13th International Conference of the
European Industrial Hemp Association

1 - 2 June 2016, Wesseling near Cologne, Germany

++ tentative programme is online ++

The industrial hemp business is growing every year. The strong fibres are used for insulation materials and biocomposites, mainly in automotive interiors. Hemp food products are increasing in market volume and with the extraction of Cannabidiol (CBD) for pharmaceutical applications, farmers can maximise profits. The conference language is English. As in the past conference in 2015, we are expecting again more than 230 participants.

The conference will focus on the latest developments concerning industrial hemp and other natural fibres as well as hemp seeds, oil, proteins and pharmaceuticals.

Call for papers

You are welcome to present your latest products, technologies or developments. Please bear in mind that all participants are experts and specialists within this field.
