Event Description

Hempitecture CEO, Matthew Mead, provides an overview of the natural fiber insulation market that is rapidly developing to support low embodied carbon construction. Reviewing different products and strategies, this session will discuss how to achieve the lowest total carbon footprint for a project after accounting for both embodied carbon and operational carbon in the building.

Learning Objectives:     

  1. Discover low embodied carbon insulations.
  2. Learn about natural fiber insulation product forms (batt, loose-fill, board).
  3. Understand how to measure in-wall performance (R-value + thermal mass + air penetration + vapor permeability).
  4. Demonstrate installing to maximize reported performance.
