January 28th, 2020 – Adastra Labs Inc. (“Adastra”) announces the installation of its cannabis processing equipment at their facility Langley, BC (the “Facility”). In early December Adastra accepted the delivery of a GMP-compliant Series 140 supercritical CO2 extraction system and post-processing equipment from extraktLAB, a brand of United Science LLC. The installation of the equipment required the sanitary supply of liquid CO2, CO2 exhaust, compressed air, chiller lines and high voltage power. The processing equipment is also tied in to Adastra life safety gas detection system to ensure the safest working environment for processing personnel.
Completion of the extraction equipment and post-processing equipment installation will allow Adastra to create high value cannabis extract products from cannabis plant material immediately following the issuance of a Standard Processing Licence from Health Canada. The Series 140 extractor and associated post-processing equipment is capable of efficiently and safely removing THC and CBD from over 58,000 kg of cannabis biomass per year without the use of hydrocarbon solvents.
“The installation of our CO2 extraction cannabis processing equipment will allow Adastra to fulfill our existing supply and toll-processing agreements with Licensed cultivators,” stated Adastra CEO Andy Hale.
