About MetaMateria

MetaMateria Technologies is a privately held Advanced Materials company focused on the development of high performance, cost-effective solutions for environmental applications that improve water quality. MetaMateria has both considerable expertise in the use of nano-materials, as well as developing game-changing materials that enhance their performance. Unique process technology has been developed by key staff since 2003. Patents exist and others pending. Wide spread applications exist for our products and technology. While clean water is our primary focus, technology exists to make specialized materials, such as high performance superconductive powders and other specialty materials. 

MetaMateria strives to benefit other lives through cleaner water and materials. Emphasis is given to expand the use of its nutrient reduction products. We usually work with Partners who serve existing markets and want to provide their customers with better alternatives to improve water quality.

Revenue is from commercial sales of environmental products and engineering services and from government grants, industrial support and private investment for development and commercialization of its technology.

MetaMateria’s strategy for commercialization is to establish partnerships with organizations and individuals, including investors, who take advantage of synergy created by integration of our products with environmental systems or equipment in order to provide competitive advantages and new market growth. Bioremediation and phosphorus removal/recovery products are now sold in the U.S., with a limited expansion in other countries, including China.
