Supply chain 1 - Production of panels and construction material with hemp

Why the Hemp?

In Italy hemp production is constantly increasing: almost all crops (92.7%) started in the last five years and more than half in the last two (29.3% in 2014 and 24.4% in 2015).

This is linked to the known benefit linked to this highly sustainable and performing component.
