Sustainable Building System Featuring Carbon Capture

Sustainability

Sustainability and Environmental Justice

Ecological economist Herman Daly asked the question, “what use is a sawmill without a forest?”

We have designed a building system that removes carbon dioxide from the air while the biological plant fiber grows and we use the natural insulating hurd material from the industrial hemp plant to build a healthy, warm, low energy shelter for your home that will last for several generations. The hemp lime blocks use a binder that reclaims CO2 released in its production. These combined materials have a negative CO2 emission rating. We firmly believe in environmental justice by using sustainable materials to replace currently unsustainable building materials and practices.

Sustainable development consists of balancing local and global efforts to meet basic human needs without destroying the natural environment. Environmental justice is as important as is sustainable development. From this perspective, the economy is a subsystem of human society, which is itself a subsystem of the biosphere, and a gain in one sector is a loss from another.

The Earth Charter speaks of “a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace.”

Sustainability implies responsible and proactive decision-making and innovation that minimizes negative impact and maintains balance between ecological resilience, economic prosperity, political justice and cultural vibrancy to ensure a desirable planet for all species now and in the future.

We at Just BioFiber believe that everyone must do something to contribute to the sustainability of our environment. Lets all do at least one positive act and measure our contribution one person at a time. We do ours one block at a time and so can you by choosing to build with sustainable materials.

Hi, I went to a hemp growing presentation by Jan Slaski yesterday in marwayne AB and I remember him saying something about this product that it does not mold. Can you explain to me how exactly this product can’t do that? Our local equine riding arenas are in rough shape and mold is a factor because of the humidity in these buildings. I would really appreciate to know more and I can spread the word to others thanks !!!

    The components for the BioFiber blocks are natural hemp hurd and (Calcium Oxide) Lime there is no Portland cement. This hemp lime formulation moves moisture away from the material. Mold cannot grow without moisture. The material is permeable to allow a small amount of air to pass through. No vapor barrier is required. That is why it is important to use a semi porous finish like lime stucco and lime plaster to allow the wall to breathe. No trapped moisture, no mold.
