KELOWNA — On Mar. 9, Vitalis Extraction Technology, Inc. announced the introduction of its Cosolvent Injection System (CIS). The patent-pending technology delivers the purities of the CO2 extraction process while leveraging the power of ethanol to reduce runtime and operational costs, and improve post-processing.
As Vitalis CEO, Joel Sherlock, explains that the Vitalis CIS has been designed to help companies scale their operations, by reducing their cost per gram. “From the beginning, our innovation has been led by customer collaboration, and the launch of Vitalis CIS is no exception. The industry has matured, demand has increased, and our customers need to be able to keep pace. Backed by data from real-world application, we have developed a flexible solution for greater operational efficiency and extraction accuracy.”
The Vitalis cosolvent option purports to provide flexibility that extractors will need to expand their operations and grow their product lines. Compared to a CO2 extraction using conventional winterization methods, or a cold ethanol extraction, the cosolvent process reduces the volume of ethanol used for each gram of oil produced. Engineered as a plug-n-play add-on rather than alteration to CO2 extraction equipment, the Vitalis CIS design allows for continued operation of Q-series and R-series equipment for mono-solvent CO2 processing when desired.
Vitalis has been used by companies in the manufacturing and industrial industries. The introduction of Vitalis CIS aims to best serve the company’s core customer base that includes producers of cannabis and hemp while maintaining the bar for safety, service and performance. Vitalis CIS is currently patent pending.
