Industrial Hemp Supply Chain

The future of manufacturing and construction will demand sustainable raw materials. Companies across industries are looking for solutions to evangelize new generations of consumers and employees. Heartland Industries is creating an industrial hemp supply chain to help manufacturers across industries build stronger, lighter, cheaper, and more sustainable products.

Our team is focused on working with manufacturers to transition sustainable materials out of research labs and into mass production. Using hemp as an additive to plastics allows companies to easily integrate industrial hemp into existing products.

Foundational Materials

The evolution of humanity comes down to a handful of foundational materials. Concrete allowed us to build high-rises, copper allowed us to harness electricity, and silicon allowed us to create microchips. 

The next frontier of material science will require a compound that unlocks hundreds of high-value use cases that span across every market sector.  The hemp plant provides more structural integrity for less cost than thousands of existing materials in almost every market.

The Shift Across Industry

Industries that have traditionally relied on mined and petroleum-based materials are turning to plant-based alternatives because the production of standard materials is dirty, unsafe, and unsustainable. 

Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) mandates are overtaking boardrooms as executives realize that they have a responsibility to make sustainable and ethical investments.

Supply Constraints

Hemp is a carbon-negative material, but there is a vacuum of scalable production practices. With a limited supply chain, processing facilities have insufficient capacities and high costs. 

Companies typically process hemp in small batches and only focus on wholesaling to a handful of corporations. Industrial hemp processing facilities are vulnerable to market volatility because of limited supply and processing capacities.

Solving The Problem

American manufacturers would love to utilize hemp as an additive, but they don’t currently have a reliable supply chain. This leaves hemp sitting in the R&D departments of large corporations and universities. 

Heartland Industries is creating the first reliable supply chain of hemp-based materials for manufacturers across industries. This will allow hemp to move beyond R&D labs and into end products. This is the shift that American manufacturers have been waiting for. 

We Focus on Providing Manufacturers A Sustainable Source of Hemp Based Additives To Enhance Products They Already Make

Industrial Hemp Processing Facility

Heartland Industries creates high-value hemp-based additives, as well as wholesale and retail products that utilize chemical-free, automated, and scalable processing technologies. Heartland Industries processes the stalk of the hemp plant into two distinct products: Fiber and Hurd. At capacity, Heartland will process over 480,000 pounds of hemp stalk every day which will remove more than 750,000 pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere on a daily basis.

The Fiber

Fibers are long, strong, and skinny strands wrapped around the core of the hemp plant. Fibers account for approximately 40% of the total plant by weight.

The Hurd

Hurds are the inner woody core of the hemp plant, consisting of over 70% cellulose. Hurd accounts for approximately 55% of the total plant by weight.

Heartland Industries processes the hemp plant to make materials that are stronger, lighter, and less expensive than competing products.

Manufacturers That Utilize Plastics, Pulped Paper, and Building Materials Can Leverage Hemp As A High-Value Additive To Existing Products.
