Tony visits Malawi’s Hemp Trial

Tony recently visited Invegrow’s hemp trial in Malawi. He has been consulting on the project and was pleased to see the progress they are making. Some of the highlights included getting to test out a small decorticator (machine used to seperate the hemp fibres from the stalk) and demonstrating how to make hempcrete.

Hemporium has pioneered hemp building in South Africa, starting with “The House that Hemp Built” in Noordhoek Cape Town in 2011.

This house is a showcase for hemp products and includes hempcrete walls, hemp chipboard, hemp insulation, hemp carpets, curtains, couches and more.

We have since been involved in 4 more buildings, including a Soup Kitchen in Khayelitsha.

Hempcrete is the “better than zero carbon” building system. For more information please visit the “USES” section or click HERE for an article on the original house.
