Filtrexx is founded upon a vision of Clean Water, Clean Soils, Healthy Food, and Happy People. Filtrexx founder Rod Tyler, an agronomist, understood fully that the use of organics for environmental applications—to retain storm water, filter and bioremediate, and establish vegetation—would work better than the ineffective, man-made products already accepted by the engineering community. In 2001 he harnessed these properties to invent the compost filter sock. After years of research and performance testing, the data is indisputable–Filtrexx technology is not only the greenest sediment and erosion control technology on the market, but also the best performing.

What began in 1989 as a Cargill research project looking for innovative uses of carbohydrates from plants as feedstock for more sustainable plastics has quickly matured into the Ingeo product Natureworks is known for today. Natureworks is the first to offer a family of commercially available biopolymers derived from 100 percent annually renewable resources with cost and performance that compete with petroleum-based packaging materials and fibers. We apply our unique technology to the processing of natural plant sugars to create the proprietary polylactide polymer marketed under the Ingeo brand name.

Green roofs differ from a natural environment as they are on top of a building and are not connected to the natural ground. Rooflite® Certified Green Roof Media is lightweight and performance characteristics have been optimally engineered for this unique environment. It is critical that Rooflite® soils can drain and retain water simultaneously and that they work even in very shallow systems. Rooflite® products must also function long-term without jeopardizing the building below. Healthy plant growth and proper green roof performance strongly depend on using the right growing media.
