Milliken, EnOcean Among BuildingGreen's Top 10 Products for 2007

Each year, BuildingGreen, the publishers of Environmental Building News and the GreenSpec directory of building products, names the top 10 products for green building professionals.

Last year's list included lumber salvaged from beneath man-made lakes; electronic, tint-on-demand glass for windows and skylights; water-conserving showerheads and irrigation controls; high-tech evaporative air conditioners and more.

For its sixth annual award, BuildingGreen included a similar range of products, drawn from more than 200 additions to the GreenSpec database in the past year. Four of this year's winning products this year save energy. Two products save water. Three products are green in part because they are made from recycled or recovered material; two because they avoid hazardous manufacturing or disposal of materials, and one aids in the siting of solar energy systems.

The 2007 Top 10 Products list consists of:
  • Collins Pine FreeForm particleboard from The Collins Companies
  • Alpen Fiberglass Windows from Alpen Energy Group
  • recycled-polyester 180 Walls from Milliken & Company
  • the Bosch Evolution 800 Series Energy-Efficient Dishwasher
  • Greenplay Children's Furniture from Skyline Design
  • Cube3 Ultra low-flush urinal from Caroma
  • LifeGuard Low Smoke Zero Halogen Cables from Houston Wire & Cable Company
  • Wireless building-automation controls from EnOcean
  • the SunEye solar measurement tool from Solmetric Corporation
  • and the LED Downlight from LED Lighting Fixtures, Inc.
