The objective of the Northwest European project Grow2build is to support the supply chain of flax and hemp building materials from production of raw material to the production and implementation of end products. Up until now, 11 organisations from Belgium, France, the UK, Germany and the Netherlands have formed a consortium with a wealth of expertise in construction and bio-based building materials. The consortium aims to contribute to the integration of bio-based materials eg. hemp and flax in the construction industry and to improve the product value chain. This note “10 recommendations for stimulating biobased building materials (based on hemp and flax)” is one of the instruments to reach the aim.
