CRAILAR technology transforms hemp into organic fibers

Oct '08
Naturally Advanced Technologies Inc., a pioneer in commercializing the use of bast fibers including industrial hemp for use in casual apparel, performance yarns, industrial filters and absorbent pulp and paper products, is conducting bulk commercialization trials with a leading U.S. apparel brand, and one of North America's largest pulp and paper producers.

The results of these tests are expected to determine the next steps to bring its CRAILAR® Organic Fiber and Advanced Materials technology to market and are expected to be announced by the end of November.

“These trials are a significant milestone in our long-term strategy to commercialize the patented CRAILAR Technology Platform, which we developed in partnership with the National Research Council of Canada and the Alberta Research Council.

We are very excited to reach the final stages of the trials and look forward to discussing the results and our preliminary plans to apply this technology on a large commercial scale,” said Ken Barker, CEO of Naturally Advanced Technologies.

CRAILAR technology capitalizes on the superior natural properties of industrial hemp, such as greater tensile strength, thermo regulation properties, anti-microbial, and abrasion resistance.

In addition, industrial hemp does not need pesticides and herbicides, thrives in cool climates, is drought tolerant, benefits soil and helps to eliminate greenhouse gases.

NAT transforms hemp into organic fibers that are an effective alternative to organic cotton for use in comfort apparel and into advanced materials for use in performance apparel, advanced composites, bio polymers, industrial filters and absorbent pulp and paper products.

NAT's cost-effective, environmentally advantageous solutions are designed to meet the rapidly growing demand for organic fibers and advanced materials as consumers and corporations reduce their environmental footprint and the cost of petroleum-based synthetics continues to rise.
