Alternative Technology Association Meeting

By Ben Convery | Sun 23rd Nov 2014 07:47am

It was a privilege to be invited to be the Speaker at the Alternative Technology Association’s meeting in Sydney on 11 November. Although it was a weeknight event and a bit rainy I was pleasantly surprised to see about 40 people arrive, mostly after a long day of work keen to find out about building with hemp, the performance of hemp housing, the Australian industrial hemp fibre industry and how effective the combination of farming this fast growing woody biomass and locking it into construction could be in managing our carbon footprint.  Other than earth building and strawbale, there are few construction products that could claim such a net positive impact.

 

Could have my powerpoint embedded here?
