Joining the KTP can support your organisation in adhering to the criteria of the assessment, earning your company green credentials and access to the UK Emission Trading Scheme for the sustainable efforts. 

Knowledge Transfer Partnership

Bio-Material, Supply Chains & Sustainability

Stage 1

Theory

4 weeks

3 Days a week

Phase 1:

In the theory element of the bio-material & sustainability course, you will receive a revision workbook equipped with an appendix, references and articles where you will learn all about industrial hemp and the relationship between construction and the agriculture industries. 

Phase 2:

In the final 2 weeks of the theory stage, you will complete 5 exam modules on how to utilise production crops like industrial hemp to provide a net-zero bio-alternative product chain. You will become educated on the current environmental impact of the construction sector and what you can due during your career to help counteract and improve the impact. This includes how to source, handle and install bio-based materials using prefabrication methods.

Stage 2

Practical

6 weeks

5 Days a week

Phase 1:

During the practical phase of the course, you will swap your work-book for work-boots. During the first half of the course, you will be practicing the installation of prefabricated hempcrete panels at the demonstration site. You must assemble the dwelling 20 times during this phase, working progressively more independent until the 20th installation.

Phase 2:

During the second half of the practical, you will spend it on a real construction site, fitting a prefabricated house or a real client. You must complete the prefabrication of 3 dwellings under the supervision of the Employer Partner before being able to pass this course. 

The 3 E-Merits

The 3 E-Merits represent the Ecological, Economical & Ergonomical Performance of a development project. 

Ecological Merit

  1. Source resources locally
  2. Demonstrate energy efficiency 
  3. Use of bio-based alternative materials
  4. Source from net zero supply chains
  5. Provide a Life-long Carbon Assessment

Economical Merit

  1. Utilise the carbon credit blockchain or access the UK Emission Trade Scheme
  2. Deliver your project under budget 


Ergonomical Merit

  1. Incorporate the use of prefabrication or 3D printing in the structure development
  2. Deliver your project ahead of schedule

Ecological Performance

Bespoke Hempcrete Elements have a wide spectrum of positive environmental impacts.

Attributes include being bio-composite and non-hazardous - with an unmatched carbon  negative potential of 138kg per m2 / 69t per 500m2. An all-in-1 pressed material that combats fuel poverty, bringing down the development cost and operational cost of entire projects.

Economic Performance:

It is widely understood that current construction practices leave a significant amount of money on the table. From souring energy bills caused by water & electricity wastage, surplus material wastage, excessive on-site labour time and delays in segregated material delivery time. Building with Hempcrete elements provides a turn-key-solution to erasing these inefficiencies. The carbon negative attributes of hemp, enables the construction sector to incorporate a whole new revenue stream through the UK Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) and advancements in Fintech. The Carbon Credit Blockchain can be utilised to validate and reward CC via the UKETS. Here, both industries (farmers & builders) can enter the blockchain at an Onchain level to stock / trade emissions with other buyers on a public ledger.

Ergonomical Performance:

Hempcrete is proven to fully optimise on-site labour efficiency thanks to it’s proficient drop-in-place pre-installation functionality.

A typical 120m3 dwelling can be fully erect upon it’s foundations within 7-days or less – a process that conventionally takes months.

Rapidly freeing up skilled trade workers to advance onto other development projects. As a result, this simple design change from a cost-effective decision, will not only make projects more feasible and lucrative, it will also increase the projects all round deliverability.

Bio-Construction

Hempcrete is a bio-composite carbon negative substitute product to concrete cement. It sequesters between 110-165kg of CO2 per m2 and can be forged into an all-in-1 pressed material. Coming fully equipped  with naturally built in outstanding thermal and sound insulation properties, as well as being naturally fire, damp, pest and mould resistant that amply meets the building decree. This is all thanks to its irregular breathable micro-structure and lime binder. Making it a preferred, superior material for the next generation of construction.

Prefabrication 

Prefabricating buildings boosts labour efficiency ten fold. With drop-in-place pre-installation functionality, construction of a typical 120m3 dwelling using prefabrication methods can have the building fully assembled in 7 days or less. A process that conventionally takes months.

The ergonomics in this approach enables the freeing up of trade-workers to advance on to other projects, alleviating both the labour shortage as well as the material shortage due to sourcing from alternative bio-based net zero supply chains. The finished product comes as an all-in-one pressed material, this reduces the common probability of surplus material orders for optimal resources efficiency.

Agriculture 

In times of such crisis, coalitions between industries are expected to find new eco-solutions that can sustain next generational growth. 

Utilising arable farm land to supply the construction sector with bio-based materials will alleviate supply chain issues, improve the environmental impact of development projects and even increase the fertility and yield of follow on crops for the farmer. More capacity for processing and manufacturing is needed for UK uptake, which will come in due course as demand and solutions become more apparent.

Bio-Based Net Zero Supply Chains

The supply chains holding up the construction industry are inadequate to facilitate the increasing level of growth and demand. 

Manufacturers operating at over capacity naturally results in price surges, add this to the required LCA and new carbon tax, it becomes apparent that new, local and biological supply chains are a must to ensure the delivery of both affordable and sustainable developments.

Educating trade firms and workers on how, when and why to source from alternative, sustainable supply chains are essential for the industry.

Fintech

The fintech industry provides many new and unique opportunities for the construction sector to unlock new streams of revenue. From De-Fi, DAO's, NFT's and more, construction firms can leverage these new tools and application available on the blockchain by a means of demonstrating their relationship with farmers that result in substantial carbon capture efforts that can be validated and paid via the blockchain.

There is much to define still when measuring the level of involvement that fintech will have in the bioconstruction sector, nevertheless a clear potential is there to be explored as farmers access the carbon credit blockchain at a lucrative on-chain level.

Emission Trading Scheme (ETS)

The UK Emission Trading Scheme (ETS) is a cap-and-trade system which caps the total level of greenhouse gas emissions, creating a carbon market with a carbon price signal to incentivise decarbonisation.

Within this cap, participants receive free allowances and/or buy emission allowances at auction or on the secondary market which they can trade with other participants as needed. This can be best performed via the Crypto Carbon Credit Blockchain where carbon credits are certified, rewarded and traded via a decentralised public ledger.
