Western Australia’s Hemp Squared Gets State Government Grant


An alternative building materials manufacturer specialising in hemp blocks has received support from the Western Australian Government. Hemp Squared was founded by engineer and entrepreneur Iggy Van. The blocks his company are developing are made with hempcrete, which is a mix of industrial hemp hurd (the woody core of the plant), lime and water. Among hempcrete’s many benefits are low thermal conductivity, fire resistance, pest resistance, noise dampening, natural moisture regulation and of course, it’s very sustainable. Building blocks are just one application for hempcrete, and for using hemp in building generally. Hemp Squared was recently awarded a $100,000 Regional Economic Development (RED) Grant by WA Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan and the Department of Primary Industries to expand its manufacturing facilities in Bridgetown, which is approximately 270 kilometres south of Perth.
