The growing of a kenaf or other nonwood fiber crop is probably the simplest
part of any project. Growing kenaf or other nonwood fiber crops the right
way is determined by the end product definition and the process steps required
to produce the product. Since there are many products that can be produced
from kenaf, we place end product definition at the front of the evaluation
- What is the desired end product?
- What manufacturing steps are needed to produce that product?
- Who is going to buy the end product?
Vision Fiber has witnessed multiple projects that lack a clear understanding
of the three questions listed above. We can assist you by making
suggestions that will lead to economically viable answers to the above
- Defining the End Products
- Kenaf and other nonwood fibers can be used to make a wide variety of
final products, from pulp and paper, to composites. Particle board,
plastic fillers, bioremediation aids, automobile components, and biofuels
are just some of the possibilities.
- Manufacturing Steps
- End product specifications can be defined so that the appropriate
manufacturing equipment can be specified. Vision Fiber is familiar
with various mechanical and chemical processes that are cost effective,
environmentally sound, and reliable.
- Market Studies
- Vision Fiber can provide assistance or perform market studies based upon
the end products and geographical location of your project.
