As Jack Herrera once said, “I don’t know if hemp is going to save the world, but it’s the only thing that can.” Bruce Dietzen, creator of the Renew Sports Car, Founder of Carbon Negative Fiber is about to quantify that with his Drawdown Hemp Project.

In a bid to win the Musk Foundation’s $100 Million X Prize for Carbon Removal, Bruce has built a coalition of entrepreneurs from all disciplines of the hemp industry to develop a consensus on the carbon sequestering power of hemp.

An acre of hemp can sequester tons of carbon. Couple that with the carbon being avoided by not producing materials with conventional methods and the potential for drawdown is huge.
