Canadian Greenfield Technologies Corp. (CGT), is a technology & manufacturing company specializing in hemp processing technologies and product development. A part of an international-award winning industry group in business since 1987, we are an industry leader with unparalleled expertise in hemp processing and the only supplier of complete whole plant hemp processing facilities in North America.

CGT's operations are structured into two divisions: HempTrain™ Division involved in manufacture of HempTrain™ for open market, and a Hemp Products Division involved in manufacture of hemp products including HempAlta™ branded products and NForce-Fiber™ using company’s own HempTrain™ facilities.

Revolutionary Hemp Processing Technologies

Our advanced hemp processing technology, the HempTrain™ Advanced Processing Plant, is the only hemp processing technology capable of separating whole-plant hemp feedstock into high-value products. When dry feedstock is processed, hemp is separated into long, strong bast fiber, clean, size-specified hurd, and a nutrient rich green microfiber. Alternately, when fresh/green hemp is processed, HempTrain™ will separate and concentrate a extraction-ready fraction for use as an extraction feedstock.

Using our HempTrain™ technology, we manufacture our premium products for a wide-range of industries including concrete reinforcement, pet care, garden care, food preservation, and skin care. Our premium products and innovative technologies are aimed at environmental sustainability, green manufacturing, energy efficiency and carbon emission reduction.
