Organic Waste Innovations
'Stak Block' is as Strong as Brick and Made From Rice Straw

In the ‘Story of the Three Little Pigs,’ the first house that the wolf blew down by huffing and puffing was one made of straw, but if Oryzatech has its way, not only will straw houses withstand wolves, they’ll withstand earthquakes, cold, and fire with the Stak Block.

Oryzatech has patents granted and pending on a manufacturing process that renders rice straw waste into sturdy, stackable construction blocks. Each ‘Stak Block’ can be locally-produced of 96% recycled carbon-sequestering content, making them LEED credit worthy when used in construction.

The company has entered prototype production and is seeking investors in order to make Stak Blocks available for general construction applications.
