WHAT WE DO
BastCore buys hemp stalks and sells fiber products, bridging the gap between farmers growing hemp and industries demanding cost competitive sustainably produced raw materials.
WHO WE ARE
Founder and President, John Lupien, is a recognized industry expert with over 15 years of experience in the business of hemp processing and product development. BastCore’s goal is to create a new class of green commodities utilizing hemp biofibers.
MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR GROWTH POTENTIAL
BastCore processes hemp, a low input, high-yielding crop into a diversity of sustainable bio-based products. Markets for these products represent tremendous growth opportunity for American farmers, rural economies, and domestic manufacturers, while the cultivation and use of hemp can help reduce environmental impact.
There is a limited processing infrastructure in North America
and available technologies are costly and ineffective.
Bastcore's technology is more efficient than any competitive product in the market.
Our proprietary innovation is called a decorticator. This specialized machine separates the
outer bark of bast fiber from the inner core wood that naturally occurs in hemp stalks.
Separation is accomplished in a single high throughput pass rather than multiple stages,
while minimizing fiber damage.
