Hemp Building - Appropriate Technology
UK based building products and systems developer, Lime Technology are the market leaders in the development of lime and hemp based, low carbon building products. Touted to sequester 110 kg's of CO2 per cubic meter this is definitaly an appropriate technology for the current ecological and economic climate. The health benefits to people and planet are far too valuable to ignore.
Due to its amazing adaptability hemp can be grown without herbicides or pesticides close to the building markets thus reducing its footprint further.
Now that http://www.facebook.com/WaikatoHempProject are growing Industrial Hemp in the Waikato we may see some of this technology bless our shores in the near future.
