More about Paul at

Klara has been a government licensed hemp researcher and grower for 10 years. She was a finalist in the Northern Rivers Regional Development Board's (NRRDB) Innovation Awards in 2008 for her research into regional hemp farming models and her work with UNSW, to develop hemp masonry building materials and construction methods for the Australian market. Her goal was to develop a hemp housing material for affordable social housing.

The lime based binder for the building material was developed in collaboration with her brother Marton Marosszeky at UNSW's Centre for Construction Innovation. The material has gone through testing both at the university and in a number of exposed structures. The first home currently being built with the material is situated at Billen Cliffs in Northern NSW.
