Hemp Sequestration Blockchain Helps Farmers Enter Carbon Markets
By Elizabeth Lunt
Tech entrepreneur Tim de Rosen is concerned about the warming temperature of the Earth and notes that efforts to slow the rise have faltered, with temperatures likely to breach the 1.5-degree Celsius increase limit set by the Paris Agreement, an international climate change treaty.
In a bid to help rein in global warming, the London-based de Rosen founded ClimaFi in 2022. ClimaFi has developed technology platforms that allow hemp farmers, among others, to take advantage of the global carbon credit market. Carbon credits allow farmers – and entities ranging from companies to countries – to emit a certain amount of carbon and can be traded if the full allowance is not used.
New England Builder Sees Huge Potential for Carbon Capture in Hemp Houses
HempStone‘s Tom Rossmassler is passionate about addressing embodied carbon in home construction. He spoke to Let’s Talk Hemp from Northampton, Massachusetts.

How did your career lead you to hemp?
I’ve been involved with building and construction since the early ‘90s and have always tried to steer clients to local and natural products. I didn’t know about embodied carbon when I started, but I was interested in natural building practices. When I moved outside Boston and was working as an appraiser and doing some real estate transactions, I became involved with the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association and started to learn more about reducing operational carbon in buildings.
I learned about Energy Star and then LEED certification for homes and started a worker cooperative focused on building performance. That company, Energia, was part of the first Living Building challenge for the regenerative built environment on the East Coast.

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.
