For construction we use the inner part of the hemp stem. Before we can use this, we must first separate the inner part (hemp wood) and the outer part (hemp fibre). This is done in our own, specially developed factory.
Hemp wood: This is packed in 3 kg or 15 kg packages for animal litter or in bulk for our construction department. “Hempbed” is our own litter brand, but we also do private label production.
Before construction, we sieve the hemp wood, so that only the coarse wood parts remain. This gives the best quality result, because ultimately less lime is needed to make the hemp-lime mixture.
Hemp fibre: The hemp fiber is packed in bales of ± 220 kg and sold to the textile, automotive, insulation and paper industries.
Examples of products in which our hemp fiber is processed are:
- automotive interior parts, such as dashboards and door panels,
- insulation mats as an alternative to glass and rock wool,
