Hempline Insulation By Hemp Building Company
Eric Milburn had the opportunity to work on a home that used an innovative hemp-based insulation product. Hempline Insulation is a bio composite insulation that helps create high-performance, sustainable buildings by replacing all components in conventional walls, floors, and roofs! The insulation is composed of hemp hurd and limestone which helps create high-performance sustainable buildings. According to the company, Hemplime homes are carbon negative because the relatively small amount of carbon dioxide emitted during the creation of the materials is greatly outweighed by the CO2 that is absorbed by the material and locked away within the walls.
