In 2013, three full-time firefighters from Jersey were researching the combustion of different building materials. Through this research, they came across, `Hempcrete`, a revolutionary sustainable building material made from the woody core of the hemp plant. Hempcrete possesses excellent fire resistant properties, and so became the highlight of their research and gave them a goal; to revive hemp cultivation in Jersey.
