Bales at Bruderheim Bruderheim.JPG

Our Process

Canadian Rockies Hemp Corp. is the largest
hemp processor in Canada.

Based in Alberta, Canada, CRHC has millions of acres of farmland within its growing area.

Working directly with local Alberta farmers, CRHC provides specific high-quality

hemp feedstockto the Bruderheim Facility.

The Bruderheim Processing Facility is capable of:

  • processing up to 50,000 acres of hemp per year,

  • producing 50,000 tonnes of fiber, and

  • 110,000 tonnes of hurd.

 

Our processed materials are then sold to customers around the world...

"Providing Bio-Materials for a Sustainable Future"

STEP 1: Hemp Cultivation

CRHC contracts Alberta farmers to grow single purpose hemp for fiber.

 

Seed, Spray and Walk Away

 

Farmers are responsible for seeding and spraying.

 

CRHC completes all harvest activities:

  • Cutting,

  • Tedding,

  • Raking,

  • Baling, and

  • Hauling.

CRHC delivers hemp bales to the Bruderheim Processing Facility.

STEP 2: Primary Processing

CRHC's Bruderheim Processing Facility uses multiple global decortication technologies to produce a wide range of hemp fibers.

 

Hemp feedstock is processed (via decortication) at CRHC’s Bruderheim Processing Facility into three main products:

  • Fiber,

  • Hurd, and

  • Screenings.

 

These products are sold to commercial and industrial customers in North America and across the globe for further manufacturing in industries such as textiles, building materials, non-wovens, technical fibers (composites), animal bedding, spill absorption, biofuel and much more.

Decortication: the process of separating hemp stalks into three main products: hurd, fiber and screenings/dust.  

STEP 3: Value Added Processing

As primary processing at the Processing Facility scales up, CRHC will be adding value-add processing.

CRHC will also be constructing a 40,000 – 60,000 sq.ft Hemp Upgrading Facility adjacent to the Decortication Facility to value-add process decorticated fiber and hurd for global markets.

 

This phase will produce hemp pellets (biofuel), tree-less pallets, spill absorption for the Oil and Gas Industry, high quality specification hurd for the construction/building industry (hempcrete) and degummed/cottonized fiber for textile and non woven industries. 

 Degumming/Cottonization: the removal of natural glues and lignin from hemp fiber, making it more suitable for use in      non-woven and textile applications.  

STEP 4: Global Supply of Material

As contracted acres and demand increases, CRHC will maximize the Decortication Facility by increasing decortication capacity, adding value-add processing, completing the Bruderheim Facility as CRHC’s “model” for future production facilities to be built across the Prairies.
