Is hempcrete the future of construction?
Hemp insulation is a special niche in the construction market that is yet to be fully maximized. A meager 0.5% of the whopping 3.3 million tons of insulation done each year pertains to hemp.
For the future of hempcrete to grow in the industry, players in the construction industry must be educated on the material. As a newcomer, it is important that proper handling methods, and usage is taught to those that will be working with the material. It is also important to ensure that the public is made aware of the benefits of using hempcrete for construction. This will enable more homeowners and those who are looking to make renovations to go for hempcrete.
