Cross Laminated Timbers—CLTs—are eco-friendly structural components similar in construction to plywood. CLT building technology uses low-grade timber and wood scraps tightly laminated together at 90-degree angles and fused with non-toxic glues to make structural components for building. Europeans have built nearly 3,000 structures using the technology which makes concrete and steel unnecessary even in large structures.
Ashville-based Sustainable Cross Laminated Technologies Group plans to manufacture and import CLTs at a new plant in Montana and another in the Southeast.
