TYPHABOARD is a NEW ARCHITECTURE MATERIAL – highly durable, healthy and 100% ecological.
TYPHABOARD is made from typha (cattail), a plant that grows quickly and easily in all kinds of marshes throughout the world. Typha production fits perfectly with sustainable landscape management. Therefore the German Federal Environmental Foundation (DBU) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP are supporting the development of TYPHABOARD.
