Philadelphia, Nov. 21 -- BuildingGreen, publisher of GreenSpec and  Environmental Building News, announced the winners of its annual award for the most innovative green building products. The 10 winners include dimension stone that’s made from quarry waste, an engineered wood product that is partly sourced from trees killed by the mountain pine beetle, and a commercial composting system.

“The products we’re recognizing this year are remarkable in their diversity and innovation,” said Alex Wilson, founder of BuildingGreen, noting they are helping create more sustainable buildings throughout North America.

Now its 12 th year, the BuildingGreen Top-10 list was announced at the Greenbuild Conference and Expo. The residential and commercial products and materials were selected by the BuildingGreen editors from the hundreds of new and innovative products they reviewed during the past 12 months.

Wilson said that a big driver of innovative green products continues to be the LEED rating system, and this year’s launch of the newest version, LEED v4, marks an even stronger focus on safe materials and product transparency.

The BuildingGreen Top-10 Products for 2014 are:
