CannaSystems has assembled a list of industrial sectors that can use the products made from the fibre or core hurd. These include Fibre and Core categories for Household items , Paper products, Technical textile, Construction materials, Bio-composites and more. Companies across a wide range of industries are potential candidates for industrial hemp applications. Industrial size contracts are now available: fibre contracts 2,000 tons per year - core chip contracts 40,000 tons per year. These are annual contracts worth millions of dollars. New inquiries for industrial applications are coming in on a regular basis.
Classic "chicken and egg" scenario. In order to fill an industrial size order, one must have sufficent crops in the ground. Then the harvesting and processing capacity to meet the specifications are required. Having acres of hemp is only valuable if you can reap the harvest. Taking the tops off the plant with a combine works - dumps the leaf in the windrow behind the machine and keeps the seed in the hopper. When that has been done, the stalk left standing must be mowed, dried and baled. Bales are then processed, separating the stalk into fibre and core. Once all of this is accomplished, large scale contracts are available.
