Industrial hemp stretching the boundaries of plastic

Industrial hemp

 

This week the potential for developing a commercial industrial hemp growing industry in Tasmania has been detailed at a state parliamentary inquiry.

An unusual case was put by a small northern Tasmanian recycled plastics manufacturer that wants to use hemp in its products.

Envorinex is a speciality plastics manufacturer with a strong research and product innovation profile.

The international director from the company Michael Turner says industrial hemp can help provide new markets for the plastic products.
