In the autumn of 1974 a group of young men drove a herd of cattle through the mud fields to produce the rammed earth bricks. This primitive method of converting the earth into the construction material has left a lasting impression on the founder.
In summer of 1976 the young man experimented with mixing rammed soil with rice straws, dried leaves, lime and cow dung to create the first modified clay wall which could withstand all-year-round weather conditions.
In 2003 the founder set up the EOSD Lab in Guangzhou specialized in the soil properties studies and the way of converting the common earth soil into the industrial raw material.
In 2004 the lab moves to Los Angeles, USA to facilitate the founder’s budding vision.
In May 2006 the innovative elastic and functional modified soil (Modified Clay or MC) production technology that can replace cement and asphalt was granted US, EU and China patents. This initial type of material was intended for the pavement of the private and municipal roads use.
