The Many Uses of Hemp Hurds

Hemp stalks contain two kinds of fibers: bast and hurd. The outer layer of the stalks is bast fiber while the woody inner core is known as hurds. Similar to flax shives, hemp hurds are softer and coarser. Rich in cellulose, hemp hurds have exceptional thermal retention qualities.

Hemp hurds are also noise- and fire-resistant. That makes hemp hurds an excellent insulation material. Hemp insulation retains heat and releases it only when the atmosphere is cooler. This natural airconditioning contributes to a greener planet by saving the use of non-renewable energy sources.

Growing global concerns about a more sustainable way of living have put hemp hurds at the center of the construction industry. Hemp hurds in conjunction with lime as a binder makes hempcrete. When mixed with water, it becomes hemp-clay. People are increasingly using both as building materials.

Hemp-clay wins over hempcrete in terms of sustainability, as the supply of clay is considerably more abundant than lime. Also, hempcrete needs water to set, but hemp-clay sets on its own. Hemp composites as insulation or building material are entirely carbon neutral. That is the biggest advantage.

Hemp hurd composites have also made inroads in the automotive industry. Increasingly more carmakers are using hemp hurd composites for door panels and insulation. Fully biodegradable plastic made from hemp hurds has the potential to free the world from the hazards of plastic pollution.
Hemp hurds are usable for making paper. They also make good animal bedding. Eco-conscious pet-owners show a distinct preference for these beddings.

Frequently Asked Questions

Hemp hurd comes from the stem of hemp plants. Hemp meant for fiber use get planted closely together so that they grow tall with almost no branches. Harvested just as the seeds start coming, hemp stalks are left in the field for retting. Retting is the natural process of decay that breaks down the harder core inside and softens the outer layer. The outer layer produces bast fibers used primarily in the textile industry, but also for making fine quality specialty paper. The harder inner core is known as hemp hurds. A decorticator machine separates the bast fibers from the hemp hurds after the stalks have been retted.
Hemp hurds have many uses. Mixed with binders like lime or clay, hemp hurds make hempcrete or hemp-clay which are gaining currency as building materials. Hemp hurds also make for great insulation material. Hemp hurds retain heat when the atmosphere is hot and releases it only when it’s cooler. As an insulation material, they act as natural air-conditioners. Hemp is naturally resistant to pests and molds. Hemp hurds also have the capacity to shut out the noise and resist fire. Hemp hurds can be used for producing 100% biodegradable plastic as well. Major automotive companies are already using hemp bioplastic for door panels etc. It is possible to different varieties of bioplastic from hemp to replace the various kinds of hazardous fossil fuel-based plastic that we now use. Hemp hurds is used for making paper and make comfortable animal bedding also.
One part of chopped hemp hurds by weight to one and a half parts of a binder like lime by weight is the usual ratio for making hempcrete. That translates to roughly four buckets of hemp hurds and one bucket of lime. It is also possible to use lime and metakaolin (China clay) together in a 50/50 blend. In that case, it would be half a bucket of lime and half a bucket of metakaolin. The ratio would remain the same. The lime, of course, has to be mixed with water. Usually, half a bucket of lime would need half a bucket of water. How much quantity of hempcrete you need would depend on the size of the building you want to construct, or the area to be insulated.
Yes, that is totally possible. Mix lime with water in equal proportions. Mix one and a half parts of chopped hemp hurds by weight with one part of lime with water by weight. Tamp the mixture down and allow it to set. That’s all there is to making hempcrete. You can also use a mortar mixing machine if you want to, for mixing the hemp hurds with the lime binder. It is also possible to mix lime and metakaolin (China clay) in equal proportions as the binder with hemp hurds.
Both hemp-clay and hempcrete are used for constructing and/or insulating buildings. However, they are not the same. Hempcrete is a composite made by mixing chopped hemp hurds with a binder like lime mixed with water. Sometimes, lime is used with an equal proportion of metakaolin also. Hemp clay is a composite of chopped hemp hurds and clay. From the sustainability perspective, hemp clay has an edge over hempcrete. Clay is much more abundant than lime. Also, lime needs to be mixed with water to act as a binder. Clay does not need that.
Hemp hurds make excellent animal beddings. Whether you own a stable full of horses or a pet hamster, cleaning their bedding cum toilet is a tedious and strenuous task. It’s been customary to use straw or pine for any animal that needs bedding. Pine or straw bedding gets dirty easily and needs cleaning often. It is not just a matter of a foul smell. Animals can get infections if their bedding is left unclean for too long. Animal bedding made from hemp hurds offers a superior alternative. Hemp hurds are more absorbent than pine or straw. Bedding made with hemp hurds can take up to four times its weight. It also lasts longer than straw or pine. Bedding made of hemp hurds is suitable for any animal. Small animals like chicken and duck or mice and hamsters feel as comfortable as horses on bedding made of hemp buds. You can also use the dirty bedding as manure for your garden or fields.
Hemp hurds offer an eco-friendly alternative to a lot of materials we currently use. Plastic is a relevant example. The plastic we currently use is derived from fossil fuels, which are fast depleting. Also, plastic pollution poses great hazards to biodiversity, and even to human health. Hemp hurds as a renewable resource are usable for producing fully biodegradable plastic of different varieties to replace traditional plastic. The auto industry is already using hemp bioplastic as a sustainable alternative. Hempcrete or hemp-clay as insulation and construction materials also have a number of benefits over concrete. They are biodegradable and carbon neutral. The thermal retention capacity of hemp hurds enable them to act as natural airconditioning, saving electricity or gas.
