During his Master’s, he studied the environmental impact of Hempcrete, and is now expanding the study during his PhD. He’ll be presenting some of the current research held in Israel, focusing on the thermal performance and life-cycle analysis of hempcrete in an arid climate, as well as a short overview of the local industry.
