LIGHTER, MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT, LESS CARBON INTENSIVE
The core or hurd of the hemp plant is both hydrophilic and oleophilic, meaning it absorbs both water and oil. This characteristic makes it a valued material for a wide range of industrial applications.
INCA Renewtech will process hurd to specific geometries and sell this to hempcrete manufacturers who combine it with mineral binders to create lighter, more insulative and far less carbon intensive ICF blocks and building panels.
