What is it about?
This publication discusses the process of converting leftover hemp plant material to create new products. The authors analyzed the factors that affect this process, such as temperature and conversion. They also used a machine learning method to predict the activation energy required by the process. This information is helpful for creating more sustainable products from hemp and reducing waste.
