Running machinery during off-peak hours is a good way for manufacturing operations to save costs and energy.
AVOIDING WASTE IN CANNABIS
EXTRACTION & PROCESSING
Sustainability efforts in the cannabis extraction and processing sector have been constrained by
the overuse of raw materials such as energy consumption by private companies.
" The biggest culprits for environmental impact are energy use, solvent use and the creation of tainted
or hazardous waste material, " says Katie Stem, CEO at Peak Extracts based in Portland, Oregon.
According to some experts, not all cannabis extraction and processing companies share the
sustainability mindset.
" Based on my experience, the industry is divided into two camps: those who care about the
environmental impact of the cannabis industry, and those who don't, " says Stem. " Convincing those
who don't (care) that they should, when it will likely cut into their profitability, is nearly impossible.
" I've seen people throwing toxic solvents and contaminated distillation byproducts into the trash
or sewer system, " she adds. " I've also had a number of conversations with people who genuinely do
not care about their environmental impact, period. "
Stem, whose company embraces carbon-dioxide extraction because of its versatility and limited
environmental impact, says more operators are starting to embrace solventless extraction
techniques.
" Many of us are finding ways to offset the energy used by extraction equipment and moving toward
lower energy-use methods, " Stem adds.
