The principal engineer of the company Peter Lewis has invented RePlast. RePlast has gone through a process that manages to compress sea plastic into variously shaped blocks of different density. It has been described as an almost 100% carbon neutral, non-toxic manufacturing process. The use of RePlast blocks can contribute to LEED Certification having 95% lower greenhouse gas emissions than the traditional concrete block. The material can be customized for use in other types of construction projects and with such flexibility, this building-unit represents the next wave of future sustainable construction.
