TREE-FREE. FOREST FRIENDLY.
SAVE AN ACRE WITH ACRE™
A Revolutionary Tree-Free Building Material
At Modern Mill, we’re leading the way toward a more sustainable future for the building materials industry. And ACRE is part of the solution. ACRE looks and feels just like wood. But it’s produced without touching a single precious tree.
Over the past 25 years, the world has lost more than 300 million acres of forest—an area nearly the size of South Africa. But today, there is hope.
A FOREST-FRIENDLY WOOD ALTERNATIVE
To keep trees safely in the ground, ACRE upcycles a plant material that’s already harvested and ready to use: rice hulls. Every year, rice processors leave 100 million metric tons of hulls behind.
Rice hulls are a natural wonder of waterproof strength and durability, serving as hard, protective coverings for the tender grains inside.
Thanks to their silica content, rice hulls are incredibly resistant to water, weather, rot, and pests. They give ACRE its amazing look, feel and strength.
