We present a research work concerning bio and eco-compatible materials and focused on the use of hemp in building.

Abstract

We present a research work concerning bio and eco-compatible materials and focused on the use of hemp in building. The work is developed both in the research and training activities, in relationship with the local market. Hemp is a biomaterial with high characteristics of eco-compatibility, but in the considered contest (the Abruzzo region) these potentialities for a highly sustainable life cycle cannot be exploited because there aren’t local productions. Therefore the principal purpose of our work is to promote the diffusion of a healthy architecture (through an appropriate redevelopment of the existing buildings) and a real local production able to give economic repercussion, in an agricultural-industrial-building symbiosis. This will be done by specifying the well-being performance of hemp products and individuating and overcoming the criticalities of the current practices. So we want to develop a model aiming to the human health safeguard and the economic and social sustainability (circular economy).
