What is Phytofinery®?

Phytofinery® combines several disruptive technologies in order to make Biomaterial processing more efficient, cost effective and increase yield as well as value output at the same time.

Over the past two years, in collaboration with our partners, Hanf Farm, we’ve been dedicated to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of biomass processing. We introduce our game-changing advancement: Phytofinery®.

Phytofinery® represents not only a significant breakthrough but also a resolute pledge to a future characterised by sustainability and enhanced efficiency. This groundbreaking process is poised to redefine our approach to utilising biomass, with far-reaching advantages spanning the global landscape.

We are committed to harnessing the inherent potential of this technology, which offers boundless opportunities for a more sustainable and promising tomorrow.

Processing

  • 1

    PRIMARY MICRO DECORTICATION

    • A wet process which does not require retting or drying.

    We already have an exclusive sales and distribution agreement with a partner who has patent protection

  • 2

    HYDRO THERMAL EXTRACTION

    • Bastfibre Biomass Processing for increased yield, quality and secondary utilisation of side streams

    New technology developed exclusively for FIBAMAX®

  • 3

    SECONDARY MICRO DECORTICATION

    • Secondary processing streams into high- value semi-finished and end-use products

Manufacturing Potential

Hemp Uses
01

High Value Carbon Negative Products

The global industrial plant biomass market is expected to grow by 25% by 2028.

02

Bio Molecules

We can produce bio molecules such as cellulose, Lignin, Pectin, and HMF bio-based molecules.

03

Food Proteins

Hulled Hemp seeds have a 30% protein content and contain essential fatty acids, Gamma Linolenic acid and vitamin E.

04

Building

Hemp is carbon-negative, sequestering 110kg of CO2 per cubic metre.

05

Animal Care and Wellbeing

Hemp can be used as a clean bedding, free from dust, mould, and spores. Super absorbent (4 times higher than straw) and reducing the ammonia concentration in the stable air. All of which is 100% natural and fully compostable.

06

Paper, Moulded Packaging and Panels

Hemp grows in 120 days in comparison to 20 years for a tree. In addition, hemp has a higher cellulose value than wood.

The global paper industry is worth over €360 billion.

07

Bio-Plastics

The petrochemical plastics sector is valued at over €1 trillion annually. Hemp is already becoming a viable and sustainable alternative filler component in some biocomposites and bioplastics replacing virgin PLA.

Not only is it hemp non-toxic to humans and animals, bioplastics are commercially compostable.

08

Textiles

The cotton and synthetics market is worth nearly €1 trillion. However, cotton uses 12-15,000 litres of water per 1kg of fibre. Hemp uses 1-1,500 litres of water per 1kg of fibre, making it a far more sustainable fabric alternative.

Hemp is grown without synthetic chemicals and only natural fertiliser is needed in conjunction with regenerative agriculture principles.

09

Automotive

The annual automotive market is worth over €2.5 trillion with over 78 million vehicles produced in 2020.

Natural fibres are used by many of the leading car manufacturers with an annual composites market of around €2.5 billion.
