With Kenaf Partners USA's utilization of our marketing idea for small business, kenaf is well on its way to becoming much more recognizable as a valuable commodity worldwide. Kenaf, along with hemp are the most versatile fiber producing plants for a whole new generation of end product industries. Relatively unknown just a year ago, kenaf is now accessible to the general population via our first two kenaf books: Seeds For Life and Seeding The World.
Kenaf, Seeds For Life was a number one best seller on Amazon when it was first published in 2018.
Kenaf, Seeding The World followed the success of the first book in 2019 and was enthusiastically received and translated into French for educational purposes in order to help establish a paper industry in Togo, Africa.
In 2020, our Books Make Booms marketing idea for small business brings you-- Kenaf, Housing The World. It will be the third book in the kenaf series written and published by QuickTurtle Books® in partnership with Kenaf Partners USA.
This book is meant to open wide the communication lines for the basic establishment and utilization of kenaf in the construction trades. Kenaf-crete’s versatility and ease of use have many advantages over traditional construction practices. Kenaf/hemp fibers and core are being realized for these purposes and home building from kenaf-crete and hemp-crete has the potential for exponential growth well into the future.
With the advent of 3-D printing it seems that the sky's the limit when it comes to the building potentials in this medium. Used as printing stock, kenaf fiber can construct homes as well as furnish them with modern plant based plastics and fiber compounds for making just about anything.
Hemp-crete already has a foothold in the construction trades with company's like Hempitecture with their goals for eco-friendly and sustainable housing. Hempitecture offers education workshops for a new generation of professional contractors interested in pursuing careers in the hemp-crete building industry. Hempitecture’s workshop attendees have come from all parts of the world in order to be trained as hemp building experts.
Books Make Booms is currently in talks with Hempitecture’s CEO Tommy Gibbons for the creation of a hemp-crete custom book. We’d love to partner with and help Hempitecture achieve their lofted goals and purposes for housing. Their entrepreneurial spirit is truly on the forefront of the hemp and kenaf explosion soon to come.
Biodegradable hemp-plastic upgrades from traditional fossil fuel plastics is the realm of a company called Zeoform . Zeoform is a revolutionary cellulose based material that has the potential to change everything. Made from cellulose fibers and water – and absolutely nothing else, their patented process converts cellulose fibers into an industrial strength moulding material capable of being formed into an unlimited array of products.
Zeoform is 100% non-toxic, biodegradable, compostable and ‘locks up’ carbon into beautiful, functional forms.
Kenaf is a perfect marriage for producing the cellulose fibers needed and used in the Zeoform process.
Supplying this rumbling volcano of an industry with kenaf and hemp fibers will be a welcome boon for many farmers of the future willing to make the leap to kenaf as a rotational cash crop as described in Kenaf, Seeding The World.
Kenaf, Housing The World is getting much closer to reality through the use of our marketing idea for small business. Our kenaf-crete book will go to press this spring, 2020.
