our process

The Hurd Co Tech

Closed loop. Water wise. Energy efficient. Simple.

We recapture and reuse 99% of our solvent each time we run the process. Our process uses half as much water as traditional pulping, and up to 350X less energy.
The Hurd Co’s proprietary process was invented by our CTO, Dr. Charles Cai.

Sustainability is the backbone of The Hurd Co.

The founders met in graduate school while earning their masters in Environmental Science and Management. Making a clean, green fiber has always been our priority. Using agricultural waste instead of raw materials dramatically reduces our impact, but it was a priority for us to ensure that our process was equally clean.
