About speaker

Ahmed Shuja
Founder at Ecosce, Inc.

Dr. Shuja posses an unusual mixture of deep scientific background and executive leadership necessary to develop the technology and business offerings for the fast-pace cannabis market. Previously at OGZ Holdings Ahmed was responsible for consulting on the build-out of extraction facilities. Over the past four years, he has been studying the best methods for scaling of the Hemp and Cannabis chemical processing industry. Dr. Shuja was awarded a patent in 2018 about pulsed electric fields than can affect large scale extraction and drying of hemp. This was an example of an innovation project that explores technology from the food processing industry.He continues to develop novel methods and best practices targeting the lowest cost per gram manufacturing of cannabinoids. In January of 2019, Dr. Shuja announced the spin out of Ecosce Inc. from OGZ Holdings with a focus on commercializing room temperature winterization and desolvation. This novel process called the Ecosce process will be the focus of his discussion.

About the talk

The current practice of removal of wax, lipids and free fatty acids currently requires the freezing of oil while dissolved in a solvent. The process is followed by reclaiming of the solvent by a wiped film evaporation. A process that saves 90% of the energy compared to these two steps and reduces operations cost >50% will be discussed. The process allows the solvent to be reclaimed at room temperature. Processing data will be reviewed on how the ecosce process was developed. The aforementioned current industry process economics will be compared to the use of size exclusion membranes adapted from the desalination industry. The economics of the two processes will be reviewed and compared as related to scaling of hemp and cannabis oil processing. A discussion of issues related to permitting and fire code will be discussed as many production facilities currently struggle with solvent storage limitations.

I would like to introduce the Founder of Ecosce Inc Doctor Ahmed Shuja take it away, Thank you. All right. I appreciate everybody coming along for this talk. It's been a long time coming doing some research here in this field. I'm the Founder of Ecosce Incorporated. We are making some equipment for the room temperature winterization and desolation for the Cannabis and hemp Market. Let's talk a a little bit about our road to get here. I have a Ph.D. in electrical engineering and people like what's that got to do with chemical engineering but

I studied a field called memes in my Graduate Studies and I put together a chemical process set for doing semiconductor processing. So I studied a lot of chemistry and chemical processes back then. And then I went on to Siemens Corporation. They funded the tail end of my work after my Ph.D. and I was at Siemens and I was an innovator and I was in charge of looking up at how to commercialize technology within the Siemens ecosystem. So it's an unusual role where you're looking at both doing commercial R&D. And then also looking at could

you create a company out of these technologies and bring them to the Market? So along the way, I sold my first company, and then I started looking at the Cannabis and hemp Market. And I started back in 2014, but me to business partners they were involved earlier than me and they were Special Forces veterans operating a cannabis lab in Wenatchee Washington making oil and I started going to see them and said, hey we should do
