Hemp Farm Utilizes The Entire Plant for Seed and Fibre

Hemp could potentially replace pretty much anything that is made from timber. Hemp is an incredibly valuable natural resource that is very underutilized. As one of the strongest fibres on the planet, using hemp for construction purposes will result in lighter and stronger wood products. Hemp is also able to hold nails better, and particle boards that are made of hemp are typically twice as strong as wood.

Hemp Key To Zero-carbon Houses

  • Hemp is the most efficient annual plant for carbon sequestering. Regardless of the end use of biomass it´s roots binds few tons of carbon in the soil. It´s an ideal carbon sink.
  • One hectare of industrial hemp can absorb 22 tonnes of CO2 per hectare. It is possible to grow to 2 crops per year so absorption is doubled. Hemp’s rapid growth (grows to 4 metres in 100 days) makes it one of the fastest CO2-to-biomass conversion tools available, more efficient than agro-forestry.
  • Industrial hemp is a very robust, competitive plant that will out-compete weeds.
  • Bio-products made of hemp can produce environmentally friendly products that are easily recycled in compost or in landfills.
  • Most hemp-derived products are non-toxic, biodegradable and renewable.
