Modern Mill, manufacturer of innovative wood substitute ACRE, stole the show at Fast Company’s 2022 World Changing Ideas Awards and won the overall Best Mid-Sized Business Award plus five other nominations.

The awards honor clean technology, innovative corporate initiatives, brave new designs for cities and buildings, and other creative works that are supporting the growth of positive social innovation, tackling social inequality, climate change, and public health crises.

ACRE is a new building material made from upcycled rice hulls in a zero-waste environment, offering the warmth and beauty of real wood with all the conveniences of traditional composites. It is available as decking, dimensional lumber, trim boards, sheet goods, and siding.
