Ralph Waldo Emerson told us that if we build a better mousetrap, the world will beat a path to our door. Our Board chairman and lead engineer truly believes in that mentality, and has put it into practice.
His story begins over a decade and a half ago while attending a function at the engineering school that he graduated from, and that changed everything.
After hearing a presentation on supercritical CO2 extraction at his engineering alma mater, he asked to be allowed to test some herbal material on the laboratory model being displayed at the university.
The results from those test runs were so amazing he couldn't wait to put it into production but the machine had limited scope and was not conducive to large-scale production. Additionally, the price for the flawed equipment was far too much to consider, given it's limitations.
So our team, headed up by Mr. Soman, set out to recreate the technology with an eye on production value and speed of extraction.
After months of research, and experimentation the first generation CO2 extractor was completed.
Over the last decade and a half, the design has improved a great deal. The speed of extraction, low energy consumption, and cGMP designs are highly valued worldwide.
However, it is the over 200,000 hours of experience in botanical extraction using those designs that really sets our team apart from the rest.
