Nationally, cannabis legalization is assisting the Canadian hemp industry by providing incentives in terms of investment and research & development grants. Changes in the cannabis regulations are encouraging many farm operations to consider growing industrial hemp crops. The recent 2018 Farm Bill in the US will serve the same function and help expand the hemp sector across North America.
Specialized farm machines to efficiently handle industrial hemp crops are required. Modern harvesting and processing equipment for the industry is under-developed in today’s market. Mechanical decortication equipment, ranging from small stand-alone units to larger stationary and mobile systems, is needed in the sector. This is KEY to developing the industrial hemp market.
Our objective is to advance hemp sector technology with this Alliance project
This strategic alliance is a small group of interested parties who have, or are about to have, an immediate need for industrial hemp decortication solutions. Specifically the alliance is initially focused on the “R-2” mechanical decorticator project as outlined below.
We are inviting a select group of hemp farm owners, processors, manufacturers and companies to participate in this alliance. Building hemp sector equipment provides the tools and systems that are lacking to process stalk efficiently into fibre and core material streams for adoption into existing manufacturing operations.
This will be limited to 10 Alliance members in North America. When the first phase is completed, we will offer units to the larger market.
