Infinity Supercritical is developing a 400L (100+ lbs/hr) industrial botanicals extraction system. This system uses common distilled water as the solvent, which provides a completely hydrocarbon or CO2 solvent free extraction method, which is the first organic extraction method to be introduced into the Cannabis industry.
The system is closed-loop and recycles the distilled water through a series of elegant, but simple, mechanical separation methods. The spent botanicals can be recycled and composed, or remediated through a add-on module which converts the plant matter to CO2 by using a patented system.
The system has other add-on high-tech innovation modules which can recover waste heat into electricity (Tribogen), a solid state chiller, ESP (electrostatic precipitation), and a Tesla disc pump. The system was developed, and uses the modular fluid handling device (US Patent 7726331), which is commonly referred to as the Modular Block, which was termed an industrial Lego by the National Science Foundation.
The modular system has a ROI payback within days, when used for processing legal Cannabis trim in a licensed facility.
The system can also be used for the continuous production of QD (Quantum Dots) which may be our future solar cell and battery technology. These are the same technologies that are being looked at and developed by Apple, Google, and Tesla.
Infinity is pleased to announce and industry first – organic oil extraction which does not use Butane or CO2. Using a food industry proven method called SDR (Spinning Disc Reactor), botanical oil can now be extracted at room pressure and temperature.
The benefits of a SDR system developed by Infinity Supercritical LLC (patented) are:
• Standard Room Temperature and Pressure Extraction
• Fast Reaction Time (measured in seconds)
• Continuous Feed Operation
• Uses Standard Distilled Water
• Organic Extraction (no additives to remove later)
• Industrial Volume Extraction (5-100+ lbs of input material per hour)
• Modular Compact System (can be built into a trailer or standard shipping container)
• Push Button Operation (no complex PLC or operator technique required – it just works)
The SDR can also be used in other industries, including the production of semi-conductor nanocrystals called Quantum Dots (QD).
This new systems provides a quantum leap forward in options available to botanical extraction production, by simplifying extraction technique (push a button) and monitor the continuous feed and flow. If Apple were to design a botanicals extraction system, this would be it.

We are starting to get lots of calls from California regarding cultivation and using our extraction systems for oil production and sales for January 2018. The current strategy is to put up cultivation, and then start extraction after harvest. While this may seem intuitively correct, it is the worst strategy for cash-flow.
Start-up Cultivation Means Delayed Cash-flow
If you start with cultivation, you’re looking at 9 -12 months to begin getting cash-flow (in the process from building the grow-house to mature harvest). The time might be a bit better for pure indoor grow, but still a long time regardless. This means you will need a large amount of initial capital outlay, to build facilities, and during the grow. This is valuable time that can be better utilized.
Start with Extraction of Oil for Cash-flow
The profit-makers out in the Cannabis industry have realized that while you can make money cultivating (which everybody is doing), faster access to cash-flow is from the value-added sector, of running extraction machines to produce live resin, shatter, crumb, concentrates for edibles, and vape- pen oil.
Don’t have your own Cannabis product ? Then check with your state regulations and purchase trim or other products from producers who do not have extraction facilities, and then work the value-added space. $50 a pound trim has the potential to get you more than $200 of oil extract. That’s a minimum of four times the value of the trim, and great cash-flow. Of course you will still need to look into the extraction license and other regulations, but this gets you started faster, and with less capital outlay.
Equity Versus Cash-flow
This type strategy gets you faster cash-flow and the all-important sales. This builds equity faster, and requires less initial capital. Starting with just a licensed extraction facility can provide you with a springboard of capital which you can leverage into your own indoor grow, or expanding extraction machinery and capabilities.
