    Information @ a Glance         

 General
  • Hemp is one of the highest yielding and least intensive crops to cultivate.  It is highly self compatible so that there is no need for crop rotation, but is also a sound crop rotation.  It oppresses weeds well and is so fast growing that it does not require any kind of herbicide treatment. Hemp is also used in breeding nurseries for preventing out crossing of other crops because of its tall, fast growing stature, thus having good properties as an isolation crop.

  • Hemp is cut when the male plants are in full flower and shedding pollen. The subsequent retting and scutching processes are similar to those for linseed and flax. Fibre quality is reported as high: 4-20% lignin in comparison with tree wood fibres at over 30% lignin. Lignin content is significant because it is positively correlated with paper yellowing; a clearly undesirable characteristic for paper with long anticipated life.

Process

  • “Biocomposites” of non woven hemp matting and polypropylene or epoxy are pressed into parts
    such as door panels and luggage racks, replacing heavier and less safe fiberglass composites.
  • The low impact of the farming and processing of hemp stalks and the high strength, length and yield of the bast fibers make hemp, a traditional source of high-strength specialty paper.

Market

  • A share of 70 - 80% of the hemp fiber market, this traditional application still represents the by far most important product line. In absolute terms, demand has been largely constant, except for yearly fluctuation. Its relative share has decreased noticeably .

  • Significant technical progress and/or the development of new fields of application, little economic growth of this sector is to be expected. Only a small portion of hemp fibres used for pulping is traded in the open market, the majority enters process chains, integrated from raw material to end product. France continues to be the most important country for the use of hemp fibres in the specialty pulp sector.
