We were able to create a small block of wood in order to establish some variables and test our process. Our tiny boat started as 2"x4"x1" block and was hand sanded using 80 grit and 220 grit sandpaper. Stay tuned for the float test as we determine the amount of moisture absorbed by the tiny boat
Hudson Farms, LLC has been busy the last few weeks, and now planting is complete! 14.2 million hemp seeds that will grow to an average height of 13-16' and then harvested for lumber! These plants will be harvested in October.
We have made quite a bit of progress in our journey to provide superior, sustainable lumber. Here are some highlights of what we have accomplished so far.

ODIN Materials was founded in order to create environmentally responsible and sustainable materials from carbon capture processes. The materials we create will also aid in the success of innovative technologies that utilize advanced materials. As society shifts to greener technologies, the materials and the ways that we create them must shift as well.
Conscious Design Podcast
Hosted by our CEO, Ian Peterman
Sustainability should support people, our planet, and your businesses profit. Ian Peterman, leading expert in Conscious Design, legacy branding, and product development, hosts two types of episodes. The first is a 5x weekly short Q&A to common product development questions we get and our users submit. The second, are interviews with forward thinkers, designers, sustainability experts, and others on how to make a better world through conscious design. Join us for weekly episodes packed with unique perspectives and innovative ideas.
Episodes of the podcast can be found on the Peterman Design Firm website at https://www.petermanfirm.com/conscious-design-podcast/
Hemp is more versatile than trees as it can be used to create everything that wood can and a lot that it can't. Like batteries, concrete, and plastics. Making materials from hemp will also help the soil in which it is grown in.
Demonstrating the capability of this material through lumber will also establish the groundwork for further operations. By establishing our process and enabling us the ability to create several materials from one machine.
As an added benefit, locally sourced hemp produces locally sourced materials. Creating a new industry, no matter where we set up shop. Increasing the capability of several areas that normally would have supply chain issues.
Lumber is important in many ways, creating that lumber from a different plant can provide several new opportunities.
Direct Air Capture
ODIN Materials is working towards our largest goal, the Large Scale Direct Air Capture system (LSDAC), the largest of our planned carbon capture systems. This system will be able to produce 150,000,000 kgs of carbon nanomaterials per hour and help us achieve the goal of one gigaton of carbon captured per year.
Smaller integrated systems (IDACS) will be used in several different areas in order to serve multiple industries, both in capturing and also allowing certain industries to continue functioning. IDACS used in agriculture will help us reduce carbon outputs that come with normal operations. Systems used in cities will produce valuable minerals for fertilizers used in vertical farms and greenhouses. These systems will turn our biggest global problem into our most valuable asset and get us closer to defeating climate change.
Who We Are
ODIN Materials, Inc., is a company founded on the dream of a better future for humanity and our planet as a whole.
The Founders of ODIN Materials are Ian Peterman, Doc and Rebecca Hudson. We started this company in order to use technology and fundamental processing methods in our own way to make a large difference in the way materials are manufactured. We believe the future for our children should be bright and this is our first step.
We have many experiences and qualifications that will help us along this journey. Support from colleagues, family, and friends, keeps our heads high as we embark to tackle such an incredible task. This motivates us to adapt and learn whatever we need to in order to succeed.
Doc and Rebecca are also the owners of a Hemp farm located in Eastern Oregon. Hudson Farms, LLC was founded with the intention of supplying Industrial hemp fiber for our mission with ODIN and also to provide cannabis to those who suffer from chronic pain or PTSD. Doc Hudson is a U.S. Army veteran and is very passionate about this mission as it could help thousands of people who deal with the same stressors that he deals with daily.
