Project Drywall: Gypsum and Plaster for Sustainable Walls and Ceilings

We are currently working on our plaster bid and have decided to go with gypsum board because it meets all of our requirements for a sustainable product. Gypsum forms naturally like salt or limestone and is an abundant mineral. Its paper backing is made from old newspapers, phone books, and cardboard, and it is a zero VOC (volatile organic compounds) product.

 Under Materials & Resources, gypsum board achieves us ½ of a point in the Environmentally Preferable product category for material and possible another ½ point for local production.

This article provides some great additional information about Gypsum and Plaster solutions.
