NORWALK, CT, Jan. 12, 2024 – BuildingGreen celebrated the positive transformations happening in

the building industry with its annual Top 10 Green Building Products. The Mycelium Collection of

SRPÔ TPU Rigid Core flooring, by HMTX Industries, was acknowledged as one of the gamechanging

products for 2024. According to BuildingGreen, the collection was chosen because it can

be recycled back into new flooring with no loss of performance, providing an attractive and more

environmentally responsible alternative to vinyl. The Mycelium Collection was the only flooring

product honored.

A key differentiator in selecting the Mycelium Collection was its use of thermoplastic polyurethane

(TPU), a different kind of chemistry not found in other resilient flooring. Known for its strength and

versatility, TPU differs from standard polyurethane materials used in a myriad of other building

products. Standard polyurethane is a thermoset plastic that cannot be melted down and thus is not

readily recyclable, whereas TPU can be melted and processed into new material.

Said Brent Ehrlich, BuildingGreen’s Products & Materials Specialist, “In an ideal world, we’d like

more natural solutions, but for some design choices, there just aren’t good options. The thing that’s

interesting about this product is that it can be recycled into new flooring, with no loss of

performance. That’s something that is rare, so it becomes a more environmentally and socially

responsible vinyl alternative.”
