Hodapen
Hodapen aims to become a global leader in providing an environmentally friendly alternative to wood, creating value and sustainability and helping to reduce deforestation. Hodapen aims to deliver cost effective Green materials globally.

Solution

A patented process for changing waste rice husk into a substitute that can be essentially used for anything that wood is used for, with our first goal being to apply this revolutionary technology to the construction industry. Hodapen proudly offers very unique competitive advantages over standard wood in that we�ve achieved the foregoing water, fire and pest resistance properties while providing outstanding strength (more durable than wood) and surface finish.

Due to the high demand for green products in construction industry, Hodapen�s focus is on  products such as siding, mobile Homes, flooring, interior moldings, kitchen cabinets, kitchen counter tops, interior trims, roofing, beams, panels, planking, and filler for insulation. The company has developed a patented process for changing husk into a green wood alternative that literally has hundreds of applications in construction and other industries. Hodapen offers unique values to its customers that other same products are not capable of doing. For a lower price, customers are able to have a home which is made out of walls that are water-proof, anti-termite, and fire resistant. This will bring down the risk of flood damage, fire risk, and termites destroying the house which ultimately will also bring down the cost of insurance on the house.

Hodapen not only offers value directly to human beings, it also brings much value directly to the environment, by means of reducing deforestation. By building homes from waste materials (risk husk and waste plastic), as opposed to wood, we will be able to save millions of trees every year while creating jobs. Also, we are reducing the pollution that is caused by burning risk husk. The concept of the green movement incorporates and integrates a variety of strategies during the design, construction and operation of building projects. The use of green building materials and products represents one that we are willing to greatly contribute to.

Rice Hull is generally incinerated or disposed of in landfill sites; our product will reduce that and make use of this through our invention. The company has developed a patented process for changing husk into hundreds of different Materials for use in such industries as Home Construction, Furniture, Automotive and Marine. Hodapen offers unique competitive advantages over standard wood in that we�ve achieved the foregoing water, fire and pest resistance properties while providing outstanding strength (more durable than wood) and surface finish.

 Our invention not only proves to be more durable, fire resistant, water resistant, and termite proof, but it takes waste materials normally discarded in environmentally counter-productive ways and creates a green product that can be utilized in green buildings. Due to the high demand for green products in construction industry, Hodapen�s focus is on the products such as, Manufacturing siding, Mobile Homes, Flooring, Interior Moldings, Kitchen Cabinets, Kitchen Counter tops, Interior trims, Roofing, Beams, Panels, Planking, Filler for insulating and filling in between stud.

The company has developed a patented process for changing husk into hundreds of different Materials for use in such industries as Home Construction, Furniture, Automotive and Marine. The potential market size is expected to be great. As an example, the industry revenue for prefabricated wood products in 2009 was approximately $6.6 billion dollars.
