The UK-based BRE Center for Innovative Construction Materials at the University of Bath is looking towards hemp as a viable eco-friendly construction material. When combined with a lime-based adhesive, hemp becomes a very efficient and lightweight composite building material.
As one of the world's leading research and trust companies, BRE specializes in building sustainable and innovative communities, and believes that carbon neutral homes of the future could be made utilizing hemp.
Unlike other plants in the hemp family, this unique material has neutral emissions.
