Officials at Hemp Inc., announced they are ready to release its first product in the marketplace, an environmentally friendly super absorbent biodegradable material called SpillSuck™. The product is made from the core of kenaf and hemp plants, and is one of the world’s most absorbent natural materials used primarily for oil, chemical and other liquid spills. Expectations are that SpillSuck™ will be especially helpful in oil spill cleanups. Kenaf is a plant related to cotton, hibiscus and okra with its origin in Africa.
The company’s first 25,000 pounds of SpillSuck™ are in the final stages of packaging, after which the product will be ready for market.
Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc said:
In the announcement they said twenty-five thousand pounds of SpillSuck™ are currently being processed for delivery to the market in the next few weeks. Further, they expect to have another 100,000 pounds of material ready and 2 – 3 weeks after that. Once in full production, the target goal is to process and ship one to three million pounds of SpillSuck™ per month, according to the announcement.
