February 1st, 2009 / By: / Industry News

Dr. Wing Sung, principal research officer of the National Research Council of Canada, discusses his new enzyme-based process to clean and extract fiber from hemp, flax and other bast fibers in a new three-minute video at www.naturallyadvanced.com/s/Photo_Gallery.asp. Naturally Advanced Technologies Inc., Vancouver, Canada, is developing ways to produce renewable and sustainable biomass from hemp, and the CRAILAR® process developed by Sung is a cost-effective way of obtaining bast fibers for textile, industrial, energy, medical and composite material applications. The company’s HTnaturals apparel division also offers environmentally friendly, sustainable fabrics for consumer clothing applications.
