The Problem–The U.S. Fiber Market is in the First-Mover Stage; the lack of large-scale processing solutions is the bottleneck
Current U.S. decortication options include both stationary and mobile equipment, but they have low capacity and require additional processing solutions in order meet end-users’ specifications.
The Solution is DON’s Decortication Equipment Choice:
CRETES has developed, designed and built complete processing lines for hemp fiber for decades; these lines are successfully operating on four continents, including the largest processor in France, LA CHANVRIÈRE, Europe’s major player for the past forty years.
Capacity is up to 10-tons per hour which requires 10,000 acres of production
Processes for the widest range of specifications and applications, including textiles, unlike smaller, cheaper decortication equipment lines
Flexible input options can be either round or square bales, bulk or bundles so farmers can use existing equipment
Fibers with less than 3% of shives (pressed in bales)
Cleaned hurd (pressed in bags or in bulk)
Short fibers (pressed in bales)
Dust (pressed in pellets or briquettes or unprocessed in bulk)
