Building a factory to produce plastic pellets using agricultural waste from food crops
To provide more consistent, higher quality outputs, and reduce the cost of production
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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE BUSINESS PROCESS?
Pay flax and hemp farmers for the stalks created as a wasted by-product of food crops.
Bales of stalk are stored on the farmers field until they are brought to the facility for processing
Crush / grind / filter / comb / sieve / cut the stalk into fibers, blend the fibers with polymers and produce bio-composite plastic pellets
Sell the pellets to plastic product manufacturers
ARE THERE COMPETITORS?
There are suppliers of hemp fiber bio-composite plastic pellets in Europe:
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
HempFlax: 2 production facilities in Europe
Trifilon: supplier to high performance plastic manufacturers
HOW ARE THE FIBERS PROCESSED?
Mechanically using multiple automated machines
Filtering, sieving, vaccum
Splitting, pulling, straightening
WHEN WILL COMMERCIAL OPERATIONS BEGIN?
It will take 1 year to have the equipment manufactured in Europe
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?
Recent improvement in technology improve performance of hemp fiber bio-composite plastic
Incremental improvement of European stalk processing and plastic compounding technology has not been demonstrated to North America.
CAN CIHC'S HEMP PLASTIC BE USED FOR HEMP PLASTIC BOTTLES
Yes! CIHC's plastic pellets can be used to make reusable bottles
CAN YOU HELP MAKE HEMP PLASTIC STRAWS?
Yes. CIHC's large scale, automated fiber processing and pellet manufacturing facility will reduce the cost and make hemp plastic straws more popular.
WHAT ARE THE MOST POPULAR HEMP PLASTIC PRODUCTS?
Hemp plastic car parts, hemp plastic shelves, hemp plastic garbage bins, and hemp plastic packaging.
WHAT IS CIHC'S HEMP PLASTIC
CIHC's hemp plastic is 20% hemp fibers and 80% PP. It is 25% more eco-friendly than talc/PP.
DOES CIHC HAVE A STOCK SYMBOL
CIHC stock is available to investors on wefunder.com, a platform for private and pre-ipo companies
HOW TO START A HEMP PLASTIC BUSINESS?
If you'd like to start a hemp plastic business, email us at email@example.com and we will help you as much as we can.
IS HEMP PLASTIC BIODEGRADABLE?
CIHC can produce plastic pellets made from flax and hemp fibers, and starch based biodegradable polymers to supply plastic manufacturers with 100% biodegradable plastic.
IS HEMP PLASTIC REAL?
Over 13 million cars have been manufactured using plastic parts made with hemp fiber.
IS HEMP PLASTIC VIABLE?
CIHC's hemp plastic pellet has been verified as cost-effective and viable. Testing included production of plastic parts on commercial production equipment.
HOW IS HEMP PLASTIC MADE
CIHC's hemp plastic is made by blending hemp fibers and polymers in a heated tube and then shaping the mix into pellets which harden as soon as they are cooled. These pellets are then fed into injection molding machines by CIHC's clients.
