Thank you for your contest entry. We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the contest.
We, the Judges, have strongly considered your proposal and found that it contained intriguing elements; however, we have chosen to not advance it to the next round of competition.
We encourage you to keep developing your idea. Transfer your proposal to the Proposal Workspace to re-open it, make edits, add collaborators, and even submit it into a future contest. You can do so by logging into your account, opening your proposal, selecting the Admin tab, and clicking “Move proposal”.
We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Semi-Finalists and finalists, and even volunteer to join one those teams if you have relevant expertise. During the voting period, you can help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. The Climate CoLab will be opening more contests in the coming months, and you are welcome to submit your proposals to those contests as well.
Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.

This is a thoughtful idea, and does create a solution for sequestering carbon in concrete. The idea as described suggests that there is working feasibility and economics. I'm not sure the numbers suggest that it is an important climate change strategy - please add some specifics in relation to the need and available market for helpcrete. The multiple proposals associated with hempcrete are difficult to piece together - making it possible for this one to stand alone would make it more effective. There are also other concrete replacement strategies, such as phase-changing salts that add to building demand flexibility.
