Fiber and Hurd
Fiber and Hurd - The stalk of the hemp plant is broken out into three sections, each of which is processed for different applications. The exterior of the stalk has two types of fibers. The long fibers are ideal for creating long-lasting and durable products such as rope, netting and canvas. The balance of the fibers are used for fuels as well as paper products and cardboard. The interior of the stalk has industrial applications such as being used in chemical absorbents, insulation and concrete. At the Nisku facility, we can also produce 1.6 million kgs per year of hemp fiber and hurd for sale into the industrial market. This allows us to achieve our goal of whole plant utilization, with zero waste.
