Throughout time, straw has been used as a building material with great success. After researching and studying a dormant technology that was originally invented in Sweden during the 1930′s, Enviro Board developed, perfected and patented a new manufacturing process that converts many types of waste fiber into a durable panel membrane. Buildings constructed in the 1930′s with the original fiberboard panel technology are still in use today.
To date, in excess of nine million dollars has been raised to research, construct, patent and trade mark the new Enviro Board technology. The new Enviro Board technology is able to process up to a ton of straw at one time and converts many varieties of these agricultural waste fibers such as rice, wheat, rye, barley and oat straws; flax; sugar cane; elephant grass; and sisal into low-cost, environmentally friendly building panels.
