Design for a more sustainable world
with HempWool® 

As architects, designers, energy modelers, and green building experts, we have a responsibility to do better.

Buildings and their operations are responsible for approximately 40% of our energy consumption and 40% of our carbon footprint. We can't keep designing with the same materials and expecting that we'll have different results

We must design more responsibly, with more sustainable materials. 

HempWool® is the only thermal insulation product that has a biogenic carbon uptake, while also maintaining the efficiency of the thermal envelope.

 

Sustainability

Learn why HempWool is the sustainable insulation.

At Hempitecture,
our insulation
begins with a
seed.

HempWool is created using the fiber from industrial hemp, grown sustainably in rural communities across the United States. These seeds grow into a crop that offsets 9.8 tons of CO2 per acre.

That's the equivalent of taking 2.1 cars off the road for a year.

The harvested fiber is processed and transported to our US manufacturing facility.

Our manufacturing facility, coming online in Q2 of 2022, will utilize renewable energy and a state of the art manufacturing process that is capable of producing millions of square feet of HempWool per year.

The resulting insulation
product is carbon negative.

A life cycle analysis conducted at our current manufacturing partners facility shows signs that HempWool is a promising solution for embodied carbon in the built environment. 

HempWool shows a biogenic carbon uptake greater than its biogenic carbon output. 

Meaning, HempWool is a carbon negative insulation that can drive more sustainable outcomes for your project.

BETTER PERFORMANCE

The pressure fit system that keeps HempWool in place with no slumping or sagging means better overall performance. Reduce costly call-backs with a product that ensures a tight thermal envelope. The high thermal inertia of HempWool makes it a phase-shift resistant material, keeping the home comfortable all year round.
