Green Energy: The Hemp Revolution – Part 3
August 10, 2020, 1PM EST
As part of our ongoing mission to inform and educate the Hemp Bio-sustainability Community, the National Hemp Association is proud to present our newest entry in our ongoing webinar series; Green Energy: The Hemp Revolution – Part 3.
Our next presentation will focus on the types of graphene and cellulose based meta-materials that can currently be produced on an industrial scale from hemp. We will explain the processes that go into the production of industrial graphene and carbon materials. We will explain the process of how to create MFC or micro fibrillated-cellulose as well as it’s properties and advantages in industrial applications. We will also delve into the exciting world of creating aerogel and the many applications and unique properties of this space-age material.
As always our focus will be on a combined strategic green-energy implementation with a focus on reducing the current cost of producing meta-materials. Our process at HPLC uses hemp to create the opportunity for these green efficiencies to be implemented. Come learn why hemp is going to be the building block of the 21st century

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. ~Nelson Mandela
Much work still needs to be done with the general public, farmers and our elected officials about the nutritional, industrial, environmental and medicinal benefits of hemp. As laws change, research is conducted and commercialization begins, sharing information will be vital to ensure the hemp industry thrives. NHA is committed to advancing this awareness and knowledge.
NHA’s main priority is the passage of comprehensive hemp legislation on a federal level. We also are here to help individual states with their hemp legislation. Stay tuned for important updates of how you can help pass HR3550, The 2017 Industrial Hemp Act!
Hemp has the potential to bring prosperity to many segments of our society. Not only will it be a new cash and rotational crop for farmers, the possibilities for manufacturing are virtuously endless. Not only can hemp make thousands of products, hemp can be used to makes thousands of products, better, stronger and more sustainable. Now is the time to start think about how hemp can be incorporated into your business plan. If you have an existing hemp business, an NHA business level membership is a great way to not only support our efforts but to promote your business tp thousands of hemp enthusiasts!
HEMP IS NOT MARIJUANA
One of the biggest misconceptions is believing that industrial hemp is the same thing as marijuana.
The two plants are the same species, but are more like first cousins and NOT identical twins.
“Hemp Can Save The Planet!”
Hemp is the most versatile plant on earth.
It can be used for food, medicine, biofuel, compostable plastics, building materials and more.
It is time for the full legalization of industrial hemp at the federal level.
