Canada’s Hempalta Pursues Innovation in Products Made with Hemp Hurd
By Elizabeth Lunt
Health Canada, in charge of gathering hemp cultivation figures, reports that over 22,000 hectares of hemp were grown in 2020, the latest year for which numbers are available. Alberta leads the way with over 8,000 hectares. Most of this production has been dedicated to hemp protein and hemp hearts, but the partners at Hempalta, in southern Alberta, see a different opportunity developing products made from the hemp stock.
One reason for focusing on hemp hurd, says the company, is that it faces fewer regulatory headwinds in Canada, as hurd and fiber do not carry the onerous requirements that THC and CBD products do. As such, Hempalta is innovating a product line for the home with offerings that solve problems that hemp can address better than other materials, such as a cat litter, a soil amendment, a produce-prolonging food preservation pad, animal bedding, and an ultra-absorbent formulation to assist in the removal of spills. On the commercial side, Hempalta offers bast and hurd in bulk.
