France’s 1st carbon-negative building thanks to hempcrete, new hemp-based 3D ink, seaweed yarn, biobased epichlorohydrin and more: The Digest’s Top 8 Innovations for the week of December 29th

December 28, 2021 |


France is claiming the world’s first carbon-negative building, thanks in large part to the carbon-sequestering power of hemp. The 4,000 square foot sports hall was constructed using Hempcrete, a construction alternative that incorporates fast-growing, water-efficient hemp. And not wanting to be left out in New York, a consortium is developing hemp-based ink for use in 3D-printed construction applications.

In today’s Digest, from hemp to seaweed yarn, Cargill’s acquisition of Croda’s bioindustrial business for $1 billion, biobased epichlorohydrin expansion, a wood-based plastic filament biodegradable lamp, and more…these top 8 innovations are ready for you now at The Digest online.
