Hempcrete breakthrough: Approved for U.S. Residential construction, paving the way for greener homes

Great news for sustainable construction enthusiasts! Hempcrete, a carbon-sequestering insulation material crafted from hemp stalk hurds and lime, has secured approval in the U.S. residential building code.

The International Code Council (ICC) gave the green light during a recent hearing, designating Hempcrete as an official component in the 2024 International Residential Code (IRC) for 49 states.

This move paves the way for eco-friendly building projects, as Hempcrete, renowned for its fire resistance and moisture regulation, emerges as a viable alternative to traditional concrete. Kudos to the U.S. Hemp Building Association for championing this significant breakthrough!
