Baltix makes office furniture out of materials
such as sunflower hulls, wheat
strands and recycled newspaper.
Based in Minnesota, Baltix is positioned close to the source of the agricultural
fiber they use, reducing energy used in transportation.
pictured above is built with sunflower board paneling. The hulls
were previously burned as waste.
Baltix uses urethane for bonding the materials together, a chemical that contains
no VOCs or formaldehyde.
