Building With Hemp-Lime Composites
From the National Non-Food Crops Centre, this factsheet looks at the use of hemp-based products and hemp-lime technologies into mainstream building practice. It illustrates the use of a plant-derived material in the construction of buildings.
Hemp construction uses renewable crop-based materials which have absorbed carbon dioxide, providing an opportunity to capture and store it in the fabric of buildings.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
