Yes. Greenix Panel structures require considerably less framing lumber than a conventionally framed building. This saves trees. OSB is made from the 37% of a tree that is normally waste from making solid lumber. Solid lumber, as used in typical wood-frame homes, requires 63% of the wood from harvested trees. Greenix Panels are pre-cut in the factory, result in far less “job-site waste.” The small amount of wood scraps resulting from the Panel manufacturing process at the manufacturing facility is used for other products or recycled, rather than going into landfills.
We use a low-pressure foaming system designed to maximize the advantages of the foam properties. The cured foam is inert and non-hazardous. The foam process used in Greenix Panels uses no “ozone depleting substances”, such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), hydrobromofluorocarbons (HBFCs), halon, methyl bromide, carbon tetrachloride, or methyl chloroform. Only EPA-approved materials are used in the manufacture of Greenix Panels. Greenix Panels polyurethane foam contains no formaldehyde. We also offer foam that contains agricultural-based oils derived from soy beans, corn, sugar beets, and/or sugar cane. The foaming equipment is cleaned with hot water and a detergent, and the small amount of residue is safely disposable.
