CalPlant 1

ILB Electric, a division of International Line Builders, is performing electrical construction at the world’s first commercial-scale facility producing rice straw-based medium-density fiberboard. CalPlant 1, under construction in Willows, California, will use rice straw, an agricultural waste product, to produce a lighter, stronger alternative to wood-based MDF that will produce less volatile organic compound emissions and contains no added formaldehyde.
