Building with hemp | Joni Lane | TEDxCharlottesville



This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Hempcrete/Responsible Design

Joni Lane, LEED Green Associate, is a recent graduate of Boston Architectural College with a Masters in Sustainable Design Studies. She is passionate about creating valuable, sustainable and regenerative solutions by which humans can continue to live without threatening to render our planet uninhabitable. She believes great design has the power to change the world and has decided to focus her energy on healing our built environment with bio-based materials, specifically Hempcrete. Focusing on addressing indoor contaminants and their effect on our health, She strives to advance education and awareness of this very important public health issue to promote safe and healthy buildings.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  1. Who is Indian that watching this ,let us know each other hemp is the major amounts gonna be produce by India (himalaya valley's) and other parts of India

  2. While not wishing to be bound by any one theory or combination of theories, after instant inventor experimentation, it is accepted as true by the inventor that: the timing, sequence, and range of shoot-to-root temperature differentials selected during plant development and the gas mixture humidity about a plant shoot may be utilized to improve, modify, and/or alter, at least one physical characteristic of a bast fiber of a plant grown utilizing the shoot-to-root temperature differential; and, thereby improve the bast fiber of a plant grown for industrial, scientific, and medical purposes.

    While not wishing to be bound by any one theory or combination of theories, after instant inventor experimentation, it is accepted as true by the inventor that while maintaining a plant root system below approximately 55°F; and providing a shoot temperature and humidity of or in four general categories: low temperature with low humidity (cold and dry), low temperature and high humidity (cold and wet), high temperature and low humidity (hot and dry), and high temperature and high humidity (hot and wet); may be utilized to improve, modify, and/or alter, at least one physical characteristic of a bast fiber of a plant grown for industrial, scientific, and medical purposes.

    While not wishing to be bound by any one theory or combination of theories, after instant inventor experimentation, it is accepted as true by the inventor that while maintaining a plant root system above approximately 60°F; and providing a shoot temperature and humidity of or in four general categories: low temperature with low humidity (cold and dry), low temperature and high humidity (cold and wet), high temperature and low humidity (hot and dry), and high temperature and high humidity (hot and wet); may be utilized to improve, modify, and/or alter, at least one physical characteristic of a bast fiber of a plant grown for industrial, scientific, and medical purposes.

  3. Ford made a car from hemp almost 100 years ago, we're just getting back to what we should've been doing this past century

  4. This building material should be all over the news. With its co2 absorbing properties, both in growing it and after construction, we can combat global warming easily.

  5. I am the CREATORS 'healing' warrior.
    I came forwards with how GOLD and PLATINUM were created to 'prove' my brain injury is being restored with THC so earth can be restored by growing HEMP.
    How else could a 5.5 TBI patient do this ?
    ADVANCE HUMANITY
    Growing HEMP will restore the 'soil', will restore the 'atmosphere'.
    Will create BIO-DEGRADABLE plastics.
    RESTORE EARTH
    This is the only way I can get this message out; HEMP plastics is the future for earth.
    LET IT BE KNOWN;
    I wrecked my Harley not wearing my helmet that stopped my heart 3 times, crushed my chest breaking all my ribs multiple times puncturing both lungs, put me into an 87 day coma waking with a 5.5 brain injury requiring relearning life. Once returning home I tried having my doctor do an MRI of my brain to compare to my wreck. He refused telling me that BIG PHARMA will financially destroy any doctor that proves THC restores brain injuries.
    This upset me so much that I taught myself MOLECULAR SCIENCE and went to the gold shop in KALISPELL MONTANA showing JB how copper transitioned into gold. This got me kicked out and he told 'city council' that I am making FOOLS GOLD from copper pass tests
    Boiling water proves that 'heat' excites MOLECULES allowing ATOMS to escape.
    This is how copper transitions into GOLD and nickel into PLATINUM.
    Earth must be restored by growing HEMP world wide.
    ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM

  6. cut the BS lady.. how do you finish the interior/exterior? does it crack when it dries, is it elastic after? how about after a small earthquake? does it need additional thermo isolation? (16inch wall is pretty thick. 0.07 lambda for 16inch i assume? ). No vapor barrier required interior/exterior? is it good for isolation under the roof?

  7. Everyone that is still watching this in 2k19 needs to go and watch joe Rogan's video he just posted about joe Biden not liking weed and he explains why it got a bad rap for no reason

  8. Now Hemp IS legalized. And, what's more important, the most important politician in America, Mitch O-Connell, has a home-state reason to promote it.
