It starts from the hemp , also called hemp wood, which has a liquid absorption power equal to 5 times its weight. Mixed with water and lime, it undergoes a mineralization process thanks to which the biocomposite becomes performing and lasting.
This is the woody inner part of the plant stem that remains when the bark fiber is removed.
The blend of hemp, lime and other natural materials have performance believed to be better than any other material available on the market today.
The biomass produced in 3-4 months is the equivalent of what a tree is able to develop on average in 4 years, with equal proportions for the quantity of CO2 sequestered from the atmosphere.
Using hemp and lime in construction therefore means not returning the carbon to the atmosphere and having the first building material with a negative carbon footprint.
The hemp chipboard (hemp) is rich in microscopic alveoli filled with air in which continuous processes of micro-condensation and micro-evaporation are able to block the passage of heat and cold from the outside to the inside of the building (and vice versa) and to regulate humidity, offering exceptional living comfort.
