First Large-Scale Hemp Processing Plant In Colorado



A Fort Lupton plant is starting to test and process Colorado’s hemp harvest, turning it into pulp that can be used to make paper, sugar — even biofuels.

Ed Lehrbuger, the company’s president and CEO, gave 7NEWS Reporter Jaclyn Allen a tour of his pilot plant, where scientists are using new technology to quickly turn hemp stalks into raw materials, such as pulp that could be used to make paper or sugar to make biofuels — a sustainable alternative to oil.

“Some of our clients are specifically trying to get away from oil-based products that they sell globally to bio-based products,” said Lehrbuger.
