Palmeco Master Board is a building material that is composed of palm fibre (collected waste from palm oil plantations in Malaysia).
The material is non-combustible, biological resistant, and moisture resistant. The technology is migratable, meaning that it can be modified to use local waste products in other parts of the world. The panels are designed to replace typical organic (plywood and MDF) and inorganic (Cement Board and AAC) options.
Palmeco is a Hong Kong based company that focuses on innovative green building materials through research and development.
They state, "Our production processes (including mixing, rolling and curing) are low energy. These processes use little water and no gas emissions. Our products use 90% less energy than cementitious building materials, significantly reducing carbon impact on the environment."
