Hemp Car Developed in Canada

391 ratings | 33204 views
A new car, built largely from hemp, is being billed as the world's most eco-friendly car. The Kestrel has a top speed of just under 60 miles per hour, and can travel around 100 miles before it needs to be recharged. Up to four people can fit in the eco-friendly automobile, and the body, made from hemp fibers, is highly resistant to impact. After a crash, the panels "pop" back into shape, reducing damage. The body of the car was designed by Motive Industries, based in Quebec. Nathan Armstrong, the president of the company, explained "Hemp composite is as strong as the fiberglass in boats, yet incredibly lightweight." Research into how to build a car from hemp was sponsored by a coalition of businesses and schools of engineering. In 1941, Henry Ford designed and built a car made entirely from organic materials, including hemp. Tests showed the car bodies were stronger and weighed less than than comparable models made from steel. Unlike the United States, the government of Canada is actively supporting the growth of the hemp industry in their nation. The plant can be used in more than 50,000 products. Hemp can replace plastic and petroleum in a wide range of uses. The three-door hatchback weighs just 2,500 pounds. A Ford Fusion, which is about the same size, weighs 1,200 pounds more than the Kestrel. This increases fuel efficiency by 25 to 30 percent over traditional designs. Unlike metals, hemp does not need high heat or toxic chemicals to process or shape. This provides a great benefit to the environment over older car designs. #SR Download your free Next News "Heroes & Villains" Poster here: http://nextnewsnetwork.com/the-2013-heroes-villains-posters Donate USD: http://nnn.is/donate-dollars Donate BTC: http://nnn.is/donate-bitcoin LIVE: http://NextNewsNetwork.com Facebook: http://Facebook.com/NextNewsNet Twitter: http://Twitter.com/NextNewsNet Sub: http://NNN.is/the_new_media Meet the Next News Team: http://youtu.be/2QnNKwQ2WkY Hashtag: #N3 About: Next News Network's World News program airs daily at 6pm and 11pm Eastern on Comcast, DirecTV and Over-the-Air and Online at http://NNN.is/on- World News is available to 6 million viewers from South Beach to Sebastian, Florida and to 2 million viewers in Boston, Massachusetts via . broadcasts on RF channel 44 (virtual channel 9) from Palm City and is carried on cable TV channels 44 (SD) and 1044 (HD) by AT&T, on cable channels 17 (SD) and 438 (HD) in West Palm Beach by Comcast, on satellite channel 44 (SD) in West Palm Beach by DIRECTV, and on -Boston which broadcasts on RF channel 38 (virtual channel 6) from the Government Center district in downtown Boston.

Why not use hemp carbon nanofiber batteries in the cars?

why not make these into motorcycles with plastic protective shells around them. For one person to go short distances from there homes.

The whole thing about banning hemp in the USA sickens me. It makes me want to take a hammer and hit my head repeatedly(my head is made from hemp). There is nothing but greed and foolishness in htis ban. A fucking regular car weighs 40% more than one built with hemp? It can probably run on hemp oil fuel as well. 40% weight reduction is huge in terms of gas mileage and the much higher tensile strength of hemp body panel is huge. I live in a world that is backwards. good is bad, day is night, freedom is slavery. I just can't take more of this stupidity. We live in a sick fun house matrix evil clown sock puppet empire. Everyone knows you dont want to save %40 on weight in something like a car. It might save HUGE amounts of fossil fuels. It will also harm the following producers of these products because its so much more efficient and has superior strength/corrosive and god knows what other inherent qualities. Steel/plastics/cotton/food stuffs/paper/building products like wood. It makes me sick.

Mr . Armstrong- Hemp should be 120x Stronger than Fiberglass! (All other variables being equal, the Length of the fiber determines the Strength of the Composite). You can build skyscrapers much higher than steel I-Beams, as the product would be much stronger and much lighter. I am hoping this fact, along with so many others that are in line with President Trump's promised agenda, will encourage His team to end the "temporary " placement of all Cannabis Products on the ridiculous Schedule One level, and follow the findings of the " Shafer Council's recommendation of NO Restrictions, and use the tariffs from the International sales for treatment programs for the REAL Drugs, and treat them like the health problems that they are. Rivals Steel I-Beams in strength at a tenth of the weight means THE WORLD'S HIGHEST (no pun) SKYSCRAPERS AT A FRACTION OF THE COST! @REALDONALDTRUMP...

Wish I knew honestly all things we can use hemp to replace would work. I'm from Alberta myself. I'll never support oil/pipelines... In fact I refuse to drive. Only thing now is to get art supplies Eco friendly and technology Eco friendly.

I'm sold! Have you guys talked to the Vac Train guys at ET3? They have some spiffy You Tubes on their Vac Train tech and I was thinking that maybe a lot of their system could be built using hemp. Have you contacted anybody in the home built airplane hobby about using hemp in some designs with the weight savings and all? Dig my You Tube " Helicopter Model 4 Monocopter".  Think hemp could give me the light weight Maple Seed Rotor that I need to make this a success?

this material would be great for siding on campers, tiny houses, including the frame. It is a fantastic building material. what is taking so long for them to mass produce it?

They should join forces with Angelo DiPietro and power it by COMPRESSED AIR with his "revolutionary" rotary air motor that's up to 97% efficient. There are a few YT vids if you search "enginair" Especially if they can figure out how to make compressed air tanks from hemp, then they could incorporate air storage right into the body panels and frame and the use the weight of the air and passengers to "bounce" energy back into the system? I'm thinking a hinge at the front with a high pressure air pump between the body and drive chassis, maybe some compressors on each wheel for dynamic brakes that link into the energy system along with the drive motors? Lots of POTential in both designs =D

this is great news. I live in Tennessee and our state just legalized growing industrial hemp and I am going to try to grow an acre.I would like to see it grown on a real large scale because its being used in 25,000 products already and can replace a lot of bad plastic ones. what have we been waiting for?.
Barry Kaine (1 year ago)
The actual reason hemp was made illegal in the first place was that John Rockerfeller didn't want hemp oil to be competing with "earth oil" (petroleum), which he was heavily invested in. He formed a cabal with Andrew Carnegie and Randolf Hearst, also corporate magnates with products they didn't want to compete with hemp (Pulp, Steel, Alcohol,etc.). They conspired with H. Anslinger, a politician, to make it "illegal". Cannabis prohibition is now in its' 80th year!

if the batteries were changed from acid to lithium the range would double to 200 hundred miles. That's what we are looking for.
Jack Morgan (2 months ago)
jack g and if they were changed from lithium to hemp carbon nanofiber batteries we could go even 10x farther.
