Chinese ingredients maker will produce oil, CBD distillate, and crystallised isolate at new US plant
Layn Corp has launched its new line of CBD ingredients at this year's IFT19 in New Orleans. The company, a Chinese natural ingredients manufacturer, has embarked on building a new manufacturing facility to support this new line. The facility is expected to be operational by Autumn 2020.
The new plant will be Layn's first in the US. It has been designed to have the capability of processing a minimum of 5,000 tonnes of hemp biomass per year. This will yield 160 tonnes of high purity CBD and 290 tonnes of full spectrum oil annually. Upon completion, the facility will be the company’s fourth factory globally.
The project’s total investment is estimated to be US$60 million, most of which will go into the construction of the new US-based facility. Layn is currently in the process of completing the filing procedures to receive approval for this project.

“Layn has over 20 years of experience in biomass farming management and our world-class R&D team has developed advanced botanical extraction technology that we are now applying to hemp farming and CBD extraction,” said Frank Xie, EVP and Board Director of Guilin Layn Natural Ingredients Corp.
Xie continued to say that the company has taken great care in building a sustainable supply chain for its ingredients, hoping to carry the same standards to CBD manufacturing.
Layn has partnered with farmers that have been growing hemp since the Farm Bill passed in 2014. With this partnership, in Fall 2019, Layn will offer CBD products from large scale farming operations with the ability to utilise cutting edge cultivation techniques within both organic and conventional certified hemp.
Layn will make its CBD ingredients available in a number of forms, including:
Layn has been cultivating in the plant extraction industry for over 20 years. It has partnered and carried out business with hundreds of food & beverage, health & nutrition, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, personal care and animal nutrition companies in more than 60 countries and regions around the world.
The company is working with many of these manufacturers to meet the demands for applications of industrial hemp, and the development of new hemp-based businesses.
