RPI Researchers Awarded $1.5M To Produce Hemp-Based Insulated Siding

Sustainably improving energy efficiency subject of multi-year federal DOE grant
Researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) will use hemp to develop a commercially viable, durable, and low-embodied-carbon insulated siding product to address what the U.S. Green Building Council says is a “crucial need for building retrofits to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.”
