    Hempcrete-board Plenums Worth Trying?

    Environmental variables are a major cause of disease, which leads me to my question for this forum: "Are Hempcrete-board Plenums a viable solution for air quality and long-term efficiency?"

    Keep in mind hemp homes are healthier and more efficient utilizing a natural mixture of hemp shiv/hurd, lime, sand and water; yielding properties that are excellent lightweight insulation, antimicrobial, fire retardant, CO2 sequestering, ionized air, balanced moisture in the air.

    Would the construction of round hempcrete return and supply plenums with a lime rendering over the interior and exterior sides be a worthy long-term investment if they cost 50% less than rigid metal and cure the air and those that breathe it...potentially?

    Thanks for your KIND views and considerations on this revolutionary topic...possibly.

    I’ve never heard of hempcrete. Is it a product recommended or approved for ducts?

    There = not here. Their = possessive pronoun. They're = they are
    It's = contraction of it is. Its = the possessive form of it
    Too = also. To = expressing motion. Two = 2
    Then = after that, next. Than = indicates a comparison.

    If its porus won't make as good a duct product. it also sounds like it has organic material in it, which is food for mold, etc.
