Ekolution® Hemp fibre insulation
This EPD covers the production of insulation from bast fibres derived from the industrial hemp plant. The bast hemp fibres are a soft, woody fibre obtained from the hemp stems and have a very high tensile strength. The hemp fibres are often used as a reinforcement in bio-composites and has very good thermal and acoustic insulating capacity.
Ekolution® Hemp fibre Insulation is thus a bio-composite material that is very suitable for the construction sector. Ekolution® Hemp fibre insulation has several technical and environmental advantages:
- The industrial hemp binds large amounts of CO2 in a plant during its growth, faster than most other sources of biomass raw materials.
- Low-embodied energy
