What Do We Do ?
PureHemp has secured global technology licensing rights to convert industrial hemp into hemp-based products. PureVision Technology, Inc. (“PureVision”) based in Ft. Lupton, Colorado, has developed and patented the continuous countercurrent reactor (CCR) technology that rapidly converts non-food biomass such as corn stover, wheat straw, grasses, wood and hemp stalks into biobased products. PureHemp has demonstrated the unique capabilities of the CCR technology that deconstructs hemp into its fundamental components that then become intermediate materials including:
Pulp, which is one of the products exiting the CCR and is made primarily from the cellulose fraction (about 40%) of the hemp stalks. Pulp is used to produce a wide variety of products including paper products, sugars, alpha cellulose, dissolving pulps, composites and building products.
Lignin, which makes up about 20% of hemp stalks, is the “glue” that protects the cellulose and hemicellulose fibers. PureHemp is able to fractionate lignin from hemp stalks, which can then be used as a raw material to make many products, including chemicals and plastics.
Sugars from the cellulose and hemicellulose fractions of hemp, primarily glucose and cellulose, can be used to produce sweeteners, beverages, chemicals and plastic.
Flowers, which are gently converted into cannabinoid-rich and full spectrum oils using PureHemp’s unique extraction process. These cannabidiol- or CBD-rich cannabinoids are now being enjoyed by a growing number of consumers, and commonly used by health and wellness practitioners.
PureHemp is size-reducing whole hemp stalks and decorticating the bast fiber from the inner hurd or wood. The bast fiber is being used to manufacture pulp and the hurd is being milled into the following six varieties of raw and size-reduced hemp hurd
