France is the first producer of hemp in Europe. Each year, approximately 8000 to 12 000 hectares of fields are selected for this cultivation.
TECHNICHANVRE uses a 100% french hemp
From the beginning, all of our hemp products come from French cultivation and are transformed in our two manufacturing sites:
- The first one is located at Riec sur Belon (29 – Finistère) for wet laid fiber material : C015 and C005 (specific hemp aggregates)
- The second one at Chemillé (49 – Maine et Loire) for dry laid fiber material : rolls and panels
THE HEMP IN EUROPE : ON THE MOVE! !
Convinced by the multiple advantages of hemp in construction materials, the Chanvrière Du Belon’s founders promoted the benefits of hemp by sharing their knowledge and skills. Today, more than ever, Technihempis one of the main representations of hemp building abroad and in France, fully involved in training, and in conferences (Eg. : Hemp Building Symposium in Ireland, September 2009…).
Even though hemp is grown in multiple countries around the world, applications in the building sector and industrial hemps characteristics aren’t well-known. Nevertheless, collective and individual awareness for environmental issues, for healthy housing associated with new legislative and regulatory provisions bring a new way of thinking in building design. By sharing our knowledge and work experience, we hope to convince you to use hemp for your home.
