Bio-Composite Roofing

Several bio-composites are used in roofing. Sustainable bamboo can be pressed and mixed with resins to form light, strong and impact-resistant roofing panels. Roof sheathing can also be sustainable. Environ Biocomposites and other companies use wheat and other fast-growing fibers to make sustainable particleboard or plywood replacements. Environ said its Microstrand sustainable building materials are lighter and stronger than traditional wood products, and emit no volatile organic compounds.
