Webinar // Hempcrete and wood in bio-based buildings
A meeting between France, the world leader in hempcrete, and Sweden, one of the leading countries in wood construction and cross-laminated wood.
France is the world leader in hempcrete. It began in 1987 with the renovation of a timber-framed house and is today an industry ready to deliver for the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
Sweden is one of the leading countries in wood construction and cross-laminated wood; also known for its engineering and design, it is a naturaI partner to the hempcrete industry.
This is planned to be the first of several meetings in between the French hempcrete industry and Swedish building industry.
Leading to new partnerships and an increase in knowledge of bio-based construction in both countries.
The goal with the webinar is to increase knowledge of hempcrete and to learn about France as a leader in bio-based buildings.
The long term goal is to start a cross border cooperation to increase bio-based buildings, with the ultimate goal of lowering CO2 from the construction industry.
