In this Podcast Hemp.com’s Josh Davis interviews Nathan Armstrong, President of Motive Industries Inc. about their latest car, the Kestrel, which feature a Hemp Bio-Composite Body.

Nathan Armstrong - President of Motive Industries Inc.

Out of the total Bio-Mass on Earth that is available, only 3.5% is actually used. And from that 3.5%, 70% is gone to make food and 2.5% is used to make plastics and chemicals.  In terms of wealth about $400 Billion is generated out of the food side and about $400 Billion generated out of the plastics and chemicals side. So the potential for bio-materials in the market place is absolutely enormous. – Nathan Armstrong interviewed by Josh Davis for hemp.com.
