Amazing Lego-Style HEMP BLOCKS Make Building a House Quick, Easy & Sustainable

These hempcrete blocks are a green building material made with a hemp-lime insulation mixture packed around a biocomposite structural frame. They can be stacked like bricks to build walls up to 30 feet high and they become the insulation and the structure of the building. All you need to do after the walls are up is plaster the inside and outside, and then add windows, doors and a roof!

The hemp plant sequesters carbon during it’s growth, and lime, as it dries, reabsorbs the carbon that was released when it was manufactured, which means the hemp-lime mixture is carbon negative (it sequesters more carbon than it creates in it’s life cycle). Terry Radford from Just BioFiber says that these hempcrete blocks will sequester about 10 tons of carbon per house.

Just BioFiber is located in Alberta, Canada and you can find out more about their hempcrete blocks here:

Not only is this an environmentally friendly building material, it also creates a comfortable living space. The hempcrete helps to regulate temperature and humidity, it reduces noise transmission through the walls, it’s fire resistant, and it’s non-toxic.

This is an incredible green building technology and we can’t wait to see Just BioFiber ramp up their block production so that we can start to see hempcrete buildings popping up all over the world.
