CIHC is making plastic lighter, stronger,
lower cost and 100% eco-friendly using
patented automation technology.
Our patent-pending technology enables the production of consistent, to spec outputs.
The patent specifies the implementation of artificial intelligence and spectroscopy to predict the characteristics of fibres within bales of stalk before processing and quantifiably define the qualities of fibres after processing.
SMART STALK SYSTEM: DIGITAL BUSINESS PLATFORM TO MAXIMIZE PROFITS
CIHC has engineered industry 4.0 software specifically for natural fibre processing and secondary production.
It integrates customer and supplier relationship management with production planning, monitoring and control to maximize efficiency of our operations.
And enables trade secret applications of ML, IOT, robotics, virtual reality, and analytics.
Additional benefits include: reduced lead times and lower prices, reduced downtime, easier customization, frictionless communication, more accurate forecasting and seamless data management.
Our Impact on the World
Immediate broad scaling of our technologies and products will significantly increase the replacement of talc, glass fibre, and oil/gas derived manufacturing material with carbon sequestering plant materials and thereby help to preserve the natural world and reduce carbon emissions.
End-users will be able to simultaneously increase their profits, and the desirability of their products.
A new cash crop for farmers in North America, and increased profits for European and Asian farmers.
Consumers globally will benefit from the availability of higher performance, lower cost, more sustainable products.
