The Uk government is about to spend more than £500,000 in an attempt to develop the world’s first recyclable vehicle made from hemp in collaboration with Ford and Hemcore, which grows plants closely related to the ones that produce cannabis.
In fact ( for the ones who have no clue about what Hemp can be )Hemp is the common name for plants of the genus Cannabis as a source of industrial, food and other non-drug products, including cultivation information.
The first utilisation of Hemp will be to offer an alternative of internal components such as plastics ( one of the most difficult material to recycle )
Nevertheless this projet won t be so easy to set up : Growing hemp is strictly controlled because of the association with drug use
