May 13th, 2019 – Adastra Labs Holdings Ltd. (“Adastra” or the “Company”) announces successful Public Hearing at the Langley Civic Facility for its site re-zoning. Adastra subsidiary Chemia Analytics Head of Laboratory Priyanka Nalawade noted, “The Public Hearing went very smoothly with good discussion about the measures Adastra is taking to abate and control odours at the facility. We have been designing our facility to meet and exceed future Metro Vancouver emissions control regulations, still in draft form, for air quality at cannabis processing facilities.” The Adastra team has designed the facility to use HEPA intake filtration and activated charcoal exhaust filtration for air quality control to assist it to meet Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards. CEO Andy Hale explained the lengths Adastra has gone to ensure air quality standards will be exceeded and odours completely abated, particularly given the nature of the facility as a standard processor and analytical testing lab versus a standard cultivator.
With 1st Reading, 2nd Reading and the Public Hearing successfully complete, the re-zoning text amendment for Adastra’s Gloucester Industrial Park facility will continue with a 3rd and Final Reading together on the 27th of May in the Langley Civic Facility where the Township of Langley Councilmembers will cast their final votes. The re-zoning effort marks the first time in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia a site will be specifically zoned for cannabis standard processing and analytical testing.
