Innovative Technology & Materials Make Innovative Products
We are thrilled to announce that CGT is now commercially supplying hemp hurd for MUSHROOM packaging®, a registered trademark of Ecovative Design. This innovative packing solution is water-resistant, thermally insulating, composts in just 45 days and is made with only 2 ingredients; mycelium and hemp hurd.
Traditional Materials Produced in a Revolutionary Way
Hemp hurd is the light, woody core of the hemp stalk. It’s dust-free and highly absorbent. The hurd that CGT produces is specially processed, using our own state-of-the-art HempTrain™ Advanced Processing Plant. The key to winning this contract, is the ability of HempTrain™ technology to produce specification-sized, uniform, flowable, clean hurd, with proven, ensured supply. Product of this type is otherwise practically unavailable from conventional sources.
Zion Market Research reports that the global mushroom packaging market is expected to reach USD $118 million by 2025. MUSHROOM Packaging® & products are a rapidly growing industry, producing sustainable and biodegradable products that are being licensed and adopted by major brands such as IKEA, Stella McCartney, Dell, Adidas, Lululemon, and Hermes.
This is yet another example of the unique ability of HempTrain™ Technology in commanding high-value, large markets for hemp products.
