Advanced Materials

Natural materials transform into amazing things; so take a look at some of the advanced materials our team explores in partnership with High Standard Labs.

Close-up view of hempcrete, one of the advanced materials created by Bio Fiber Industries.


Combining the inner woody core of the hemp plant, known as the hurd or shiv, with lime and water, creates hempcrete. The resulting bio-composite material is lightweight, durable, and provides excellent insulation properties, and therefore it is often used in construction for walls, floors, and insulation panels.

Hemp Fiber Composites

Hemp fibers reinforcing various materials create hemp fiber composites—materials known to be lightweight, strong, and environmentally friendly. Significantly, in the automotive industry, hemp fiber composites regularly appear in interior panels, dashboards, and door panels. Additionally, many manufacturers of furniture, sports equipment, and packaging materials include hemp fiber composites in their products, as well.
