Materials Startup InventWood Makes Wood Stronger Than Steel

InventWood™ is creating prototypes of its revolutionary MettleWood™ material for a range of applications including the construction, automotive, and material sectors that offer substantial benefits over commonly used materials. Its proprietary nanotechnology processes transform natural wood into MettleWood, a material with over 20 times the tensile strength of lumber and almost twice that of steel. The environmental benefits are also clear: using MettleWood in place of just 2% of steel applications in the construction sector could save 800,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions per year, equivalent to taking nearly 174,000 cars off the road.
