After President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan recently gave messages of determination in industrial hemp production, public establishments, the business world and entrepreneurs rolled up their sleeves to figure on the business.
As the awareness of the commercial dimensions of hemp, which might generate 50,000 merchandise of seeds, fibers, root and leaves, has magnified, an organization that has already succeeded in manufacturing the ultimate product from hemp composites has emerged in Turkey.

TechnoArge, a Turkish analysis company supported by 2 entrepreneurs, has been functioning on "hemp composites" within the composite business that has directly influenced dozens of industries aerospace automotive and construction, for 3 years.
Headquartered in Avcılar, Istanbul, the corporate manufactures bullet-proof armour, X-ray devices and hand disinfectants with composites (bringing completely different materials along to point out a replacement feature) made up of hemp.
Developing innovative merchandise from hemp, TechnoArge additionally created national and international patent applications for hemp composites.
TechnoArge chief Muzaffer Gökçimen told Anadolu Agency (AA) that the corporation has created innovations that specialize in public health for nineteen years which they use these composites by paying regard public health, adding the commercial hemp fiber employed in composite creating absorbs radiation.
Gökçimen stated they principally build public health-related inventions.
"We understand innovations that don't exist in our country. We are selling our merchandise in Turkey. We have a tendency to principally build overseas sales on demand," he added, underlining the hemp issue has recently become quite fashionable in Turkey.
"We have really been functioning on the hemp issue for 3 years. We have a tendency to arrive ahead within the world in terms of composite hemp. We have a goal to approaching the highest spot on X-ray devices from hemp. Combining them was really helpful," he continued. "Hemp is blocking radiation. We have a goal to wipe out the chance of radiation in baggage controls at airports and disinfect the baggage that was quite successful. Whereas passing through the X-ray for safety at airports, the suitcases also will be disinfected."
Gökçimen added that they received the patents of X-ray devices made up of hemp composites in one hundred forty four countries. He also said that the device puts safety tags on the suitcases and disinfects it in seconds. He explained that composites are usually created by ways like "hand lay-up," "pressing" and "elastic pressing," whereas they turn out hemp composites with the mixed technique exploitation each laborious and soft surfaces.
"When we were creating our bullet-proof vests, we have encountered issues caused by the stiffness and weight of the vest. We thought hemp was light-weight and questioned if it may be employed in the method. The tests were quite promising. We are currently producing each light-weight and bullet-proof vests in accordance with the body's kind, by exploitation each soft and laborious components of the hemp," Gökçimen stated, stressing that these are twenty times stronger than traditional bullet-proof vests. "Normally, fibers and Kevlar are used in bulletproof vests. We are using resin additionally to hemp," he stated adding their vests are light-weight, cheap and comfy to use.
Gökçimen expressed they plan to supply bumpers and interior components from hemp composites for the automotive provider business in a year. TechnoArge Marketing and Sales Director Selim Özler, on the other hand, stated that biological epidemics and viruses that threaten public health will to stop these potential issues with the solutions of TechnoArge.
Özler distinguished that there are serious viruses in suitcases traveling with individuals that these viruses are transported to homes through suitcases, he stated that they took precautions with the X-ray they developed and prevented the radiation spreading to the surroundings with the device, that features a hemp coating of 65%.
Özler additionally stated that the sales of six X-ray devices to Istanbul Airport are completed. He stressed the steps band disinfecting device they developed may be a very important example of innovation within the world. He explained that the moving rail band is disinfected with a non-alcoholic material for 24 hours which the tests for the same device were with success completed at Sabiha Gökcen Airport, whereas test studies are still in progress at Istanbul Airport.
Selim Özler additionally noted that they developed hand disinfectant machines to be used in crowded places and these machines are in use within the passport section of Atatürk Airport for 2,5 months following the tests. He stated there are quite 13.000 hand-washes during this time and the coating material they created with hemp composite for the hand disinfectant machine prevents the outflow of diseases.
