The reassembly of the decortication plant to manufacture industrial hemp in North Carolina is moving along. But like many projects of this size there have been unforeseen delays. No doubt about it though, Hemp, Inc. will manufacture industrial hemp products next year.
This will be a state of the art decortication plant when the plant is completed. A new analysis lab is being built in the facility to improve efficiency and maintain quality control. The lab will house a $70,000 Particle Size Analyzer. This allows us to manufacture industrial hemp products that are of the highest standard.
The big news is that industrial hemp is now legal in North Carolina as of October 31, 2015. David Schmitt, COO of Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC, (wholly owned subsidiary of Hemp, Inc.) is on the Board of Directors of the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Association (NCIHA). He says that they worked diligently on the bill for over a year and a half.[fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”]
The bill allows pilot programs to begin in the state. This is great news for Hemp Inc. Bruce Perlowin had the genius insight to position the plant in N. Carolina even before it was legal. Now we can manufacture the first industrial hemp crops when they are harvested.
Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. is committed to hemp farmers. He is offering to pay 10% above market price for all their hemp crops in the first year. It’s a win-win for all.
In addition, Hemp, Inc. will be a Clean and Green company. We plan on only using organic hemp and natural dies to help the environment.
2016 – the Year Hemp, Inc. will Manufacture Industrial Hemp!
Hemp, Inc. will be ready to manufacture products even before the first hemp crops are ready. Bob Huges, VP of Sales and David Schmitt, COO of Industrial Hemp Manufacturing LLC developed a product using kenaf several years ago for the oil and gas drilling industry called DrillWall™.
DrillWall™ is a ‘Loss Circulation Material’ (LCM) made of micronized kenaf, cellulosic flakes and a natural non-toxic antimicrobial material that provides loss circulation prevention for water-based, synthetic and oil-based drilling fluids in porous and fractured drilling zones. DrillWall™ LCMs will be in the market place early in 2016. Eventually, we will replace kenaf with hemp.
Once the plant is fully operational, it will process up to 40 million pounds per year. DrillWall™ is in high demand because there is a shortage of LCMs available.
We will also produce a “miracle” product called SpillSuck™. According to a Navy study, kenaf and hemp are among the most absorbent materials on the planet. SpillSuck™ literally sucks up oil spills without the use of harsh chemicals.
“We intend on ‘Greening up the Oil Industry’, with all-natural products that actually help the environment,” says David Schmitt.
Raw Hemp Crossing State Lines – Problem Solved
This month Hemp, Inc. announced the prototype of a portable decortication machine. These units will be deployed in the states that can legally grow hemp. Farmers will be able to process hemp stalks in the fields (instead of letting them rot) and enjoy another revenue stream.
The processed fiber can be transported to North Carolina where Hemp, Inc. buys it to manufacture industrial hemp products.
“These are exciting times,” says Bruce Perlowin, “We are bringing a new economy and jobs back to America, and saving the planet at the same time.”
