LANGLEY, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 13, 2020 – Adastra Labs Holdings Ltd. (CSE: XTRX) (FRANKFURT: D2EP) (‘Adastra’) a Health Canada Licensed cannabis processing and analytical testing services Company, is pleased to announce the full-scale operation of its cryo-ethanol extraction system from Evolved Extraction Solutions (‘Evolved’).
‘We are pleased to announce the successful commissioning of our industrial-scale cryo-ethanol system from Evolved Extraction Solutions. The EV-MASS cryo-ethanol extraction system has performed flawlessly as we put it through the paces at our facility in Langley, BC. With excellent cannabinoid recovery, the EV-MASS has tripled our capacity for production of cannabis oil.’ – Andy Hale, CEO Adastra.
The Evolved team integrated with the Adastra production workforce to commission the EV-MASS system while leveraging remote support from the Yellowstone Falling Film Evaporator operations team. Both the EV-MASS cryo-ethanol system and the Yellowstone high-volume ethanol recovery system met all operational targets for the commissioning. The high-quality cannabis oil has produced superior high potency cannabis THC distillate after follow-on processing with Adastra’s molecular wiped-film distillation systems.
The EV-MASS cryo-ethanol system has commenced full operational capability after processing several hundred kilograms of cannabis biomass in a fraction of the time required by other extraction systems. The commissioning validated the ability of the system to process 650 KG of cannabis or hemp biomass per day, has made Adastra’s CO2 extraction line available for other concentrate products and reduced substantially the time required to produce cannabis oils and THC distillate. The industrial-scale EV-MASS system has become fully operation just in time to exploit the large processing demand the first outdoor Canadian cannabis harvest brings.
‘We are very pleased the EV-MASS performed as well as it did. We are excited to continue operational performance testing with Adastra as they ramp up their production. This will provide valuable data to both Adastra and Evolved on optimal performance parameters to maximize efficiency and throughput.’ Adam Temple, CEO, Evolved Extraction Solutions.
