CHARLOTTETOWN, Jan. 24, 2019 /CNW/ – Industry pioneer and trailblazer, Advanced Extraction Systems Inc. (AESI) is pleased to announce their latest innovation, the highest throughput CO2 extraction system for the Global cannabis and hemp markets.

AESI has announced they have designed and engineered a 2X1000L, expandable to 4X1000L, supercritical CO2 fluid extraction system capable of processing approximately 4,500kg of dried biomass per day which translates to over 1.6 Million kilograms per annum. Actual yield is based on initial biomass potency. 

David Campbell, AESI’s Co-Founder & COO states, “Keeping up with our customers aggressive growth plans has to be at the forefront of our research and development goals.  We design our equipment to be modular and expandable to scale up with our customers future capacity requirements.”  Nick Desroches, Engineering Manager for AESI confirms, “Coriolis mass-flow meters are standard equipment on every system in our impressive and growing product line.”  He continues by stating, “Our newest 2X1000L system demonstrates a ground-breaking 100kg/minute flow-rate which is verified by the Coriolis mass-flow meter.”

Mr. Campbell continues, “We are very excited to see the Hemp Industry opening up after the passing of the 2019 Farm Bill in the United States.  To date, an industry wide concern for Licensed Producers has been sourcing industrial scale CO2 extraction equipment with the ability to process tons of biomass. Our latest development is the perfect solution with impressive throughput numbers that will help ensure producers can grow their businesses to new heights.”

In November 2018, AESI won the Emerging Business Award from the Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce after demonstrating remarkable growth, innovation, and industry leadership.  AESI continues to be a pioneer in this emerging industry as their latest development will assist Licensed Producers in meeting demand for oil and CBD related products.
