Green Industrial Manufacturing Ecosystems

Overview of

The expansion of cannabidiol (CBD) oil industrial production in Ohio represents a significant opportunity to develop products using waste hemp biomass. Our goal is to make the Mahoning Valley a premier location for research and development of new hemp products. Hemp is just one arm of our work to create a Green Industrial Manufacturing Ecosystem (GIME) hub in the Mahoning Valley.
