry by itself is responsible for 8% of global CO2! 

 AquiPor is tackling both issues with a permeable concrete technology that not only manages stormwater where it falls, but which is made with a partial zero emission cement. Our mission with this technology is to improve the water infrastructure in our cities while simultaneously helping to decarbonize the concrete industry.

Our technology group is working toward a Net-Zero process, which if achieved, would give AquiPor the first Net- Zero permeable concrete on the market. Although the R&D process has been arduous, we believe it’s well worth it.

The Pressing Need for More Resilient Infrastructure

3 months ago

Extreme weather events have become more common every year in regions throughout the world. Major storms like Hurricane Harvey or Sandy garner media headlines for obvious reasons, but a recent report put out by eight U.S. government agencies stated that “moderately damaging" floods that occur once every three years are likely to become ten times more common and that “major” floods that strike every 25 years could strike every five years on average, due to sea level rise. 

It’s been said that water is one of the main ways that climate change expresses itself. Drought in some regions and catastrophic flooding in others. On the heels of deadly flooding in Germany last Summer, our CEO Greg Johnson was even quoted in The Express UK to share his thoughts on the risk of climate vulnerabilities in our communities as extreme weather becomes more common.

Ultimately, it’s time to rethink how we develop the physical infrastructure in our communities so that we're not caught flat footed by unpredictable weather events. Whether that means innovative approaches to stormwater management or utilizing low-carbon technologies in the production of our products, AquiPor is committed to bringing resiliency to the Built Environment in our communities. 




Follow us on Social Media and Say Hello to our Newest Team Member, Hailey!

3 months ago

Hello AquiPor Investors and Friends,

Prior to our first crowdfunding campaign in 2020, AquiPor hardly had any social media presence. After all, who wants to hear about stormwater infiltration and a new kind of concrete?? As it turns out, a lot of people do.

Crowdfund Extension, Updated Campaign Page, and Big Progress to Start the Year

3 months ago

Dear AquiPor investors, followers, and friends:

You may have noticed that we’ve extended our crowdfunding campaign for up to another 60 days in order to raise as close to our $3.93M goal as possible. We’re entering a new phase in the development of our business as we begin negotiating partnership rights with a strategic manufacturing partner and start producing our permeable concrete material in larger volumes for testing, certification, and field installations.

Along with the extension, we’ve made some updates to our campaign page to reflect this recent progress and shine a light on the cement technology we are advancing for our products.

Up to this point we’ve been measured in our announcements regarding this proprietary cement. As it pertains to lowering the emissions of one of the most carbon intensive industries in the world, this cement could prove to be incredibly significant. I’ll be sharing more over the next several weeks as I am able to.

We are looking forward to an incredible 2022!

All the Best,

Next Generation Water Infrastructure

4 months ago

AquiPor is on a mission to improve urban water quality in our communities by managing stormwater runoff pollution, mitigating urban flooding, and recharging aquifers. Our unique permeable material and engineering technologies are being developed to do this at large-scale.

To bolster our technology toolkit, we acquired the option to exclusively license the EPCM rights for U.S. Patent 10,865,547, a distributed water patent that recirculates cleaned wastewater and stormwater back to natural water sources, such as aquifers. 

When designed with our permeable concrete material we believe this technology can be implemented in neighborhoods to create stormwater infiltration corridors for localized aquifer recharge.

The Problem Today:

In most US cities, water is pumped from aquifers for household use and after it’s used it gets processed along with sewage and stormwater at water treatment plants at a very high cost per gallon. Instead of going back into the ground to recharge aquifers, this effluent water is typically discharged into rivers or other water bodies.

At a time when aquifers are being depleted at an unsustainable rate and water consumption is growing at twice the rate of the global population, the value of recharging groundwater cannot be overstated. 

In conjunction with our permeable concrete, the AquiPor system is being developed to infiltrate stormwater right where it falls and to also redistribute cleaned water from the plant back through our system to replenish aquifers right in the neighborhood. 

This is AquiPor’s vision 21st Century urban water infrastructure.

The Current State of the Concrete Industry, and Why it Matters to AquiPor and its Investors

4 months ago

Concrete is one of the most consumed materials in the world. In fact, global demand for concrete is second to only water. Unfortunately, traditional portland cement-based concrete (think of portland cement as the “glue” that puts together concrete) is responsible for over 8% of global anthropogenic CO2 emissions every year. 


On top of that, concrete production also requires huge volumes of freshwater in its production. Some estimates tell us that concrete production requires 1 TRILLION gallons of freshwater annually. This comes at a time when water consumption is growing at twice the rate of the global population


Worldwide, over 10 billion tons of concrete gets poured each year and demand continues to grow. Unfortunately, the current production process for concrete is unsustainable. The industry has a stated goal of net zero CO2 by 2050, which indicates that current technologies are falling short.


Large corporations and billionaires like Bill Gates have gotten behind incremental technology advancements, such as capturing carbon and re-injecting it back into concrete. These attempts are commendable, but they still require portland cement and can’t completely offset the emissions produced in the first place. 


At AquiPor, we believe the path to net zero concrete requires a new type of technology altogether. In early 2021 we acquired the option to license an emerging cement technology that we’ve been vigorously testing and is showing tremendous promise as a technology that can help decarbonize the industry.


This new cement technology is not only inherently low-carbon, but it doesn’t require cement plants for its production at all. Moreover, we can use recycled greywater in our mix designs, something that is not possible with current concrete. As we’ve shown in previous videos, it also does some amazing things in terms of how quickly it sets up and gets to strength, which can potentially bring new efficiencies and productivity gains to the industry. As far as we’re concerned, improved economics and environmental benefits should never be mutually exclusive of one another, and that’s why we’re so bullish on this technology.


We will continue to update you all on progress.


Best,

Greg Johnson

CEO

Pilot Manufacturing Milestone

4 months ago

Happy New Year! 

There's a lot of excitement around our team right now as we transition into the new year. 

We’re happy to say that 2021 proved to be momentous for the AquiPor team. Throughout most of the past year, we worked through trials and tests to come up with the most scalable and efficient manufacturing processes for our permeable concrete material.

We now have a process that can be scaled within the confines of the existing precast industry, but it gets much better than that. The partial zero emission cement technology that we utilize in our concrete is not only low carbon and eco-friendly, but it has the potential to bring unprecedented productivity gains to the industry. 

To see what we mean by that, check out this short video and see how quickly this material sets up and gains strength.



1,000+ Investors in our Current Crowdfunding Round!

5 months ago

We love sending this type of update!

We recently eclipsed 1,000 new investors in our crowdfunding round!

This is very meaningful to us for many reasons. First, we liken the idea of crowdfunding to how the transcontinental railroad was built. I know this might sound strange, but most people don’t realize that it was everyday citizens buying railroad bonds which helped finance the construction of the railroads. Those investments into railroad infrastructure proved to be history-shaping.

As entrepreneurs working on our own set of infrastructure technologies, we understand the value of this. Having a cap table full of thousands of loyal, mission-driven investors and ambassadors gives us a competitive advantage as we build the future. 

Here’s to our incredible investor base! 

P.S. There's still time to sign up for our investor event on Thursday, December 16th. Just click here!



Over $700K Raised in this Crowdfund!

5 months ago

We recently hit the $700K investment milestone and we’d like to take a moment to celebrate each and every one of our investors. You are helping us build something significant and your support is contributing to our progress every single week.

When we opened up this crowdfund, we were in the early stages of test-pilot manufacturing our products at a local precast facility. Since then, we’ve advanced our “green” concrete manufacturing process to the point where it can be scaled into existing manufacturing networks and our products are nearly ready to go into rigorous testing as we get rapidly closer to commercialization.

This has been a very significant milestone for us. After all, it’s one thing to make technology prototypes and it’s another thing entirely to be able to manufacture these products at scale. 

Our investors have had a big role to play in all of this! Every time we disburse funds from our crowdfund, the lion’s share of that capital goes right back into technology, product, and business development. It’s been amazing to see the momentum grow in real time.

We are working on some important developments as it pertains to our supply chain and precast network and have reason to believe that this growth story has just begun.

Words don’t do it justice, but we are grateful for each and every one of you!

Transforming Physical Infrastructure with Innovation

6 months ago

As we continue to take our material technology through its engineering and manufacturing paces, we’re steadily adding segments to our neighborhood mock-up project. 

In this video, our Co Founder and V.P. of Market Development, Kevin Kunz discusses our permeable sidewalk design and how our technologies can enable stormwater management & aquifer recharge right within the existing built environment.

This particular “complete street” proof-of-concept design represents one of many engineering designs that can accompany our permeable hardscape technology.

Each project that we pursue as an Engineering, Procurement, Construction manager (EPCM) will have unique considerations depending on structural, hydrological, and geotechnical analysis, each of which will factor into project design and engineering. Even a basic permeable paver installation requires good design engineering, the right product, and proper installation!

As we continue to make strides with our technology stack, it’s becoming more obvious that our technologies have game-changing potential for our physical infrastructure systems. This makes it even more valuable to develop a business model that ensures quality control throughout our entire value chain, and we are doing just that.


This investment is speculative, illiquid, and involves a high degree of risk, including the possible loss of your entire investment.

The Infrastructure Bill and what it Means to AquiPor

6 months ago

The much anticipated U.S. infrastructure bill was finally signed into law on Monday November, 15th. 

The bill includes $55 billion for water infrastructure, $110 billion for roads and other major physical infrastructure projects, as well as $50 billion for climate resiliency projects. This marks the largest investment in the resilience of physical and natural systems in American history.

These categories are extremely relevant to AquiPor, as our technologies have a direct role to play in each initiative. 

Your continued support is getting us one step closer to realizing our vision of delivering our technology & engineering solutions to projects throughout the country.

Stay tuned for more updates as we build our game-changing toolkit for green infrastructure!

Eco-Friendly Concrete?

6 months ago

Pressure is mounting for the concrete industry to decarbonize. In the U.S. alone, the industry produces 500 million tons of concrete every year, most of which is portland cement-based and highly carbon intensive. 

 

Last week we started to unveil information about an inherently green cement technology that we plan to use in the production of all of our permeable hardscape products moving forward. With an option in place to exclusively license this technology, we have been putting it through its engineering paces and vigorously testing it at our pilot manufacturing facility. The results have been extraordinary. 

 

In addition to the new efficiencies and material performance, here are some key factors that make this cement very different from traditional, high CO2 emitting portland cement: 

 

  • It does not require high energy input to produce (inherently low carbon footprint).

 

  • There is no high heat calcining involved in its production.

 

  • There is no high heat kiln sintering involved in its production.

 

  • There is no need for high energy clinker grinding to make cement powder.

 

  • It can be mixed with recycled aggregates.

 

  • It can be sourced from the existing industrial resources base (potential for rapid economies of scale).


Our northstar is to help solve the climate crisis right in the Built Environment. This means that our solutions need to be both scalable and economic and we’re developing them as such. We look forward to playing a big role in the development of more resilient infrastructure in the years ahead.




COP26 and AquiPor’s Role in Combating Climate Change

6 months ago

As world leaders recently descended upon Glasgow, Scotland to supposedly accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, a lot of talk has centered around the price tag of majorly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The world’s biggest banks, investors, and insurers even signed a coordinated pledge to incorporate emissions reductions into their most fundamental decisions.

This is happening at a time when nearly every G20 country is BEHIND in honoring their original climate commitments, calling into question the government's ability to meet these types of challenges head on. Meanwhile, a recent report from the Boston Consulting Group estimates that it will require investments totaling greater than $100 trillion over the next 30 years to close the climate technology gap.

At AquiPor, we see these grand challenges as major opportunities. We believe we can play an important role by developing the technology toolkit that makes our communities more resilient in the face of climate change, and with a permeable concrete technology that can have a direct impact on reducing industrial carbon emissions. Our investors are playing a big part as well, voting with their wallets to bring these real world solutions to life. 

We don’t know if it will take $100 Trillion to solve this climate crisis over the next 30 years, but we do ask ourselves what the ultimate value will be of a company that can help solve climate change right in the built environment with highly-scalable green infrastructure technologies. We’re excited to find out.

A Revolutionary Cement Technology?

7 months ago

Traditional portland cement (the ingredient used to make concrete) is responsible for 8% of global CO2 emissions annually. This is a staggering number. 

At AquiPor, this is unacceptable. We make our permeable products with a proprietary "green" cement that is both eco-friendly and superior to traditional cement in many ways.

In addition to its environmental advantages, this new cement allows AquiPor material to be poured, set up, and turned out of forms in as little as 30 minutes. This adds new efficiencies to precast concrete manufacturing that has not been possible until now.

This is exactly what we mean when we say we're developing  an “inherently green” technology toolkit. With products that mitigate stormwater pollution and urban flooding, a more efficient production process, and cement technology that has the potential for gigaton-scale impact on carbon emissions, we have been flying high at AquiPor lately.  

Check out the video below to see why we’re so excited about our greener future. 



Sustainable Climate Tech

7 months ago

As we build our Engineering, Procurement, & Construction Management (E.P.C.M.) business model, it’s important to us that we develop each aspect of the business with sustainability in mind.

You may hear us refer to the development of our technologies as “inherently green”. This means creating solutions that are both eco-friendly AND economically robust, while also employing a business model that amplifies both aspects.

Starting with our permeable surface technology, our products utilize construction aggregate that is considered leftover product at quarries. In other words, remnants of rock that has already been drilled for, crushed, and screened, with all of the energy inputs having already gone into the process. 

In the short video below, we are on site at a regional quarry where we access our construction aggregate. In the future, we even plan to access aggregate from old mine sites, helping to clean up waste piles and transform that “waste” into eco-friendly precast material with AquiPor inside. 

AquiPor products made with proprietary cement technology and these reclaimed aggregates opens up a compelling opportunity to tap into economies of scale for industry, while also playing a significant role in confronting climate change in the years to come.




Eclipsing the $500K Investment Milestone!

Matching our Technologies with a Business Model for the Greatest Impact

7 months ago

We frequently get good questions centered around our permeable material technology. It is, afterall, the tip of the spear when it comes to our technology and engineering stack.


While we are certainly proud of our permeable hardscape material, it’s important to understand that we are building an engineering toolkit around the material which we think will open up major and untapped opportunities in green infrastructure. 


To match our technology innovation with a more impactful business model, our plan is to grow into an Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management (EPCM) company that specializes in onsite stormwater infrastructure projects. 


Our plan is to garner specific stormwater projects (both private and public) and work with local engineers to develop and stamp project designs, work with our manufacturing partners to procure the materials made with AquiPor “inside”, and then oversee the construction and installation of each job to guarantee the quality.


We even have future plans to set up an Operations & Maintenance unit to maintain and inspect these projects to ensure they continue to perform optimally over time.


This EPCM model speaks to a much larger market opportunity to tackle green stormwater infrastructure projects at the neighborhood level and make our communities more resilient in the face of climate change. This is where we believe we can make the greatest impact. 


The animated video below gives a very basic look at how neighborhoods can be turned into stormwater infiltration corridors and natural groundwater recharge centers with AquiPor’s solutions, and the construction of our mock-up project will help demonstrate this. 


Stay tuned as we build the future of green infrastructure!

AquiPor in Times Square!?

9 months ago

An AquiPor ad was recently spotted in Times Square in NYC!  Ironically, NYC got blasted with extreme rain and flooding that very same evening. 

These type of weather events are exactly why we’re developing our permeable surface technologies and engineered solutions to manage stormwater and mitigate urban flooding. 

The reality is that the majority of flooding issues in our country occur due to current water infrastructure being completely overwhelmed in the face of modern day storms. Our solutions aren’t a “silver bullet” on their own, but we know they can help cities dramatically. 

Our promise is to continue to work tirelessly and with urgency to build our technologies, raise the capital needed to scale up, and spread awareness about AquiPor until we get our solutions in every single city that needs us....and hopefully get AquiPor on the actual ground in Times Square soon!

Thank you for your support as we continue to build this Company!

On a Mission to Shift Industry Paradigms

9 months ago

Years back, we started AquiPor with an idea to create a permeable surface material that was as strong as concrete, permeable like natural soils, and with the ability to filter out debris and particulate matter without clogging up. On top of that, we wanted our manufacturing process and finished products to be inherently eco-friendly, with little to no carbon footprint. 

To achieve this our R&D cycles were at times painstaking, but they were worth it. We've now advanced our technology into pilot manufacturing  with a concrete manufacturing partner here in Spokane, WA and we're rapidly evolving our process to be scalable at precast plants throughout the country. Your investment dollars are hard at work helping us take the next step as we scale up production and demonstrate our solution to the world!
