Green drywall alternatives: Part 2: Dragon Board

Still considering green alternatives to drywall...

So I decided to harass the fantastic eco furniture designer and green materials distributor, Anthony Brozna, to see what he thought. Now many of you may have seen Anthony's beautiful furniture in Dwell, HGTV, Town & Country, and more. But Anthony also has a green materials business, EcoSupply Center, which promotes green, energy efficient, sustainable building materials.

He immediately launched into DragonBoard. According to him, DragonBoard
"May even eventually replace drywall. I think it could even be the answer to Portland Cement / lime based cements. It's made out of magnesium oxide & chloride, and is cold pressed. It has a 4 hour fire rating, submersible in water, you can paint on it, clay it-- one side is smooth, the other rough, so it works well for either application. It's also anti-macrobial.

And they make tons of products- subfloor, exterior OR interior..."

The DragonBoard web site had even more great information:
