Where We Are

Ideas are the root of innovation.

When Lisa asked EnviroDiamond’s founder Daren Swanson the billion dollar question, “Can’t you just pull the carbon out of carbon dioxide and stack it somehow?” he responded innovatively.  An idea was born.

For whatever the reason, Daren’s training and experiences lead him to discover an entirely new field of explosives and realm of materials synthesis.  The technology he invented is an explosive that can be used to produce rare compounds and important structures that can improve many aspects of manufacturing, microelectronics and success in medical research.

Nanodiamond, graphene, oxides found in meteorites  or rare parts of the world… all of this came from an idea triggered by a question.

To date, EnviroDiamond has achieved the following:

  1. Patents granted in 27 countries: Canada, US, Mexico, South Africa, China, Japan, India and 20 European countries.
  2. Over 50 successful detonations, which have produced many kilograms of unique materials.
  3. Numerous analyses showing nanodiamond, nano to small micron particle sizes of oxides, presence of ferromagnetic carbon material, amazing polishing capabilities and rare compounds/structures.

Latest: There are many products currently in development  and a new remarkable powder we have  produced from detonations of aluminum + magnesium + dry ice.  This combination makes diamond enhanced spinel.
