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.

Hemp Investor and Business Strategy: Extract, Bottle, and Sell Direct

Hemp Investor and Business Strategy: Extract, Bottle, and Sell Direct

Starting a Hemp Extraction Business

With the incessant demand for consumer grade hemp rich products, along with isolate for product infusion, there is a bottleneck between harvest and concentrate extraction. This is because most farmers don’t have funding or capabilities to perform extraction. Third party extractors, termed toll processors, often demand a 50 percent toll for their services. Unfortunately, there aren’t many processors available and many are unreliable.

Of the extraction systems available on the market, they are high-priced, legacy-based systems that perform inefficiently, and effectively cause a bottleneck in processing.

Infinity Supercritical recognized these inherency’s in 2015, and established a line of technologically advanced extraction systems.

Why Now ?

Timing: The market has a high demand for CB D rich hemp products.

Opportunity for this market exists as processors scramble to meet demand, with legacy extraction systems. Unfortunately, ethanol extraction falls short with a inferior product that doesn’t have good terpene retention.

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.

Using Supercritical CO2 for mining electronic wastes including gold, lithium, and other precious metals.

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.

CO2 Cavitation Device Used for Pumping and Sonochemistry Experiments

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.

Supercritical CO2 to treat Nafion for Direct Methanol Fuel Cells

Supercritical carbon dioxide treatment was used to enhance performance of NR212. The microstructure of NR212 membranes was reorganized after the Sc-CO2 treatment. The treated NR212 membranes showed higher proton conductivity than Nafion 117. The treated NR212 membranes showed lower methanol permeability than Nafion 117. Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (DMFC) performance of the treated NR212 membranes was better than Nafion 117 (2012). The Nafion-grafted-polystyrene sulfonic acid (N-g-pssa) exhibits higher ion conductivity and lower methanol permeability than that of Nafion 115. The N-g-pssa membranes are tested as electrolytes in a direct methanol fuel cell. Compared with the as-received NR212 membranes, all the Sc-CO2 treated NR212 membranes show higher proton conductivity and better capacity of barrier to methanol crossover. From Fenton test, it can be found that the Sc-CO2 treated NR212 membranes have better chemical stability than that of NR212 membranes. Therefore, NR212 membranes treated by the Sc-CO2 method may be promising candidate electrolytes for DMFC applications (2020).

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 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.
