ABSTRACT
The article reports on the EcoRock, Serious Material Inc.'s energy efficient drywall patent which is the first important upgrade in this material since it was invented in the 1890s in the U.S. EcoRock uses 90% less energy to create and is made of 80% recycled material. Serious Material chief executive officer (CEO) Kevin Surace said that putting EcoRock into a building is a green job as it uses far less energy to create than conventional wallboard.
