Climate solutions. Reverse mining the atmosphere and property development. (Stage 3, Stage 4)

On Demand

Can hemp and bamboo based concrete make a greener future?


As part of the Powerhouses 100 Climate Conversations weekly podcast, selected innovators have presented simple positive messages to schools about what can be done to save our planet.

Brendan CONDON began his career in criminology helping people reintegrate into society via reforestation. His goal is now to explore ways in which we can live fossil fuel free. This includes reverse mining the atmospere by absorbing excess carbon. How? Sustainable property development such as that found in The Cape in Victoria, rooftop gardens in cities and fast rotation crops more suited to extreme weather events including bamboo and hemp for greener 3D concrete printed houses.

This is an edited recording of an interview on Monday 26 July 2023 from Powerhouse.





Brendan Condon is the Director of Australian Ecosystems, Biofilta, The Sustainable Coffee Company, Melbourne Skyfarm, The Cape Sustainable Housing Project and partner in Integrated Sustainability Consulting
