Hemp Technologies is a world leading supplier of hempcrete building materials, and provides design, technical, and building services to the global community. Hempcrete, a long since known non-structural construction infill made from industrial hemp and a lime-based binder, provides the healthiest possible construction for a safe, high quality indoor air environment. It is mold-resistant, rot-resistant, fire-resistant and pest-resistant. Hempcrete is a carbon negative, carbon sequestering building material that is durable and recyclable, lasting hundreds of years. Hempcrete regulates temperature and has a high vapor permeability, so it can absorb and release water, allowing it to respond to changing humidity levels and creating a low embodied energy “breathable wall.” In many climates, a 12” hempcrete wall will facilitate app. 60⁰F indoor temperatures year-round.
