LFB is a Norwegian company that specializes in Hempcrete. Hempcrete is growing in popularity worldwide for its ability to build beautiful, healthier, and more sustainable buildings. The components? Simply Hemp, air lime, and water! Other benefits of Hempcrete are; Excellent carbon footprint(one 100 m^2 dwelling built with Tradical® Hempcrete stores about 20 tonnes of Co2, which makes it stronger over time), is self-insulating with amazing indoor air quality because of its moisture-controlling properties. Besides all of that, Hempcrete provides excellent soundproofing, is fireproof, pest resistant, and an ultralight composite material that can be recycled after its lifecycle… which is about 100 years+++
LFB is the first company in Norway to promote, sell and provide licensing for Hempcrete. They are in close contact with the rest of the hempcrete providers in Scandinavia. Their Hempcrete of choice? I think you guessed it, Tradical® Hempcretes from France. As Ulrik, the co-founder, says, “It’s simply the best alternative out there!”.
Fun fact in Norway, Hemp is illegal to grow, and that if you want to build with Hempcrete in Norway, you have to import it from countries like Sweden, Denmark & France? This is one of the many challenges LFB is faced with today.
We at EcoCrafting have decided to do what we can to promote Hempcrete and LFB. We provide funding(when and where we can), we spread their story, their challenges, and their ambitions. We believe in them. Imagine a world where all our buildings are built with Hempcrete, storing millions of tons of Co2, all the while making our daily life healthier, cleaner, and better.
