A Q&A with Lorenza Romanese, managing director of the European Industrial Hemp Association, who spoke with Let’s Talk Hemp from Brussels.
How did you become interested in hemp and how did your background get you here?
I am knowledgeable about European law, and I am a lobbyist in Brussels. To me, being a lobbyist means to defend and represent the interests of the sector you are working in. I started in oil and gas and was in that sector for four years. Then I was working within the European Commission (the EU’s politically independent executive arm, which promotes the general interest of the EU by proposing and enforcing legislation as well as by implementing policies and the EU budget.) I got bored and then went outside to industry again. I was hired to lobby for the wine industry, and it is a lovely sector, but sometimes if you have to defend a dossier you don’t believe in, you have to step away. After a couple years the European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA) contacted me and, as I learned about it, I got interested in hemp.
Hemp is a tough sector. It changes on a daily basis. Hemp is beneficial for the people, the economy and the planet. I hope to make the Earth a better place by defending the three categories of the industry that we represent: producers (farmers), processors – those who transform hemp into products – and traders, the ones who trade the product around Europe. I defend them to the legislature.

Help Rebuild Ukraine With Hemp
Sergiy Kovalenkov, aka Doctor Hemphouse, one of the world’s renowned specialists in building with hemp, is appealing to the hemp industry for help in rebuilding war-torn Ukraine, including building Ukraine’s biggest social housing project to date — a 10,000-square-foot residential building to house refugees and orphans who lost their parents to the war. In particular, the project is seeking builders, sponsors, automated block-making machinery and a hempcrete spraying system.
