Ellison continued, "We look at this activity though, not only from the projects economic feasibility but also take pride in being part of an organization that plans to invest in the formulation, patenting and distribution of new products that actually have been recently proven to benefit human health. It's not just the Hempcrete and Fiber for us, it's also about promoting better health worldwide."
