► Paper

Hemp’s long bast fibers are ideal for pulping into high quality pulp. Because of their tensile strength, hemp fibers are an excellent material for high-end specialized paper products such as tea bags, currency paper, cigarette papers and specialty filters.


Hemp fibers can also be blended with other pulp fibers such as wheat straw or flax or even recycled wood to increase paper performance, strength, and recyclability.

 

► Textiles

Hemp fiber is one of the strongest and most durable of all natural textile fibers. Products made from hemp have been shown to outlast other products by many years. Hemp is extremely strong and holds its shape incredibly well, stretching less than any other natural fiber.


As a fabric, hemp provides all the warmth and softness of a natural textile but with a superior durability found in very few other materials. Textiles made from hemp are extremely versatile and can be used for countless types of apparel, accessories, and shoes ranging from retail to boutique quality.

► Automotive

The automotive industry has been using plant cellulose-based composites and natural materials for decades. Because of its durability and versatility, hemp is an ideal material for automotive applications. Hemp has a high percentage of cellulose compared to wood (57% cellulose versus 40-50% for wood), which makes it a perfect material for many applications within the automotive industry. Hemp's durability also makes it an excellent choice for numerous applications in the friction industry.

 

► Composites

Cellulose, the most abundant organic polymer on this planet, is a principle component in plant-based composites. Once cellulose is extracted from the hemp stalk, it can then be fabricated using methods similar to those used in petrochemical-based plastics, but with much less bio-waste and a significantly smaller carbon footprint. Cellulose can also be mixed with other materials (both synthetic and organic) to create hybrids. It's possible to obtain different degrees of flexibility and strength in the end product by adjusting the amount of hemp cellulose in the composite's make-up.

► Bio Plastics

By manufacturing plastics from renewable, non-toxic, biodegradable hemp cellulose industries not only reduce their carbon footprint but also help ease the burden on our nation's landfills - many of which are operating at or near full capacity. 

 

► Construction

Hempcrete is a mixture of hemp hurds and lime used as a material for construction and insulation. Hempcrete is easier to work with than traditional lime mixes and also acts as an insulator and moisture regulator. It lacks the brittleness of concrete and does not need expansion joints which reduces overall building costs.

Concrete made from hemp is self-insulating, soundproof, non-toxic, pest-resistant, fire-resistant, and mold-resistant. Buildings made with Hempcrete are incredibly durable and energy efficient which reduces costs associated with maintenance, heating and cooling.

► Insulation

Hemp insulates better than many other insulation materials, such as cotton or wool. Unlike many other insulating materials on the market, hemp also absorbs moisture, which reduces humidity and condensation while inhibiting the growth of mold.

 

► Supercapacitor

A supercapacitor is an energy storage device that can produce powerful discharges of energy, needed only in small bursts. Such powerful discharges are used in braking systems of electric vehicles, the powering on of computers, in cordless tools, and also for newer technologies such as rapid phone-charging devices.

The current top-performing supercapacitors use graphene. However, in 2004, Dr. David Mitlin of Clarkson University and researchers at the National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT), discovered that hemp-based supercapacitors outperformed graphene supercapacitors in energy storage by nearly 200%.

► Fuel

Hemp can be used to derive two types of fuel: Biodiesel, which is made from the oil of the hemp seed, and hemp ethanol/methanol, which is made from the fermented hemp stalk. 

Ethanol is made from such things as grains, sugars, starches, waste paper & forest products, and methanol is made from woody matter. through processes such as gasification, acid hydrolysis and enzymes. Hemp can be used to make both ethanol and methanol and their production involves none of the environmental risks associated with the extraction of fossil fuels.
