Purdue industrial hemp pilot project fires up

In addition to Purdue’s pilot projects, a capstone class is being offered at the Richard G. Lugar Center for Renewable Energy at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
“Agricultural and Industrial Business Ecosystem around Hemp” has been approved for spring 2015.
The purpose of the class is to explore, develop and recommend a comprehensive business ecosystem supportive of industrial hemp for use as a source of electricity, biofuels and value-added byproducts from the conversion process. 

“The project scope encompasses seed development, agriculture, pre-processing, transport, manufacturing and distribution,” Campbell said.
