Hempcrete: A revolution ?

I have recently seen a magazine article & a few internet posts on : Hempcrete.. an ancient, but revitalised building material. It is apparently made by adding part of the stem of the plant (short fibre) to a lime binding agent. The product then petrifies (turns to mineral/stone) & becomes a lightweight, concrete-like building material. This can be shaped into blocks or rammed into walls (similar to mud-bricks).

Thanks to a small number of people who fought against discrimination & outright B-S propaganda.. Hemp for industrial purposes, can now be licensed & grown in Aotearoa/NZ… amongst other countries. I understand that the first NZ Hempcrete house(in over a century ?) is due for completion in the near future… “BRILLIANT !!”

There was mention, that Hemp can also be used to produce: BioFuels which could take more pressure off the environment & offer an alternative to currently polluting/ climate changing FOSSIL-fuels. Hemp can also NOW be used to make a raft of other eco-friendly products.. IF the Govt. removed the extremely strict regulation (still comparing industrial hemp to the currently illicit drug: ‘marijuana’ aka cannabis) on licensing, this could go ahead in ‘leaps & bounds’ as opposed to a slow shuffle !

Kia-Kaha !!
