Dear EIHA members,
today I got the following request:
I have read a report from the EIHA conference of 2007 and am interested in the pellets and composite plastics that Michael Carus speaks of.
We are a research company who submitted a report to our state Government last year to have the legislation changed to grow Industrial Hemp and have just been notified that due to this submission the changes will occur and we will be leading the steering committee to build the Industry Standards for our state.
Part of our research is demand of oil seed and fibres crops and crops for renewable energy and crops with a point of difference hence my interest in Industrial Hemp for the past 10 years.
We have formulated a joint venture project with Futuris Automotive here in Australia who make car infill panels for General Motors and Ford Australia.
We are wanting to move forward on this project and need to access some samples of the pellets being created across the world using natural fibres e.g. hemp and composite plastics like what you mention in the report and on your web site. We are interested in all and any type of business venture to access your pellets and technology and would be willing to email, have teleconferences and met in person when synergies can occur.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Kind Regards
David Ward
