Hempire Building Materials Ltd have been developing solutions to address the problem of CO2 emissions created by the manufacture of building materials. We manufacture building materials made from sustainable materials sourced entirely from within Ireland
All our products are suitable for use in the construction of zero carbon buildings. We use industrial hemp as our main raw material. Cultivating hemp runs parallel with ‘green future objectives’. Hemp requires little to no biocides, improves soil structure and fertility, and also controls erosion. These positive attributes make hemp the ideal break crop for farmers.
Cultivating a hectare of hemp sequesters approx 10 tons of CO2 per annum. Hemp is probably the most versatile crop known to man considering its wide variety of applications.Hemp has been grown throughout the world for millennia and is still common throughout Eastern Europe and China. With growing awareness of climate change, cultivating hemp is making a comeback in the Ireland and Europe
