Our Impact on the World

Immediate broad scaling of our technologies and products will significantly increase the replacement of talc, glass fibre, and oil/gas derived manufacturing material with carbon sequestering plant materials and thereby help to preserve the natural world and reduce carbon emissions. 


End-users will be able to simultaneously increase their profits, and the desirability of their products.  


A new cash crop for farmers in North America, and increased profits for European and Asian farmers. 


Consumers globally will benefit from the availability of higher performance, lower cost, more sustainable products.

  2. Bales of stalk are stored on the farmers field until they are brought to the facility for processing

  3. Crush / grind / filter / comb / sieve / cut the stalk into fibers, blend the fibers with polymers and produce bio-composite plastic pellets 

  4. Sell the pellets to plastic product manufacturers

ARE THERE COMPETITORS?

  1. There are suppliers of hemp fiber bio-composite plastic pellets in Europe:

    1. Faurecia - a multi billion dollar automotive part manufacturer via a joint venture with a french hemp farming and processing company, to form sister companies Automotive Performance Materials and Fiber Research Development

    2. HempFlax: 2 production facilities in Europe

    3. Trifilon: supplier to high performance plastic manufacturers

HOW ARE THE FIBERS PROCESSED?

  • Mechanically using multiple automated machines

    1. Shredding, crushing

    2. Filtering, sieving, vaccum

    3. Splitting, pulling, straightening

    4. Cutting, milling

WHEN WILL COMMERCIAL OPERATIONS BEGIN?

  1. It will take 1 year to have the equipment manufactured in Europe

  2. It will take 6 months to ship and install 

WHY IS HEMP FIBER BIO-COMPOSITE PLASTIC DESIRABLE?

It is lighter, stronger, more sustainable, and less expensive than traditional plastics.

DOES THE BUSINESS HAVE A MOAT?

Founder and CEO Robert Ziner developed a patent pending system to improve the profitability of the existing, high throughput, automated processing line.

HOW DOES THE PATENT PENDING TECHNOLOGY WORK?

Scanners evaluate characteristics of the material at multiple stages of the production process to increase the quality and consistency of the products supplied to clients.

WHY IS NOBODY DOING THIS IN NORTH AMERICA ALREADY?

  1. Recent improvement in technology improve performance of hemp fiber bio-composite plastic

  2. Incremental improvement of European stalk processing and plastic compounding technology has not been demonstrated to North America.
