Exploring co2 and Ethanol Extraction

Speaker
  • Founder and Chief Scientist at Eden Labs
    Biography
      Eden Labs evolved from Fritz's research about remote indigenous peoples using botanicals to cure illness. Early findings ignited a spark to unlock more secrets of botanicals using extraction and distillation. Curiosity became dedication as he pursued finding and producing more healthful, natural products for human health and consumption. Fritz began extraction disruption with the redesign of the century old soxhlet extractor, creating Eden Labs' trademark Coldfinger™ line.
      Experimentation continued-exploring the use of solvents, pressures, and temperatures-leading to Eden Labs' first Supercritical CO2 extraction machine, specifically engineered for small business, which Eden still serves but has organically expanded to include industrial plants. His breakthroughs provided purity and efficiency for start-ups and R&D in multiple industries, including nutraceuticals, functional foods, hemp, etc.
      Fritz's passion makes Eden Labs a trusted partner for those entering the new field of extraction and distillation of cannabis and other botanicals for the health of the world.

    Abstract

    Eden Labs Founder Fritz Chess, has been applying his intense curiosity on the effects of botanicals on human health and wellbeing to the extraction equipment industry for over 20 years.  While Eden labs utilizes multiple solvents in product development and custom engineers systems to fit the desired product developed, in this presentation, Mr. Chess will go over the historical evolution of extraction of botanicals and the cannabis industry as it pertains to two of the most desired extraction methodologies, Supercritical co2 and Ethanol.  Mr. Chess will dive into how ethanol extraction technology was revolutionized with the reinvention of the soxhlet in the early ‘90’s and why this technology is seeing a strong resurgence today.  He will also explain Eden’s impetus for introducing co2 extraction to the medical cannabis market in 1996, how co2  works and where its highest and best use is in today’s market.

    Eden Labs has invested years of continued research and development to promote occupational safety, commercial extraction efficiency and the product purity required to further the future of the industry.  These areas are of great importance to your bottom line and your understanding of the importance and responsibility inherent in the growing field of extraction technology.

    Learning Objectives:

    • A basic understanding of Ethanol and co2 extraction and the equipment utilized to perform these types of extraction
    • The ability to discern what type of extraction methodology and equipment that best suits the needs of your business model
