Petram Technologies is bringing fresh minds and tools to the world of construction and demolition. We are applying patented approaches to remove unnecessary danger, time, and costs from construction and demolition, and enhancing recycling opportunities. With NASA-funded technology at our fingertips, efficiency and safety no longer has to come at the expense of quality or sustainability.
Founded in January 2017, Petram Technologies is commercializing technology initially developed at Auburn University under funding from NASA. The research completed at Auburn culminated in over 50 successful laboratory experiments and an issued US patent. This research has been successfully replicated at Petram Technologies’ facility. Additional experimentation proved that: 1) rebar and steel beams could be cleanly separated from the concrete, greatly enhancing recycling opportunities, 2) fracture volumes of up to 2 cubic yards per discharge were readily accomplished.
