After learning that with the newly configured system required some key changes to the drums, it was decided to move forward using the existing prototype to be able to prove to potential partners & investors the viability of a rapid feed system. Demonstrating with fiber only stalks obtained from Vanderhoof, BC the conveyor was filled with a random sampling of stalks ranging from 3/8 to 5/8″ diameter & cycled through. The results were better than expected, prompting Patrick the managing director to post raw video of the test which have since been taken down. With a renewed sense of purpose, a call went out to all private & public agencies to seek funding to develop the rapid feed system. Given the choice between spending $3000 for the chance to be accepted into the Growing Forward initiative or the Green Youth program that subsidizes the hire of employee who is under 30 years of age, we chose the later & are pleased to say that a licensed millwright will be assisting Canfiber to develop the system. Its unfortunate that our progress is so slow & that we seem to be the only ones excited about a revolutionary system that opens the door to mobile processing of high quality fibers- but it is worth every minute knowing what we have will one day be able to help people all over the world begin the switch to a real bioeconomy- by providing a means to produce high quality/ low cost fiber & cellulosic hurd.
