Success in this endeavor ultimately will enable us to understand ourselves better, to produce smarter machines, and perhaps even to make ourselves smarter.

Hemp hurds


Hempcrete or hemplime is biocomposite material, a mixture of hemp hurds shives and lime[1] sandor pozzolanswhich is used as a material for construction and insulation. It lacks the brittleness of concrete and consequently does not need expansion joints. Hempcrete has been used in France since the early s to construct non-weight bearing insulating infill walls, as hempcrete does not have the requisite strength for constructing foundation and is instead supported by the frame. It is a low density material and resistant to cracking under movement, thus making it suitable for use in earthquake-prone areas.
