About speaker

Laura Breit
Principal and Mechanical Engineer at ColeBreit Engineering

Laura Breit is the founder and owner of Oregon-based firms Root Engineers and ColeBreit Engineering. She is a professional mechanical engineer specializing in the design of HVAC, plumbing, and process systems for the cannabis industry. Using her experience in traditional engineering methods through Root Engineers parent company, ColeBreit Engineering, she applies her team’s depth of knowledge to create efficient and economically sound solutions for cultivation and processing facilities. Taking a custom approach to each project, Laura has experience working in the traditional design-bid-build method, as well as in the design-build arena. She enjoys the dynamic nature of the cannabis industry, and since legalization in her home state of Oregon in 2014, Laura has led her team of mechanical and electrical engineers on more than 80 cannabis-related projects across the country. She thrives on building relationships with building owners, growers, architects, contractors and investors. Laura received her Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from UC Santa Barbara and a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and is a LEED Accredited Professional.

About the talk

As cannabis flower consumption falls to less than 50 percent of the market share in North America, it is clear that a number of consumers prefer the ease and convenience of extracts and edibles. Cannabis businesses preparing for the future of the industry - driven by changing consumer tastes - are finding that the right design to support their extraction operation is increasingly critical to business performance. A wrong step in the early development stages can be extremely costly, especially if operations are facing inspection failure or lack of ability to scale with growth.

This session will explore hydrocarbon vs. non-hydrocarbon extraction methods, and the different regulatory considerations that go along with producing extracts. Attendees will develop a strong understanding of the different federal, state, and local governing bodies and codes, as well as dive into the space classification and permitting processes.

Learning Objectives:
- Define the different methods of extraction, including hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon processes.
- Explore the local, state, and federal governing bodies involved in regulating extraction operations.
- Examine common regulatory mistakes and complications from an experienced engineering perspective.
- Learn about space classification and maximum allowable quantities and how they relate to the extraction process.
- Dive into the permitting process and the different steps involved at each stage of building an extraction operation.

Thank you very much. So today we're going to talk about something that I could easily put you to sleep. It's important information, but I can try to keep it as exciting as possible. But I am an engineer. So keep that in mind. So today we're going to be talking about regulatory considerations for extraction operations. My expertise our company does mechanical electrical plumbing engineering and I'm a professional engineer licensed in mechanical engineering so my background was all

has always been an HVAC heating ventilation air conditioning within that realm does come to any sort of ventilation comes into that and extraction facilities have a lot of ventilation requirements. So that was kind of how we got into this. We've now employed an electrical engineer or is it a lot that goes into the electrical component. And I'm even the plumbing components when you're setting up these facilities. So keep in mind that what we're going to talk about is mainly the facility design not the parts

and pieces of the extraction equipment. However, I know it's slightly a little bit about that if you have questions and have to talk to you about that afterward so or definitely put you in touch with people that know more than I do. So this is just about we were my company is called Colburn engineering were based in Bend, Oregon. We start charcoal bright and in 2013 and 2014 with started getting calls for cannabis cultivation. Mainly at that point
