A Belgian manufacturer of natural and ecological insulation materials based on lime hemp and straw flakes is looking for licensees for its (patent pending) drying system for lime hemp insulation. They are looking for partners worldwide.
The Belgian SME, established in 2015, is a manufacturer of ecological building materials and methods as a full alternative to traditional construction. The products combine ecology, attention to health, durability, affordability, comfort, efficiency and ease of use. They produce insulation based on straw flakes and insulation based on hemp lime. Hemp lime is already well known as insulation but the Belgian SME has developed a new process to dry the hemp lime in only half on hour, using a special drying tunnel. The company is already active in the Netherlands and Portugal. They want to enter new markets and therefore are looking for foreign partners interested in a license agreement
Type (e.g. company, R&D institution…), field of industry and Role of Partner Sought:
The company is looking for partners interested in the production, distribution and commercialisation of sustainable and ecological building materials. The partners should be interested in using the patent pending drying system for hemp under license. Potential partners are insulation manufacturers/installers, construction companies, project developers, producers of sustainable building material or other companies interested in new environmentally sustainable building materials. Extensive training will be foreseen for the licensees.
