Will We Ever See Hemp Cars on the Road?

 Key Points

  • Researchers have known about climate change for up to 200 years
  • Henry Ford wanted to create an environmentally friendly car, with hemp as one of the materials
  • An attempt to popularize cars made from hemp has failed to get off the ground
  • Major car manufacturers use hemp in their automobiles, but only in tiny amounts
  • Cost and concerns over tensile strength are among the reasons we don’t have hemp cars on the road

Hemp has anywhere between 25,000 and 50,000 uses, depending on who you believe. Hempcrete is beginning to impact the construction industry, while the plant could also play a massive role in textile manufacturing.
