Sacramento, CA, August 11, 2021 — ENTEXS, a Sacramento-based engineering and fabrication technology company for hemp and cannabis extraction solutions has announced their industry-disrupting THC remediation system, the RMD-T Series, will soon be placed at FCM Global S.A.S.’ newest facility in Rionegro, Antioquia, Colombia. This system will be capable of remediating up to 70 liters of CBD crude per day.
THC remediation is the process of removing the psychoactive Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) from hemp derived extracts. In Colombia, the THC limit is 1%, however, to be utilized in the pharmaceutical industry and exported internationally, non-detect THC is needed. Most remediation options have high CBD loss rates of up to 30%, are not scalable, have very high CapEx/OpEx, or suffer from a combination of these. The ENTEXS RMD-T Series achieves a very low CBD loss rate (<5%), utilizes an organic solvent, and can be scaled to serve any size operation. The RMD- T Series is the most cost effective, high efficiency remediation solution on the market.
Agrocann Colombia S.A.S., a hemp and cannabis consultancy and service company, introduced the ENTEXS RMD technology to FCM Global to address their needs in offering a THC-free extract to their clients.
“It is an honor for Agrocann Colombia to work in alliance with FCM Global and ENTEXS in the arrival of the first high quality remediation system for Latin America. With this, we offer the market the possibility of solving the bottleneck of the 0.2% THC control limits. A big step for the industry and Colombia,” comments Agrocann Colombia S.A.S. CEO, Daniel Villate Cárdenas.
The scalability coupled with the ease of automated operation, low operational expenses and the system being designed and built to comply with EU GMP standards provided confidence to FCM Global that the RMD-T Series is their best solution.
“This strategic partnership will not only represent the first RMD-T Series in Colombia, but also serve as the largest and most efficient THC Remediation technology offered in the country.” states ENTEXS International Sales Director, Alejandro Sevilla.
FCM Global produces CBD oils, extracts and isolates using its “Co-Sourced Colombia” model to reliably deliver lower production costs and high-quality inputs for domestic and international markets in the nutritional, wellness, pharmaceutical and cosmetic sectors.
“This is a very important step for FCM to stay at the forefront of innovation and technology, while continuing its leadership in the cannabis industry. This technological advancement is aligned with FCM’s mission of improving health by providing safe and organic cannabinoids in Colombia, LATAM and the world. The partnership with ENTEXS allows us to fulfill our mission by offering high quality THC remediation services to other cannabis derivative producers in Colombia,” comments FCM Global S.A.S.
