Niche Exports Industrial Hemp Extraction Services
Turning the industrial hemp biomass into a shelf stable product is key in the manufacturing process.
Niche Exports understands that Extraction Solutions are not efficient when assembled from multiple sub systems, each from a different vendor and industry. The product offering and extraction solutions that Niche Exports provides is complete, turnkey, and hands off. This means that the customer does not interact with the product at different stages of the extraction process which can result in reduced efficiencies, compromised quality, increased labor, and potential safety risks. The Niche Exports Extraction Solution is a fully automated process from plant to oil that is tuned to match the overall throughput specifications of the system.
CRYO-ETHANOL INDUSTRIAL HEMP EXTRACTION
The Niche Exports Extraction Mobile unit is our large throughput, full processing system on a mobile platform capable of taking down acreage directly at the farm. This system is designed to process up to 15k lbs in a 12 hour period and can run continuously to process over 13 tons of biomass per day. Being able to deploy an extraction solution of this size mitigates the logistical challenge of transporting biomass to extraction facilities. Unlike other large throughput systems on the market today, Niche Exports Extraction Mobile unit processes high throughput while maintaining ultra low temp solvent temperature, bypassing the need for Winterization. This system includes complete filtration and post process evaporation technology to yield true full spectrum crude oil and/or distillate final product. Utilizing our industry partner who specializes in cascade chilling technology, Niche Exports Extraction Mobile unit provides a complete, turn-key extraction system capable of fully automating the extraction process at scale directly at the harvest location.
By controlling and maintaining solvent temperature during the extraction process between temperatures of -50 °? to -100 °?, it is possible to bypass the extensive and time-consuming step of Winterization as many unwanted constituents are not extracted such as Chlorophyll, fats, and lipids. Maintaining solvent temperature is critical during the entire time the solvent is in contact with the biomass and many systems on the market today lack the ability to control and maintain temperature as thermal transients will cause temperature drift if a closed loop control methodology in not utilized. By using chilling technologies such as cascade chillers and/or Liquid Nitrogen fluid with closed loop solvent flow controlled via tuned PID loops, Niche Exports proprietary control methodology maintains solvent temperature to +/- 1 °? of the set point during the extraction routine.
Post extraction filtration is critical to remove particulates and other biomass constituents that can contaminate the miscella and affect the final product. Niche Exports utilizes a combination of fine mesh filtration to remove coarse particulates, diatomaceous earth filtration to remove any small amounts of entrained constituents and fine particulates, and final carbon filtration for color remediation and to ensure an ultra pure final product.
Solvent evaporation, recovery, oil consistency, and final product goals are all factors that influence an evaporation and recovery system. Niche Exports has extensive knowledge designing, manufacturing, and utilizing evaporation and oil post processing systems such as falling film evaporators (FFE), wiped film evaporators, roto-vaps and vacuum ovens. This step in the extraction process is typically the bottleneck of the process as each processing sub-step is labor and/or time intensive. If an FFE solution is utilized, the final product is typically a concentrated mixture of solvent and oil that must be post processed in a roto-vap to remove the majority of the solvent in the mixture, transported to trays in a vacuum oven where a lengthy final solvent evaporation step is used to remove any residual solvent (this can take up to 12 hours), and then transported to final packaging (labor intensive) or moved to final decarboxylation processing prior to final packaging. From this step, the “crude” can be either used as-is or post processed to create distillate, isolate or other refined products.
Niche Exports fully contained evaporation solution automates the evaporation and oil processing steps, eliminating intermediate transfer and processing, to create true full spectrum crude final product, decarboxylation, and / or distillate. By utilizing our proprietary wiped film technology with closed loop temperature and flow control and automated routines, complete control over final product states can be configured and run. This hands-off approach to final processing increases yield as no product is lost during intermediate transfer, reduces labor resources, and increases overall process efficiency and throughput.

Cryo-Ethanol Extraction Method
Niche Exports is pleased to offer extraction services to farmers and owner of biomass who wish to preserve the CBD in their hemp and to reduce storage requirements. By extracting the CBD from the hemp plant, this valuable crop is converted to a more shelf-stable product that requires a fraction of the storage space required to store biomass. Located in Arizona, Niche Exports provides CRYO-ETHANOL extraction services on a first come, first served basis.
Description of Services:
Extraction of biomass to full spectrum crude oil and / or distillate final product using CRYO-ETHANOL as a solvent. CRYO-ETHANOL extraction remains a highly efficient means of extracting maximum CBD content from biomass.
Full spectrum crude oil and / or distillate final product Produced
As produced straight from extraction process without further processing (winterized full spectrum crude oil and / or distillate final product).
Expected to be 95% or greater of CBD content of biomass input.
Fee for Services
$20/pound of biomass received. 5% due within three days of signing, 20% upon receipt of biomass, balance due at time of completion of extraction service.
Available upon request and availability.
Additional Payment Terms
May be available.
Niche Exports is an industrial scale producer of THC-free full spectrum CBD Oil, broad-spectrum CBD Isolate, and water-soluble CBD. Our CBD is derived from American-grown industrial hemp. We utilize a proprietary purification technology that allows products with up to 80% concentration of CBD without THC. We provide high purity broad spectrum CBD isolate, and THC-free full spectrum CBD oil of any potency. All of our products are third party tested to be free of pesticides, solvent residues, and heavy metals.We offer consulting, financing, joint venture and/or partnerships on everything you need from seed to sale. We also can fulfill large contracts >100 kg/mo.
We partner with farms, universities, agricultural departments, and regenerative permaculture agencies to accelerate and legitimize the research and development arms of the legal hemp industry.
Sustainable agriculture is our passion and our founding team is comprised of multiple generations of successful commercial farmers who understand the importance of taking care of the earth.
We’ve acquired and developed a bona fide line of industrial hemp and CBD-rich hemp strains. Do you need clones? We have them!
From land acquisition to registering your legal hemp farm, we have extensive experience in navigating hemp farm start-up and legislation.
We’ve spent years cultivating relationships with large buyers to ensure that when we plant a farm that we have a reputable buyer to sell the product too!
Hundreds of local companies have been forced to import hemp seed from Canada and China until now. We focus on helping communities localize industrial hemp production to cut down on global pollution. Hemp farmers across America have recognized a significant need for harvesting and production equipment that can withstand and harness the power of the mighty hemp plant. Through our experience, we’ve gained a keen understanding of how to plant and harvest hemp, and how to produce many viable commodities. The hemp plant is said to have over 25,000 uses with some estimates even higher showing promise in being a successful commercial crop for years to come.
Niche Exports would like to thank all of the farmers who are willing to step outside their comfort zone to explore the possibilities of industrial hemp. It is with your help that we lay a solid foundation this newly restored, highly versatile crop that is great for your land and great for the planet. We offer consulting, financing, joint venture and/or partnerships on everything you need from seed to sale.
