The challenge of scale is neither trivial nor linear. To get to the next level of scale, beyond 500-1000 lbs per day, a new paradigm of extraction is needed. We are working on something revolutionary: a breakthrough in processing technique to allow 10-100x increases in productivity, with reduction in labor required.
We are currently building proof-of-concept, demonstration systems at 1/5th to 1/10th scale: 100 kg per hour, continuous feed, self-discharging process trains, for hemp and cannabis. These unit operations scale to 1000 kg per hour and beyond. This will allow us to build automated pilot plants that process 2 tons per day, scaling up to 20-200 ton per day. You are only limited by your budget.
