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 straw, round or square, fresh/green or dry, into high-value products!

What is the HempTrain™ Advanced Processing Plant?

How Does HempTrain™ Operate? - Operation Demonstration

*Certain types of feedstock with a higher content of bast fiber (>15% w/w) and longer bast fiber in length (>3ft), as well as certain bale configurations may significantly affect the throughput capacity. Feed rate and manner of loading may change significantly depending on feedstock. For more information, please contact us.

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 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 terpenes and other bio-nutrients. Read our whitepaper to learn more.

When processing fresh/green feedstock, HempTrain™ separates out a Extraction-Ready Fraction (ERF), consisting of the bud leaves, rich in nutrients, 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.

Included in the HempTrain™ Advanced Processing Plant turnkey package, the Hemp Bale Processor has been engineered to open baled hemp straw, square or round, fresh/green or dry.

Unlike conventional bale openers, the Hemp Bale Processor 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.

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

Licensing For Manufacturing & Distribution

We are now offering Technology & Business Licenses, allowing the License Holder to manufacture and distribute HempTrain™ technology & equipment within territories.

The License is exclusive for life and irrevocable for the delineated Territory and will include the supply by CGT the first HempTrain™ installation, full technology transfer (drawings, specifications, technical know-how), on-going technical support by CGT engineers in Canada, as well as full access to on-going technological upgrades by CGT. The License will entitle the Licensee to manufacture, distribute and/or operate HempTrain™ exclusively and unconditionally and without limitations within Territory.

The cost of a License in North America, for a Territory with a population up to 20,000,000 (20 million) is a one-time, up-front USD$3.75M (including the cost of the first turn-key HempTrain™ facility) . Each additional license for ANY territory world-wide will cost a one-time, up-front USD$1.75 M (HempTrain™ facility not included), if the additional territory is still “open” and the additional license is purchased within 2 years of purchasing the first, main License. There will be no royalty or alike whatsoever and no deferred payments. Licenses for territories outside of North America will be priced on the basis of their merits. Contact us for more information.
