element6 Dynamics is at the forefront of an industrial paradigm shift away from extractive business practices to collaborative efforts with stakeholders such as the environment, current supply chains, businesses, and farmers. We are a business of “and” rather than “or.”
element6 Dynamics uses the industrial hemp plant’s ability as a regenerative and renewable crop which biomediates soil by locking carbon, heavy metals and pesticides into its plant fibers and soil, and harnessing the power and strength of the plant to fit within current businesses focused on pulp used in paper and packaging.
We work directly to solve supply chain challenges for Companies focused on optimizing business by leveraging regenerative and renewable energy sources for their existing product portfolios.
Industrial hemp grows rapidly in a wide range of conditions, sequestering large amounts of carbon (approximately 5 tons of CO2/acre/year, more than most forest ecosystems) while enhancing soil health. Industrial hemp is rich in cellulose and other materials that make it an ideal and sustainable source of industrial fibers, plant based proteins among other co-products derived beyond the stalk.
Hemp fibers are naturally stronger and more recyclable than tree fibers, and are also whiter, requiring less bleaching in production. From seed to harvest, hemp grows in 120 days with the potential of a multi-harvest year, depending on climate.
“You need imagination in order to imagine a future that doesn’t exist.” — Azar Nafisi
In order to imagine the world of tomorrow, which is more in balance, healthier and thriving, we must reimagine industries today.
Current pulping facilities, many under distress, with modest production adjustments allow for the large-scale adoption of sustainable hemp pulp to displace destructive materials and processes in common use today. These industries are primed for circular economies to be birthed, for food deserts to be reduced with nutrient dense soil and food and for localized economies in support of healthier humans and communities.
element6 Dynamics is currently engaged in a range of R&D partnerships with leading universities as well as strategic development and supplier discussions with major corporations in the paper, and packaging to bring imagination to regions long forgotten.
element6 Dynamics’ impact is multi-dimensional and goes well beyond addressing deforestation, non-renewable resources exploitation and our planet’s serious carbon imbalance. How we do it is as important as what we do. Our nature- based solutions create significant economic opportunities for farmers nationally, underserved communities and regionalized lands forgotten from extractive practices.
Similarly, our planned networks of processing facilities, Regenerative Refineries™ will create circular economies in communities around the country. Cultivating industrial hemp on land previously compromised by industry delivers still more impact, as the practice can remorse toxins and provide a range of other restorative benefits. The dynamics of what we do and how we do it are far-reaching and their impact is ever-growing and evolving.
