Pelletizing Hemp?

My name is Dan Scheele, and I am a hemp farmer in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada. I am researching the possibility of pelletizing hemp fiber and I would very much appreciate information about any research on pelletizing industrial hemp.

  3. Mr. Scheele, I’ve just become interested in industrial hemp, and I’m not an authority on pellet fuels either. I am, however, curious about whether the pellet making process might be modified by simply cutting the narrow stalks into 1/2-inch bits. In other words, let the stalk become the pellet. I don’t know whether standard pellet stove augers could accommodate that size. You might want to speak with a stove dealer. There may also be issues concerning dryness and density. Perhaps you would be kind enough to forward any useful information you find out. Good luck, Todd Dreyer, dreyerts@frontiernet.net
