LANGLEY, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 16, 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 commencement of its hydrocarbon extraction expansion plan.

“At Adastra we are very excited as we begin our hydrocarbon extraction expansion plan. This is our 3rd production line for extraction that supplements our operating CO2 Supercritical extraction line and cryo-ethanol extraction line that will shortly complete installation. Adastra intends to help fulfill the demand for hydrocarbon concentrate products as part of our long-term strategy for revenue growth and product diversification.” – Andy Hale, CEO Adastra.

Adastra recently completed a detailed design and submitted a building permit for the internal modifications for its hydrocarbon cannabis extraction system. CodeNext Inc., a Toronto-based engineering firm, was engaged to ensure a compliant building and fire code design. Adastra will be inserting a purpose-built extraction booth into its extraction hall to house ExtractionTek Solutions hydrocarbon extraction system. Adastra worked with the HAL Extraction team to select and customize an extraction booth sized to fit two ExtractionTek Solutions extraction systems.

Adastra is further pleased to announce an agreement with ExtractionTek Solutions (ETS) for procurement of its first hydrocarbon extraction system. The ETS MeP XT70 system can extract over 400 KG per day of cannabis biomass into a variety of hydrocarbon cannabis concentrate products. The MeP XT70 provides the flexibility to run Propane, Butane, and blended solvents and gives the operator the ability to produce ALL of today’s popular cannabis concentrate products. For example, this hydrocarbon extraction capacity could produce over 50 KG per day of high-THC shatter cannabis concentrate.

“With the addition of the ExtractionTek Hydrocarbon Extraction Solution, Adastra can produce in-demand cannabis extract products such as Live Resin, Shatter, Wax, Budder, and THCA Diamonds. The combination of the three extraction systems at Adastra will provide an unparalleled ability to produce a wide-variety of top quality extracts to meet the needs of our customers and consumers.” – Dr. Kyle Boniface, Director of Production, Adastra

Since Cannabis 2.0 inception in October 2019, Health Canada data shows Medical & Non-Medical Sale of packaged cannabis extract products has more than doubled; however, there are only a handful of SKUs for hydrocarbon-specific cannabis concentrate products such as live resin or shatter in Canada clearly highlighting that this popular legacy market set of products is underserved.

“ETS provides the only hydrocarbon extraction systems certified for operations in Canada. We are happy to provide the MeP XT70 system to Adastra as it was recently certified and is over twice the capacity of our previously certified system. This will provide Adastra with a capacity edge as it brings hydrocarbon extraction online in the Canadian regulated cannabis market.” – Matthew Ellis, President ETS.
