What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

The earliest known use of fiber in civilization was found nearly 10,000 years ago & still going strong in Asia. To obtain the highest quality fiber, it must be peeled by hand. NO MORE! Biofiber has (& is) the greatest crop society has ever known, only now its understood what it can do to lower our carbon footprints. It is in that spirit that a low cost method to mechanically peel the stalks was born. Through nearly a decade of development, it was found early on that the legendary fiber could be used against itself. (8) prototypes & patent dues later, the final version is ready to move to a pilot version but we need your help to get the technology to the finish line! We have been getting stone-walled by govt. entity's who verbally approve a project but don't act, or receive stalk samples that aren't as stated, potentially screwing our test results. Investors won't touch an unproven technology & farmers don't want to be guinea pigs (another tragic chicken & egg story).

 Our plan is two-fold. By funding development of the pilot, we will be able to work off of 41 acres of X-59 close to our shop to fulfill your orders. Once proven & optimized, Canfiber seeks to go public, to not only license its technology worldwide & make a positive impact in the fight against climate change, but also become a bulk supplier of technical-grade fiber & pelletized hurd cellulose in the Canadian market. 

Risks and challenges

Yes our ribbon its overpriced, but it is only temporary, I promise! The current price for peeled fiber in China is $5 USD per Kg. Once the technology is optimized, a partnership with PAMI to develop a double-cut windrower capable of producing twin windrows of tops & stalks in one shot will proceed. When that happens, expect the price for high-grade fiber to drop to below $2 US per Kg.
With the passing of legislation in Canada this year, the barriers to the transport of leaves, seeds & flowers was relaxed, allowing a unique opportunity for Canfiber to work with CBD & Seed farmers to process their fields free of charge- & offer them $100 CAD per ton for their leftover stalks.
This is no joke, we are dedicated to seeing RD technology used by regular farmers around the world. We understand the challenges that go into it, that is why we believe it needs to stay in Canada to continually improve the technology to the point that a farmer in a third-world country would understand how to operate & maintain it.
By becoming a bulk distributor of fiber & chips to start, further refinements to the technology can be afforded without having to hold our hat out.
