We revive hemp culture and continue the hemp-linen tradition in modern way
In Slovakia based cluster is focused on research and development of new or innovated hemp products. It has, together with Hemp cooperative, taken the role of partner institution for hemp industry advancement and technologically aligned companies. Goal is to ensure long-term sustainable advancement of hemp manufacturing with high added and ecological value. Applying cooperative and circular economy aims to create interaction of specializations in development and manufacturing of organic commodities from regional crude.
Current development focuses on compressed boards or panels from hemp shive (high density) and recycled materials. First result is board HEMREC 550, but more testing is taking place using different ratios of volumes, densities and binders to use in building or furniture industry.
Articles with expected properties and lower weight will reduce ecological burden, lower processing, manufacturing and transport emissions, and reduce deforestation.
HemRec boards, where the sheath is joined by recycled material are followed by prototype boards with binders that are completely compostable, so the boards are, at the end the life cycle, able to return in the biological circulation.
We consider that the real recycling!
Together with our partner SK-Tex, we participated in an international construction fare on March 27-30, 2019, which was marked by healthy housing, energy savings and design solutions, with cross - section of materials and components for construction and reconstruction.
We have introduced a thermal and sound insulation partition system made of HemRec boards and panels Ekosene of recycled textile or hemp fiber, which, in addition, are unrivaled in work with interior humidity.
Konopné družstvo and Laudatosi s.r.o. - members of Hemp Cluster have attended innovation festival https://inovato.sk/inofest/on 16th of September 2020 where 39 Slovak companies and creative teams presented it's newest innovations. Uniqueness of hemp construction materials has atracted attention of not only builders, but also deputies of ministries.
