to design, optimize and bring into widespread use a portfolio of high-performing, cost-competitive, and easy-to-use construction and infrastructure materials with dramatically improved human and environmental safety profiles.
Collaborative Aggregates LLC formed in late 2014 to commercialize the Green Chemistry construction products and infrastructure materials formulated by the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry. Collaborative Aggregates LLC is part of the Cthulhu Ventures portfolio of companies as is Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry. James Babcock, chief executive officer for Collaborative Aggregates remains involved in the venture-capital activities of the closely held Cthulhu Ventures based in Mill Valley, California.

James and Jay maintain their offices at the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry lab and office facility in Lowell, Massachusetts.
Dr. John Warner and Jim Babcock established the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry in 2007. Warner Babcock Institute is a for-profit invention factory that designs and develops functional, cost-effective and sustainable technology solutions across all industries that are touched by chemistry. Construction-related chemical technologies invented at Warner Babcock Institute are moved forward to field development and commercialization by Collaborative Aggregates LLC. John Warner and his team are currently supporting Collaborative Aggregates LLC with the Delta S and Delta Mist asphalt rejuvenator product adoption by the road & bridge construction and maintenance stakeholders.
A second product technology that Warner Babcock has invented under the Collaborative Aggregates umbrella is a formaldehyde-and isocyanate-free adhesive resin system designed for use in a variety of engineered wood products.
Beyond Benign is an IRS 501c3 non-profit organization that envisions a world where the chemical building blocks of products used every day are healthy and sustainable for humans and the environment. Founded by Dr. Amy Cannon and Dr. John Warner in 2007, their mission is to develop and disseminate resources that empower educators, students and the community to practice sustainability through green chemistry. Beyond Benign partners with educators in K-12 and higher education to provide the next generation of inventors, scientists and citizens with the scientific skills and knowledge to invent, design and choose products through the lens of sustainability and the chemical sciences.
