Technology for Botanical Extraction Using Supercritical CO2

Infinity deploys some of the most cutting-edge technology on their machine and system design. Infinity uses First Principle design philosophy.

First principles involves boiling down problems to basic elements and then coming up with unique solutions. Be wary of ideas that you inherit, since they are already laden with problems and barriers. Old ideas set a boundary around creativity. That distinction is the difference between continuous improvement and first principles.

First principles means that you abandon allegiance around first forms, and put the function front and center. This strategy was deployed by Nikola Tesla, and currently used by Elon Musk.

For botanical extraction, the goal is to build a machine that is durable, processes material quickly, efficiently, and makes a profit.

We designed a system that does not require a noisy air compressor, hence our system is completely silent.

Best of all, you can bottle Full Spectrum Oil straight from the machine.

Eco Extraction using Hydrodynamic Cavitation and Water

The challenges with legacy extraction technologies results in long processing times, poor quality product (like ethanol extraction), operator error, and large operating expenses.

Since 2015 Infinity has been experimenting with a push-button processor which can perform an extraction instantaneously.

The result of those efforts have focussed on aqueous extraction. The concept of using pure water to extract oil from plants has been around for centuries using steam distillation, which is great for recovering terpenes, but doesn't perform well for Full Spectrum Oil extraction.

Using sonochemistry (hydrodynamic cavitation) has been deployed with some small scale success using acoustics (ultrasonic bath), but has never scaled up well for large processing.

Using the SDR (Spinning Disc Reactor) shortens reaction time to just under a second using mechanically rotating discs. What is unique about this process is that you can perform multiple functions with the same technology including extraction, filtration, separation, and flow all using spinning water.

qr codes provide quick web access
Using QR codes is good for machines, pdf, and websites for quick access to sites.

New Web Site Format

This website will be the first test of our new Millenium Web Engine, which is based on using a Filemaker (Claris) database backbone. The primary goal is to build a website using semantics specifically referenced by Google (metatags and proper page building), so that their search spiders and page ranking derive better results.

Part of this initiative is building a business around .pdf documents and QR codes, so that customers can easily reference website pages for additional information, including order products and services.

The strategy is function over form. Using First Principles, we are building a Web Engine that provides useful information quickly, and without a lot of clutter which is found in most pretty websites (i.e. WordPress). Building a website rich in .pdf and QR codes provides the view with a better and faster experience. Making the entire process into a database and AI, makes it even better. You control the website and the data (not WordPress). It's more durable, and always backed up on your local computer.

WordPress does not do daily backups, as claimed. When your business depends on your website, you need to take control of its foundation.

Page Format

This website is rendered for standard USA printing. Margins are set for 8.5 inch printing. QR codes are for active sites and links. The goal of this functionality is for ease in saving to PDF or printing directly as a brochure.

The QR code printed out on each page allows easy access via most smart phones to directly link the website with a simple scan via the phone (most phones now scan QR code under the photo setting, and then take you to the website). This is further extended to equipment businesses where QR code labels can be placed directly on a machine or part for reference and reordering.

Essentially, the QR code and website become a E commerce system, all built into one.

Gold Mining Electronic Wastes with Supercritical CO2

Precious metals including copper, gold, and palladium can be dissolved in supercritical CO2 by oxidation. This supercritical fluid dissolution technique provides a dry method for recovering precious metals from abandoned electronics and spent catalysts with minimum waste generation.

Currently, increasing amounts of end-of-life (EoL) electronic products are being generated due to their reduced life spans and the unavailability of suitable recycling technologies. In particular, waste printed circuit boards (PCBs) have become of global concern with regard to environmental issues because of their high metal and toxic material contents, which are pollutants.

Hydrometallurgy is a successful technique used worldwide for the recovery of precious metals (especially gold and silver) from ores, concentrates, and waste materials. It is generally preferred over other methods because it can offer high recovery rates at a relatively low cost.

Supercritical fluids, especially those based on inert substances, are considered as clean solvents, free from the environmental concerns of disposal, handling and toxicity associated with organic solvents. A pure supercritical fluid is a substance above its critical temperature and pressure.

Technological development and intensive marketing support the growth in demand for electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), for which printed circuit boards (PCBs) are vital components.

Vortex Extraction of Oil from Botanicals

Infinity has experimented with many technologies which perform cell lysis. One of those is the fascinating vortex tube. It has traditionally used for pressuried air to produce spot cooling and heat, along with separation functions in the oil and gas industry. The vortex converts pressure into rotational energy (over 1,000 g force) which effectively becomes a centrifuge liquids (air, water, oil, etc.). The high g forces can result in cell lysis, and the rotational element can separate resulting extract.

Pro Tips and Consulting Services From Brook at Green County Hemp

Fee based support is available from these groups who own Infinity Supercritical extraction systems and use them on a weekly basis to produce product that they sell for a profit.

Green County Hemp:
Owns (2) 10L Systems | Specializes in hemp and hemp extract products | Consulting Services: Start-up, training, optimization, marketing, on-site available, post-processing, CO2 pump | (Wisconsin, Midwest, online support).

Pro Tips from Brook (updated on April 14, 2021):

Brook says that pump cooling is not required if the chiller is run closer to 40F, and the liquid CO2 reservoir is at a higher pressure (near 700 psi). Also said that matching the Collection Vessel (CC) closer to reservoir pressure resulted in beautiful quality honey looking oil extract. Brook runs for 2-3 hours and says running longer than that does not extract any appreciable amount of extract (i.e. waste of time for hemp).

Using Supercritical CO2 to Kiln Dry Wood

Conventional kiln drying of wood operates by the evaporation of water at elevated temperature. In the initial stage of drying, mobile water in the wood cell lumen evaporates. More slowly, water bound in the wood cell walls evaporates, requiring the breaking of hydrogen bonds between water molecules and cellulose and hemicellulose polymers in the cell wall. An alternative for wood kiln drying is a patented process for green wood dewatering through the molecular interaction of supercritical carbon dioxide with water of wood cell sap. When the system pressure is reduced to below the critical point, phase change from supercritical fluid to gas occurs with a consequent large change in CO2 volume. This results in the efficient, rapid, mechanical expulsion of liquid sap from wood.

A potential advantage of applying the green wood dewatering process described above to produce wood material with moisture content at the fibre saturation point and with no resulting distortion, shrinkage, or discolouration is to use the dry wood output from this process as either a finished product in itself (as in the example of eucalypt wood), or as an intermediate towards wood modification or biocide treatment where, as for the triazoles, the modifying agent or biocide is soluble in supercritical carbon dioxide.

The ability to carry out two key steps in the manufacture of dry, durable wood materials and products at a single site, in one factory where the equipment and machinery could be used for both drying and molecular-modifying steps, would potentially eliminate the multiple handling of wood at intermediate conventional processing steps.

Trimethyl borate and some boratranes (tricyclic borate esters) are also soluble in supercritical carbon dioxide, making these potential compounds for the modification of dewatered wood using supercritical carbon dioxide as the biocide delivery solvent for the manufacture of biologically durable, quality wood products.

Dewatering green sapwood derived from plantation-grown radiata pine and several other softwood and hardwood timber species, using carbon dioxide cycled between the supercritical fluid and gas phase, has proven to be an efficient process for rapidly reducing wood moisture content from as much as 200 percent (based on dry weight) to 40 percent (or below, depending on the anatomical structure of the wood). Dewatering has the added benefit of zero volatile emission compared to kiln drying, with all of the sap chemicals being captured in the exudate, which in turn provides a source of numerous chemicals with potential high value to be obtained from them. While the dewatering process has merit for producing dry timber as an industrial product per se, a significant benefit for wood product manufacture may be the ability to sequentially dewater green wood and then undertake wood material modification. For example, biocide molecules dissolved in supercritical carbon dioxide could be introduced in situ, to impart wood product bio-durability without the need to physically handle the wood material.

Producing Alcohol from Liquid CO2

Infinity has already built lots of closed-loop supercritical CO2 systems, and experimented with CO2 cavitation to make a one-moving-part liquid CO2 pump.

Infinity currently sells a cart-mounted portable on-demand supercritical CO2 phase change system for $150,000 which can be used for the experiments listed below, along with many others. It is a cart which was designed to fit through any standard door, hallway, or elevator and has heaving duty casters for mobility.

We are currently looking for funding to develop the following:

1. On-Demand CO2 to Alcohol: Using our closed-loop liquid CO2 phase change system, adding Nafion in the process to make alcohol. Inputs: Liquid CO2, water, and electricity. About 3-4 kW to make a liter of alcohol (from lab experiments).

2. CO2 to Alcohol with In-Situ Power Generation: Using our closed-loop supercritical CO2 phase change system, produce the power via miniature CO2 turbine generator of static electricity generator (SEG) to power the conversion via Nafion.

3. Spin-To-Liquid (STL): A novel one-step approach to producing alcohol from liquid CO2 using a cavitation device with Nafion. This is a one-moving-part device employing sonochemistry with inputs of water and liquid CO2. Electricity is produced in-situ. Shaft rotation is required to spin the device (this can be done via a electric motor, pressure expanding turbine, or other shaft rotation such as a wind turbine).

You can further our efforts by buying our $150,000 systems (which we build - and have four in stock) or by considering an investment to fund our development.

Teaser: Why was Nikola Tesla so fascinated with static electricity and spinning discs ? Our guess is that he had already found the worlds best battery - water. The Tesla turbine (while a fascinating pump) was actually a static electricity generator originally designed to charge water. All of his Colorado Springs experiments revolved around static electricity. Power generation and (wireless) transportation was via static electricity.
