The ocean of possibilities
Let's revive the hemp culture together!

About the cluster

In a modern way, we continue the Slovak tradition of growing and processing hemp.

We focus on research and development of new hemp products or innovating already-known ones. We are a partner for farmers, industry, and technologically oriented companies. Together we are looking for ways to develop sustainable hemp production, which brings value to people. We do so in a cooperative, circular, and regional manner.

Development of particle board

The technology of pressed boards or panels from hemp shive is a “dry” way of hemp construction.

The first output is the board HEMREC 550. Compared to the usual products, this product brings a lower weight and releases the ecological burden. Prototypes focus on fully compostable binders so the boards can return to the biological cycle at the end of their life cycle. We consider this to be “real” recycling!

Dry Technology

Innovations in construction mixtures

Hemcrete is a “wet” technology that is researched and modified in terms of active ingredients and their ratios, as well as with local resources.

These are modified filler and plaster mixtures that form a complete building system.

Development of machines and equipment

Machines and equipment for the primary processing of hemp stems are a current subject of development, ex.: in their mobile version for use in regional cycles.

Another group involves single-purpose harvesting machines and production lines. These are in use for the production of the mentioned construction materials.
