Organized by Green Roofs for Healthy Cities and the Green Infrastructure Foundation, the Grey to Green Conference 2016 is about sharing the value of green infrastructure (bioswales, green roofs, living walls, etc.) as an important tool in the fight to mitigate against and adapt to climate change. Doubled in size from prior years, Grey to Green Conference 2016 includes a two full-day program with 52 presentations and panel discussions from over 60 industry experts. This conference is the leading forum for designers, policy makers, manufacturers, growers, landscapers, and green building professionals to discuss the benefits of the green infrastructure industry, and how to grow it even further. “Our LivingWalls division is committed to developing sustainable alternatives for green infrastructure projects. We take pride in collaborating closely with our customers to identify the most suitable living wall, retaining living wall or green roof solution for their project”, said Mark Woolbright, LivingWalls Division Manager at Filtrexx.
Filtrexx LivingWalls has an extensive portfolio of living wall solutions. Their living walls offer higher aesthetic appeal for commercial and interior applications, while their retaining living walls provide the underlying structure needed to permanently stabilize extreme grade changes in industrial and building applications. “We build a wide range of Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) and non-MSE solutions for walls and slopes from 45 to 80 degrees of inclination, with varying degrees of design flexibility and planting options. We are truly a one-stop shop for living walls, stabilization and stormwater management solutions because we also incorporate other systems from our Filtrexx Soxx technology portfolio”, said Woolbright. “We are looking forward to connecting with the green infrastructure community at the Grey to Green Conference and believe it is the right place to share our latest living wall solutions”.

Filtrexx is the inventor of the compost filter sock. Since its invention in 2001, Filtrexx® Soxx™ technology has expanded into stormwater management, sediment & erosion control, pollutant removal, living walls, agriculture and gardening applications. Filtrexx Soxx are three dimensional tubular mesh devices filled with different types of Filtrexx Media that are typically used to stop, divert, absorb, clean and filter stormwater runoff in construction and post-construction activities. Used alone or in combination with other low impact development solutions, Filtrexx Soxx offer a reliable, sustainable solution for most challenging project developments. “Despite the numerous applications in diverse industries, our Filtrexx Soxx technology can be easily understood by the addition of these three elements: Mesh, Media and Sorbents or Vegetation. We are the partner of choice for engineering and construction firms looking for sustainable, low impact development solutions”, said Rob Carrothers, chief executive officer at Filtrexx.
Filtrexx® SiltSoxx™, the first compost filter sock Filtrexx invented, has become the superior alternative to silt fence and straw wattles in challenging sediment control applications. Check dam, concrete washout, inlet protection, perimeter control, runoff diversion, sediment traps and slope interruption are some of the best management practices (BMPs) Filtrexx offers to trap and control sediment in construction sites. “In recent years, Filtrexx has grown organically and through acquisitions; this new website will help us re-introduce ourselves with our full set of products and capabilities to all engineering and construction firms across industries”, said Carrothers.
From oil & natural gas, highway and road construction, land and building development — commercial & residential — , government, municipal and utilities projects to landfill construction & maintenance, manufacturing — pollution control—, metals manufacturers, scrap yards and environmental remediation applications, Filtrexx offers an extensive portfolio of Soxx solutions. “We collaborate closely with our customers to identify the most suitable Soxx technology for each specific application and we believe our new website highlights how we provide design and engineering advice to guarantee our customers’ projects success in a wide range of industries”, said Carrothers.
