Saskatoon — With the addition of this new processing line, Sask Polytech can now process biomass from hemp and flax crops, including the long (bast) fibres from the outer bark, and the woody inner tissue (known as hurd or shive) to produce clean fibres for various applications.

Funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation and Innovation Saskatchewan has helped Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Innovative Manufacturing Centre install a state-of-the-art agricultural biomass processing line.

This new equipment will enhance the school’s ability to support innovative manufacturing projects and provide students with valuable applied research opportunities.
