Large medical marijuana producer achieves excellent odor control and complies with Health Canada regulations.
Located in Ontario, Canada, this customer is licensed under the Canadian “Medical Marijuana for Medical Purposes” regulations.
The company is a key player in the industry and operates one of the largest facilities in Canada, with over 150,000 square feet of space licensed for medical marijuana production.
The process of growing cannabis plants produces a strong smell, especially when plants are bigger or in the ﬂowering stage. Health Canada recommends proper ventilation and the use of appropriate filtration systems in order to prevent the escape of pollen, other particles and odors. To comply with industry regulations, the customer required the installation of high-quality particle and molecular filtration.
The customer contacted Camfil and discussed their application with our molecular filtration experts. After reviewing the odor control needs, Camfil presented a proposal that included the installation of pre-filters, XH Absolute® HEPA filters and CamCarb® CG Cylinders. Both the 24-inch-long plastic cylinders and the appropriate grade of activated carbon represent critical components of the effective odor control solution. Camfil also made recommendations for temperature and relative humidity in order to achieve optimal molecular filtration performance.
Several systems for odor control at the medical marijuana plant were installed across the plant. The end user informed Camfil that cannabis odors are effectively controlled and they haven’t received complaints from neighbors in over two years. Camfil also provided the end user with laboratory services for monitoring the condition of the molecular filtration media and for estimating the remaining lifetime of the CamCarb® CG cylinders. The customer expressed their satisfaction and the desire to contact Camfil for future facility expansions.
The combination of XH Absolute® HEPA filters and CamCarb® CG Cylinders prevents the escape of other particles, pollens and odours.
