The Panda Texas Plains Hemp Gins are anticipated to be the largest, most technologically advanced, first-of-its-kind decorticators ever used to separate the fiber and cellulose from the stalk. Smaller versions of this proven decortication technology have been used for decades in Asia and Europe. To ensure the highest quality fiber, Panda Biotech will only process hemp stalks that are harvested prior to the maturation of the seed and flower, which are the parts of the plant used in CBD products.
More than 130,000 tons of Texas-grown industrial hemp per year are expected to be processed into high-quality, textile grade fiber & premium cellulose. Panda Biotech’s agronomists will supervise the planting and harvesting of the seed to ensure the most consistent, high quality feedstock.
