Las Vegas, NV, March 15, 2022 Better clothing, better food, better gadgets. .is there anything hemp can’t do?
Today, the benefits of hemp-based batteries and how a group of American and Canadian researchers used hemp bast fiber (the inner bark of the plant that usually ends up in landfill) to develop a battery that has been used in cars and power tools.
According to Return to Now, the researchers “cooked the woody pulp and processed them into carbon nanosheets, which they used to build supercapacitors on a par with or better than graphene which is the industry gold standard.”
Las Vegas, NV, Feb. 22, 2022, The dream green building material for many building professionals may be one step closer to being certified as one of the United States’ national building materials in the US building codes, as reported that hempcrete was submitted as an appendix in the International Residential Codes (IRC) last month by the US Hemp Building Foundation.
It is possible to reach carbon negativity — but it will take a coordinated effort to reduce emissions from their source and a significant number of offsets to get there.
One of the best ways to realistically reach carbon negativity is to employ different methods of carbon reduction to complement lowering emissions from the source. These include nature-based solutions, enhanced nature solutions, and direct air carbon capture — all of which can be done directly by companies, or through offsetting projects, which is typically easier and more verifiable.
It takes effort, a coordinated approach, and conscious investment — both of money and time — to reach true carbon negativity. But it is possible, as some major brands and corporations are proclaiming they will reach this goal as early as 2030.
How Can Companies and Individuals Reach Carbon Negative Goals?
There are many simple and practical ways for people and companies to get within striking distance of being carbon negative. From there, it is up to them to make the extra effort to achieve this status associated with offsetting more carbon than they emit.
First things first, make sure all energy used in direct operations comes from renewables or other carbon-free sources, such as nuclear. This applies to company activities that directly use energy and individual activities that use energy within the home.
Next, it is imperative to reduce indirect emissions as much as possible. For a company, this can be done by reviewing a supply chain to find suppliers and logistics that create less emissions or by limiting employee Scope 3 emissions, such as those attributable to commuting to and from work. For individuals, this can be done by making smart choices outside the home, from riding that bike to eating that locally grown food.
Lastly, after you’ve tallied up the total carbon footprint for yourself or your company, invest in more offsets than the amount of carbon emitted. It is important to ensure that the offsets you purchase are verified and of good quality, ideally with co-benefits for nature and communities in areas that they are generated. Remember: one credit typically equals 1 metric ton of carbon removed from the atmosphere — you just need to buy one more credit than tons you’ve emitted to reach carbon negative status.
