SNOW HILL, N.C.--()--BioTech Mills, a "green tech" company headquartered in North Carolina, with plants and operations in Georgia, Texas and Kolkata (Calcutta), India, is set to announce a network of global distribution. BioTech Mills owns and operates the largest kenaf natural fiber processing facility in North America. It also owns the largest inventory of raw kenaf in the Western Hemisphere. Kenaf is an annually renewable green plant crop that uses no toxic materials in the proprietary processing technologies developed by BioTech Mills. Kenaf is very positive on the reduction of carbon green house gasses and enriches, rather than depletes, the soil where it is grown. The kenaf plant provides both high tensile strength fiber as well as a high cellulose internal core. The US Navy, in an independent study, has labeled kenaf as the "most absorbent natural material on earth."
Using proprietary technologies, BioTech Mills converts the raw kenaf into end products essential to the oil well drilling, automotive plastic composites and absorbents markets. BioTech Mills is global, across several key "essential" industries, and sells to and through Global Fortune 1,000 companies. BioTech Mills is active on both sides of the global energy equation. On the production side, its proprietary DrillWall product is a drilling fluid additive that enables oil and gas wells to be drilled in a safer manner and at a lower production cost for the petroleum industry. On the energy product side, BioTech Mills is a leader in the development of "green", renewable, natural fiber plastic composites for replacement of petroleum based fiberglass and the BioTech Mills kenaf fiber products are used by a number of the major global automotive companies. The BioTech Mills’ composite solutions are stronger, lighter, lower cost, renewable and are produced in key global locations.
BioTech Mills has also created a major absorbent product line for oil spill cleanup and hazardous liquid spill cleanup that is very cost efficient and has superior absorbent capacity of up to 30 times greater than competing products. BioTech Mills produces products that are green solutions for the energy sector and products for the cleaning up the environment after a spill.
