    Thought this may be on interest. Following trials of various natural insulation materials over the past decade, (including wool, flax fibre, cellulose fibre, hemp), a housing association in France has started a pilot project to renovate 50 listed houses, 30 using hempcrete, 20 using hemp blocks (with airtightnesss, MVHR, etc). The longer-term plan is to expand the scheme to 1,000 homes.

    Brief introduction in English: https://www.isohemp.com/en/hemp-solution-heritage-renovation
    And a few videos on the first experimental renovation (house to offices), in French:

    Interesting projects. Thanks for the links. The French use hemp a lot more than most other nations. I'd be happy to see it used more here too. There's a hempcrete house a little way from us that's very nice.
