Adastra Labs Holdings Ltd. (CSE:XTRX)(FRANKFURT: D2EP) (“Adastra”) a Health Canada Licensed cannabis processing and analytical testing services Company, is pleased to announce the completion of installation and start of commissioning of its cryo-ethanol extraction system from Evolved Extraction Solutions (“Evolved”).
“We are pleased to announce the installation of a high-capacity cryo-ethanol system from Evolved Extraction Solutions.

The Evolved team provided equipment and installation services along with support from the Yellowstone Falling Film Evaporator OEM. The combination of the EV-MASS cryo-ethanol system with the high-volume ethanol recovery unit from Yellowstone substantially reduces the time to produce large volumes of cannabis oil ready for molecular distillation into high potency THC distillate.
Commissioning and training services for the EV-MASS cryo-ethanol system has commenced with full operational capability planned in the coming weeks to ensure the EV-MASS system meets performance requirements. The cryo-ethanol extraction system is capable of processing 650 KG of cannabis or hemp biomass per day, producing winterized (de-waxed) cannabis or hemp oil.
The EV-MASS integrated solution provides an optimized process flow that is expected to reduce the costs of production. The modular design permits Adastra to easily scale up capacity with simplified installation in the event of increased market demand. Further, the cryo-ethanol system frees up Adastra’s CO2 extraction line for other types of concentrate products and will reduce the time required to produce cannabis oil as it comes online.
“This has been an innovative installation at Adastra, we were able to integrate new technologies to maximize the facilities potential. We are eager to demonstrate the performance of this customized EV-MASS integrated solution. With the benefit of being only a few minutes from Adastra, the Evolved Team is able to provide ongoing support to ensure Adastra achieves the production and efficiency its business operations require.” Adam Temple, CEO, Evolved Extraction Solutions.
