Prefab lime hemp building from Dun Agro Hemp Group is a relatively new ecological building method. Building with lime hemp construction is not new, but producing large-scale prefab lime hemp panels from the Dun Agro Hemp Group makes it possible that everyone can now live in a lime hemp home.
Lovers of healthy and environmentally conscious construction can go to Dun Agro Hemp Group for lime hemp homes.
For those who want to create warm, healthy, chemical-free environments, lime hemp has a number of advantages, namely:
It is “breathable” (vapor-permeable) and hygroscopic: lime hemp walls will regulate humidity levels in the house, absorb moisture from the air in times of high relative humidity and release when humidity drops. Because the internal humidity falls within the range of 40-60%, fungi and bacteria have no chance. All this is achieved with a minimal ventilation system.
FREE FROM CHEMICALS
Because of the natural hydrate lime that covers every hemp particle in the hemp mixture, lime hemp achieves excellent fire, rot and pest resistance assessments, without the need for additional treatment with potentially harmful chemicals. Because the structural frame is placed within the lime hemp wall, it is possible to use untreated softwood, which further reduces the need for chemicals in the home.
REMAINING WARM (AND COOL) WITHOUT CHARGING THE EARTH
The exceptional thermal performance of lime hemp – caused by the combination of insulating capacity of the hemp wood and thermal mass (heat-absorbing capacity of the wall) within the same material – means that the interior of lime hemp buildings remains at a virtually constant temperature with little demand for heating – or cooling systems.

With a mixture of mainly lime and hemp wood, external walls, floors and roofs can be built or walls of existing buildings can be insulated. Building with lime hemp is a very environmentally conscious building method. Lime hemp contributes to a comfortable and healthy indoor climate due to the strong moisture-regulating effect. It is very suitable for building open vapor, it is easy to process, it has the potential to go 3D-printing buildings, it does not rot, it does not burn, is energy-saving and has even more advantages.
The trunk of the hemp plant produces two ingredients for building materials: fibers from the bark and wood from the core. The hemp wood, mixed with water and hydrate lime, forms a vapor open building material, lime hemp. This is used to build monolithic walls, floors and roofs. The fibers of the hemp plant are used in construction as insulation wool, mainly in timber frame walls and roofs. Hemp stores 13,500 kg CO2 per hectare. The amount of stored CO2 is therefore enormous. Together with the short-cycle CO2 cycle, this ensures that lime hemp is seen as a CO2-neutral / negative building material. This means that more CO2 is compensated than that is released during the construction process. H2 >Building systems
Lime hemp can be manually poured into formwork in a (wooden) construction. This provides a uniform envelope (envelope) with a high insulation value around the supporting structure, which contributes to low energy consumption. The moisture-regulating effect and CO2-absorbing qualities are good starting points for a healthy indoor climate.
Lime hemp poured into the work is also suitable for the inside insulation / renovation of monuments, the outside of which must remain unaffected. Due to the strong moisture-regulating effect, moisture problems at stone walls and cold bridges are neutralized.
Limestone hemp panels from the Dun Agro Hemp Group are suitable for façade sealing and partition walls. They are produced and dried in our own factory, so that finishing can be started immediately after being placed on the construction site.
The advantages of the Dun Agro Hemp Group lime hemp panels are that the panels are made under controlled conditions and the construction time is shorter. Currently, a type of lime is used for prefab panels, which ensures that the lime hemp is very hard. This is partly to minimize the chance of damage during transport.
- Lime hemp is a natural and recyclable building and insulation material.
- Lime hemp is light, sturdy, vapor open (breathable) and an efficient moisture regulator.
- Lime hemp is suitable for floors, walls, roofs, attics and as plaster material.
- Lime hemp is used in new construction and renovation.
- Lime hemp has low “embodied energy”: little energy is needed to make and use it.
- Lime hemp has a good CO2 balance: the uptake during hemp growth is greater than the emissions during cultivation and the construction process. The lime ensures continuous CO2 absorption in the building.
- Lime hemp is a continuous and stable moisture buffer, a good thermal insulator and the latent heat capacity saves energy. These are the starting points for a comfortable and healthy indoor climate.
- Lime hemp has good sound-insulating properties.
- Lime hemp application does not cause condensation problems with interior renovations.
- Lime hemp does not burn and rot and is fungicidal.
Industrial fiber hemp
- Is grown and processed professionally by Dun Agro Hemp Group.
- Grows very quickly and fits within a healthy and balanced agriculture.
- Captures a lot of CO2.
- Has many applications for the fibers, wood, seeds and leaves.
- Hydrate lime is a food pure lime type and contains no contaminants and cements.
- Has a high binding force in combination with a high flexibility.
- Is highly hygroscopic.
- Is very alkaline and therefore free of bacteria and a natural barrier for insects.
- Is a mixture of high-quality natural minerals.
- The aim is to make the hydrate lime hydraulic so that it dries and hardens faster.
- Preserves the very fine micro pore structure of the lime, with optimum hygroscopicity.
