Harvesting Hemp

Posted 13/09/10

Why? Because we’re using hemcrete – a mixture of hemp and lime –
to build our first project, the Triangle, a development of 42 homes in Swindon. It’s a healthy, affordable way of getting houses that are well insulated and simple to build. And – get this – it makes it possible to LOCK
UP carbon dioxide within the fabric of the building, a neat little trick
that means our houses will save 30 to 50 tonnes of carbon dioxide
compared with a conventional house. Bingo!
