Project PA Hemp Home, nearing completion on New Castle’s East Side, was presented at the Third U.S. Hemp Building Summit in Austin, Texas last week.

Lori Daytner, vice president of program development at DON, addressed the summit, which was attended by 200 natural building professionals, hemp building materials producers and LEED professionals.

The project has a strong following because of interest in the research and testing Pennsylvania Housing Research Center will conduct on the structure’s thermal energy performance and the air quality testing Parsons Healthy Materials Lab (HML) will perform.

Move Aside, Delta-8, Texas Smoke Shops Are Filling Up with Legal Delta-9 THC Products

hemp plant

For Texas smoke shops and other distributors, everything was going just fine selling delta-8 THC and other products like it. Then, the Texas Department of State Health Services showed up and crashed the party.

Last month, DSHS effectively banned THC isomers — chemical variations of the substance in marijuana that gets users high — by announcing that these products, including delta-8, were all Schedule 1 controlled substances. Condemnations and lawsuits followed, but in the meantime, some shops are stocking up on delta-9 products they say are legal and still get consumers stoned.

Microsoft proposes using earth, algae, and hemp to build data centers which store carbon

Concrete creates carbon - other materials could store it.

Data centers and other buildings could be made from materials which store carbon, instead of using carbon-emitting concrete according to research sponsored by Microsoft.

Concrete contributes eight percent of the world’s CO2 emissions, making it a worse polluter than the airline industry. But buildings could replace a lot of their concrete with natural materials which store carbon, including mushrooms, algae hemp, thatch, and plain earth, according to a research document sponsored by Microsoft and produced by the Carbon Leadership Forum (CLF) at the University of Washington.

Texas says popular cannabis extract, delta-8, is illegal, sending retailers scrambling

delta 8 chemical compound

Three years after federal legislation removed the marijuana extract known as delta-8 THC from the nation’s list of controlled substances, Texas health officials have put it on its own list of illegal drugs, sending a shockwave through the growing CBD retail industry across the state and making the substance, essentially, illegal.

Christine Perez, who manages the popular Austin CBD store Lazydaze+Coffeeshop, had no idea about the change until she saw the Texas Department of State Health Services notice on the agency’s website on Oct. 15.

“I was very confused, as well as a bunch of other companies. It’s like, ‘What is going on?’” Perez said. “I really have no idea why [the state] would try to ban it, or the timing of it. We didn’t hear anything about it from the state.”

Romeo Ferraris has introduced a new innovation on its Alfa Romeo Giulias racing in the ETCR using a new hemp fibre body work for the last round of the season at Pau Arnos.

“We were looking at ways to innovate and add new technologies, also adding to a better sustainability for the environment,” team manager Antonio Caruccio told TouringCarTimes.

“The hemp fibre is as light and as robust as carbon fibre, with the performance in terms of safety and shock absorption still high. Teams have used carbon fibre for decades, which is light, robust and does a good job, but there are other materials that add for a greener production of the cars.”
