The market appetite for sustainable business processes and materials has never been so high; a lack of economies of scale has slowed the development of this industry. Seclink is able to grow, and process hemp on an unprecedented scale. Today, consumers strongly demonstrate support for ethical companies that create environmentally considered and sustainable development projects. Sustainability trends as a well evidenced and impactful nexus for attracting permanent residents and tourism as well. For many years hemp was outlawed because the presence of THC contravened the dangerous drugs act in many countries. This myth was perpetuated and supported with huge sums from key industries such as plastics, paper and fossil fuels. The emergence of a low input, high yielding crop with the ability to provide a range of high quality materials and fuel, could not be more timely. Our ability to source this material, and convert into vast quantities of raw materials, and finished products, across all industry sectors, is what will drive this market into reality. The incorporation of hemp will enable society to establish a more harmonious balance with the planet. Hemp is the best carbon trap per acre in the green plant family. It also acts as a remediator of low nutrient soil, requires zero fertilizers or pesticides to grow abundantly and requires far less water than other crops. In essence, growing hemp is one of our most direct routes to improved sustainability.
Hemp is considered one of the world’s most nutritious plants. The seeds are a powerful superfood and contain all of the nine essential amino acids, making them an ideal, complete source of natural, unrefined protein.. The essential fatty acids (both Omega-3s and Omega-6s) are abundant in hemp seeds. Though hemp comes from a variety of Cannabis, the plant contains extremely low levels of THC. It is not possible to use industrial hemp as a drug.
Hemp seed oil is used as a remedy for a range of conditions. Some studies show that its nutrients and minerals can contribute to better skin and heart health as well as reduced inflammation.
In 1916, the U.S Government predicted that by the 1940’s all paper would come from hemp and that no more trees would need to be cut down.
Government studies report that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees, Hemp production is much more time and resource efficient. Plans were in the works to implement such programs. (U.S. Department of Agriculture)
Hempcrete is a bio-composite material made from a mixture of hemp hurds (the woody inner core of the hemp plant), lime, and water. It is used as a lightweight and insulating construction material for walls, floors, and roofs.
Living in a sustainable building is immaterial, if the lives of the inhabitants do not undergo radical change. SecLink can further support green construction by enabling citizens and visitors to maintain this environmental status with the manufacture of multiple everyday goods from biodegradable, hemp based plastics. These can be made on site, and delivered to local stores, supermarkets and other businesses to ease delivery and implementation.
Our plastics are cost effective, scalable and possess minimal shrinkage qualities or risk of abrasion. Our team will work with you to develop complex polymer mixtures for the toughest manufacturing tasks facing your industry. We are able to supply raw hemp filled polymers (hemp propylene, hemp ABS, hemp ethylene and hemp PLA) or finished materials (packaging, toys, parts, durables and plenty of other plastics).
Seclink believes that no matter how green the new infrastructure appears to be, the way in which people arrive, leave and move around the city is the absolute key to setting new standards in this revolutionary approach to liveability. While the majority of the world’s hemp is currently being grown by private companies for the production of CBD and other cannabinoids with medicinal benefits, Seclink promotes the cultivation of hemp to create transport fuel as well as heat and power for communities.
Biomass can be converted into several secondary energy carriers (electricity, gaseous liquid and solid fuels or heat). The processes employed include direct combustion, hydrolysis, fermentation, gasification and pyrolysis.
Biofuel describes fuels that have been extracted from living matter such as plants and crops. They can be grown anywhere, are not a finite resource and notably have lower carbon emissions. Of these biofuels, the most commonly extracted and used are Bioethanol and Biodiesel. Biofuel is fuel produced directly from hemp biomass and is the only renewable alternative for liquid transportation fuel.
Our hemp fueled power plants do not deplete muchneeded food or water supplies as is often the case with other biomass feedstocks where the crop is competing for land with food crops. Hemp can be grown anywhere (even on derelict and polluted land) and while the stalk of the plant can be utilised for a myriad of other uses.
Reduced Water 10 times less water required to cultivate, and process Hemp textiles compared to Cotton. Hemp naturally increases the attenuation capacity of the fields, through It’s root density.
Hemp does not require any fertilizers , pesticides or additives. Reducing ground water contamination and CO2 emissions
Hemp will bio absorb 25 times the CO2 of the same sized forest. 1 Hectare of Hemp will absorb 15 Tons of CO2 during its growth.
