THIS WEEK'S UPDATE

  • Finished data analysis, interpretations and reported the findings for the 11 reactor trials on autohydrolysis (pretreatment of hemp without any chemicals)
  • Tested industrial food grade enzymes for loading optimization (what is the minimum we need to add to get the results we want)
  • Tested the effect of hemicellulose (removed in pretreatment) on the efficacy of food grade cellulase enzymes
  • Tested the effect of washing after pretreatment on the efficacy of food grade enzymes
  • Performed a pretreatment to mimic pilot scale autohydrolysis (35% consistency, 1” pieces of hemp, 190 ℃, 120 min)

LOOKING FORWARD

  • Lab is closed for a holiday week
  • Moving forward with the lease for 270 Hunter Rd. in Grimsby
