HyBlock is a carbon-negative building material manufactured using industrial hemp core-fiber and a specialty eco-cement as a binder. The industrial-hemp plant is grown without pesticides and has been used similar applications for thousands of years; our eco-binder is based on those used to build anscient projects like the great wall of China. HyBlock as a whole is completely non-toxic and bio-compatible.
HyBlock is a Load-bearing, Breathable, Bio-based Building System That Offers Maximum Comfort and Breathability for the Healthiest Home Environment. Plant Fibers Mixed With Cements Have Been Used As Building Materials in Europe for Over a Thousands Years.
