HempTrain™ Advanced Hemp Processing Plant

The HempTrain™ Advanced Processing Plant is a complete, whole plant hemp processing solution! After extensive research, development, design, and engineering, Canadian Greenfield Technologies Corp. have produced the most state-of-the-art, decortication and separation technology available; capable of separating baled hemp, fresh/green or dry, into high-value products!


  • Creates higher-value products than conventional decorticators
  • Capable of processing hemp whole or fractional, fresh/green or dry, from square or round bales
  • Separates fresh/green hemp feedstock into an extraction-ready high-CBD fraction
  • Produces long, course, intact structural bast fiber
  • Produces clean, size-specified hurd fiber, with additive mixing capabilities
  • Low-dust Environment

Conventional decorticators (hammer mills, scutchers, etc.) use technology that is, in some cases, over a century old. These mechanisms were designed for destruction of their feedstock, damaging the hemp and causing attrition to both bast and hurd fibers. This action leads to a loss in fiber integrity, and bast fiber cannot therefore be used effectively in contemporary reinforcement applications. This action also reduces the size of all feedstock components, creating a mixture that cannot be then separated into its constituents.

The HempTrain™ Advanced Hemp Processing Plant employs a unique and proprietary decortication mechanism, that can be used in both dry and fresh/green processing!

When processing fresh/green feedstock, HempTrain™ separates out a high-CBD fraction, consisting of the bud leaves, rich in CBD, and excluding sugar leaves and anything longer. This yields a high-efficiency extraction-ready fraction, which is not attainable by any other method. Read our whitepaper to learn more.

When processing dry feedstock, HempTrain™, produces long, intact structural bast fiber, clean, size-specified hurd, seeds, and a green microfiber stream that is a concentrate of all leaf and flower material; rich in cannabinoids, terpenes, and other bio-nutrients.

HempTrain™ Advanced Processing Plant Turnkey Package

The HempTrain™ Advanced Processing Plant is supplied as a turnkey package, available to both the USA & Canadian markets.


  • NFPA-Compliant Explosion-Mitigating Dust Collector
  • Full PLC control with touchscreen for optimization & ease of operation
  • Dry Additive Mixer System for High-Value Hurd Stream
  • Warranty
  • Shipping, Installation, Commissioning, & Training

Included in the HempTrain™ Advanced Processing Plant turnkey package, the CGT Bale Opener has been engineered to open hemp bales, square or round, fresh/green or dry.

Unlike conventional bale openers, the CGT bale opener is designed to withstand the unique structural properties of long, high-tensile strength hemp fiber without damage to the fiber; avoiding wrapping and clumping. In addition, it has been engineered to minimize the destruction and loss of bio-nutrients (i.e. cannabinoids, terpenes, etc.).

Designed for compatibility with the HempTrain™ Advanced Processing Plant, the CGT Bale Opener can process hemp biomass, regardless of it is whole plants, tops, strippings, or straw.
