Bio-Based Graphene

Unlocking Applications For High Performance Carbons

Graphene manufactured from minerals tends to have inconsistent morphology. The cell wall of the hemp fiber is strong and consistent. This makes hemp fiber the perfect input feedstock for composite-grade graphene.

Bio Based Graphene At Commodity Scale & Price

Imperium Graphene is designed to bond, perform, and disperse inside thermoplastics without any retooling costs.

Most manufacturers have a difficult time dispersing graphene because of the small particle size. Heartland has focused on the functionalization and dispersion of bio-based graphene.

Drop-In Additive

Functionalized Graphene

Heartland is producing lab-scale quantities of lower-carbon-footprint graphene to help manufacturers create stronger, lighter, cheaper, and more sustainable products.

Augmenting Mines & Synthetic Additives

Unlocking The Sustainable Future We Need And Deserve

Heartland's materials replace and augment additives like talc, calcium carbonate, fiberglass, and carbon black.

We work with global brands and their suppliers to predictably reduce the carbon footprint of everyday products without any retooling costs.

Your Sustainability Partner

Throughout The Supply Chain


Heartland partners with corn, wheat, and soy farmers to embed industrial hemp into their crop rotation. Our USDA Grant has given us unique insights into industrial hemp farming, regenerative agriculture, and carbon sequestration.


Heartland partners with plastic compounders to augment talc, calcium, and glass without any retooling costs. Our Imperium masterbatch solves dust, flammability, bonding, and bulk density problems typically associated with bio-based additives.


Heartland partners with plastic converters to ensure the hemp-filled resin is processed properly. Our team works alongside component part manufacturers to process natural fiber-filled plastic with the same molds used today.


Heartland is the sustainability partner for brands on their journey to reduce their carbon footprint. Our team helps create stakeholder alignment so companies can effectively communicate the value of sustainable material innovation.
