At a conference, organised by ArchEnerg International Innovative Cluster for Renewable Energy and Building Trade, the participants considered the possibilities of revitalising the hemp production in Hungary.

A number of progressive initiatives have been introduced. We discussed the difficulties and possibilities for the industrial hemp farmers and manufacturers, and we learnt about some high-tech, hemp-based products. Maria Farkas, from IFKA described the circular economy concept and considered how hemp fits into the model.
