In an interview with UPI, Hemp, Inc. CEO Bruce Perlowin discussed his excitement on entering this sector of the hemp industry, “I’m in heaven that we’re part of the supply chain to make bioplastic. I’ve been an environmentalist and eco-commando since I was in high school.”
Additionally, the article highlights the Company’s operations in both North Carolina, where the hemp bioplastics material is processed and the operations in Oregon, where the company’s processing facility extracts CBD oil.
An excerpt from the article states, “Before bioplastics companies can grow and experiment with hemp-based products, a pathway has to be built from the plant to the plastic, Perlowin said. There are too few hemp processing facilities to generate the raw materials needed by plastic companies, he said.”
