Experimenting with organic alternatives to typical building materials is nothing new. In fact, alternative energy vehicles are a thing of the past.

As the auto industry transitions from fossil fuels to renewable energy, it’s no wonder the auto industry wants hemp products to power the next generation of vehicles. It’s less costly than petroleum based plastics, more renewable than fossil fuels and mineral based materials, and can be used in nearly every aspect of manufacturing.

From hemp plastics strong enough to replace steel and concrete to biofuel capable of powering cars and homes all over the planet, hemp can literally replace plastic and nearly any other commodity we use today. And, it’s quickly becoming the commodity of the future.

Since hemp is carbon negative, meaning it removes carbon from the air- it is not only better for the environment, it helps heal it from pollution and could potentially reverse climate change. For hemp-powered cars, that means the more you drive, the better it is for the environment. The carbon dense hemp fibers are also what make it incredibly strong. In fact 3.5 times stronger than petroleum based plastics and five times lighter.

This is why the automotive industry wants hemp products. Not only will it help them easily meet new emissions standards, but they can do it with higher safety ratings on lightweight vehicles with more durable fabric interiors, and at a lower cost.

Hemp Powered Cars – A Thing of the Past

Nearly a century ago in 1941, Henry Ford introduced his first Model-T car designed to run on hemp biofuel. An experiment 12 years in the making, he finally created a prototype that not only ran on hemp products, but was constructed from 70% cellulose fibers of plant materials including wheat, sical and hemp. The only steel was its tubular frame.

And not only that, but the hemp based plastic he created was ten times more impact resistant than the steel door panels used at the time. You can even watch a video proving the strength of Ford’s invention here.

Ford’s unveiling of his plastic car coincided with other industries that were making the switch from mineral based materials like steel and iron, to plastic and paper. In addition to the invention of a hemp-powered car made of plastic, manufacturers everywhere were exploring a multitude of parts and products that would replace non-renewable commodities.

From Farm to Ford and Beyond

Hemp is the past and future of the automobile industry.

In 1929, Henry Ford began an experimental program within his company that would help boost the economy and benefit the agricultural community that was devastated during the Dust Bowl years. Ford had roots in farming, and strongly believed that industry and agriculture could have a symbiotic relationship.

“Ford’s only orders were to find ways to convert farm products to Ford products,” Michael Davis wrote  in a 1972 issue of Special Interest Autos. In his effort to save money on manufacturing, he could also create revenue for the farms he felt indebted to.

Why Aren’t We Using More Hemp Based Products Now?

While fossil fuel costs are kept low with subsidies, hemp products, for the most part, remain costly luxury items.

If hemp works so well in manufacturing, why did the Ford company wait until 2014 to revisit the notion of plastic vehicles when it is technology their funder invented? Because shortly after Henry Ford’s death, lobbyists for Big Oil muscled into the chambers of Congress to grab hold of the industry and control consumerism by lobbying for subsidies that would keep gas prices attainable.

Interestingly, despite over a decade of researching and developing his plastic car, no exact recipe of how Ford created his world-changing invention was ever found. And if it was, only Big Oil stood to benefit from its disappearance.

Today, the oil industry is subsidized by the government, making the gasoline and petroleum based products we use more affordable. But eliminate those subsidies and they can’t compete with the hemp industry, which receives no subsidies at all.

Farmers also are incentivised to grow massive soy fields for other more renewable sources of raw material, which is a strong competitor of the industrialized hemp market which is only emerging from the 2018 Farm Bill that legalized it for commercial purposes.

What Is the Future of Hemp Products in the Auto Industry?

Hemp is the past and future of the automobile industry. Companies are realizing that consumers want renewable energy sources and environmentally friendly choices. Industry “Greenwashing”, the deceitful practices used to entice buyers under the assumption that a product is sustainable when it is not, is no longer good enough. 

Bruce Dieztzen, President of Renew Sports Cars, was inspired by Henry Ford’s hemp-fueled vision. In 2017 Dietzen introduced his small but mighty red sports car on an episode of “Jay Leno’s Garage.”

“Most folks are unaware that for every pound of carbon fiber produced, 31 pounds of CO2 is dumped into the atmosphere. That’s totally unsustainable,” Dietzen told Green Camp, adding that his company is focused on making “advanced third-generation hemp reinforced biocomposites.”  Deitzen says this will help any manufacturer currently using steel, aluminum, fiberglass, and carbon fiber to make greener products.

According to the Renew Sports Cars website, when hemp is used to manufacture durable goods, the CO2 that hemp removes from the atmosphere is locked away- a process called carbon sequestering. “Making everything we can from hemp is an effective means of reversing climate change,” Deitzen asserts. It just took nearly a century for the rest of the world to catch up.
