Evolved will provide equipment, installation, commissioning, and training services for their EV-MASS Cryo-Ethanol system. Evolved is Required to meet performance milestones for their extraction equipment. The EV-MASS Cryo-Ethanol extraction system is capable of processing 650 KG of cannabis or hemp biomass per day, producing winterized (de-waxed) cannabis or hemp oil.

“The EV-MASS Cryo-Ethanol system brings Adastra an industrial-scale cannabis/hemp oil production capability. This capability is expected to triple Adastra’s CO2 supercritical extraction production line’s capacity. Further, the system has reduced manpower requirements compared to other extraction processes and will allow Adastra to free up its CO2 extraction line for other typesof concentrate products, such as High Terpene Full Spectrum Extracts.” Dr. Kyle Boniface, Adastra Director of Production.

The EV-MASS integrated solution provides an optimized process flow that is expected to reduce the cost of production. The modular design permits Adastra to easily scale up capacity with simplified installation in the event of increased market demand.

“We are excited to be working with the team at Adastra. Being able to provide our industrial -scale cryo-ethanol EV-MASS extraction solution to Adastra, located only minutes from our Pitt Meadows, British Columbia facility is a great opportunity. We are confident our “Evolved Performance Promise” will ensure Adastra’s production capacity is substantially increased with high-quality cannabis and hemp extractions. We designed the system with Adastra’s growth plans in mind and we’ve already begun planning upcoming upgrades to the system for when they need additional throughput out of their new production line.” Adam Temple, CEO, Evolved Extraction Solutions.
