Baltix bio composites
Baltix manufactures four types of bio composite panels; two are made from renewable bio materials and two from post-consumer waste.
EcoSunflower: Manufactured from sunflower seed hulls, the panels resemble traditional burled wood and as such are a good alternative to specifying hardwood panels. Following the extraction process for oil, the remaining hulls are incinerated and the resulting CO2 release is harvested.
EcoWheat: Manufactured from wheat straw and chaff (i.e. agricultural waste) and an eco-friendly binder. The fiber is generally plowed back into the wheat fields. EcoWheat panels are comparable to wood in surface texture, moisture resistance and weight and can be specified as an alternative to MDF.
Recycled Newspaper: Recycled paper products with added soy-based resin and colour additives. Free from VOCs. Has a similar aesthetic to exotic hardwood.
Recycled Plastic: Perma-poly plastics manufactured using 98% post-consumer and post-industrial recycled plastic. These boards are durable, resistant to wear and require no additional finish coats.
The environmental benefits of specifying a bio composite panel are:
