The Future of Industrial Hemp
- Warren Clark
According to sources, the recent pandemic’s impact on the construction industry has varied month-to-month. According to TRD Miami, South Florida experienced a raise in construction starts in the month of August, most of which was residential construction. Industrial hemp has uses in both commercial and residential building including fiber board, insulation, fiberglass substrate, cement, carpet, stucco and mortar. The implications for hemp in commercial construction and industrial use seem limitless.
OBJECTIVE: To learn from the leading builders, hemp producers and processors to discuss the pros and cons related to hemp building materials alongside current drivers for the industry at-large.
