Pesticide Remediation


the problem we had with our air handlers was bifenthrin. probably came with PBO. too, but it wasn’t on ODA’s radar at the time, so we wouldn’t have failed for it. was almost 2 years between last documented use & first 3rd party test.

PBO seems to be used not as a pesitcide, but as an “enhancer” in some pyrethrin/permethrin formulations. not sure how long it sticks around, but boy howdy I can tell you that bifenthrin lasts forever!


2 year listed shelf life means it’ll stay around for a long while…


So do you have a method (your willing to share) to remove this pesticide or not? All of that drama is sure interesting but doesn’t have to do much with the chemistry involved with pesticide removal. Looks like @Werdnao63 still has an issue that no one can solve. If what you say is true this issue isn’t going anywhere and is serious. If your not personally willing to solve the problem due to safety concerns it would be beneficial to the community if you could help others solve it.


You think I am freely going to release IP I have solely developed over the last 6 months?? :rofl: You my friend, definitely dont know how business works.

First $250K (OBO) gets it…

And I’m not playing, I have 3 different solvent combinations that will remove it, all using the same media.

Tests of my project are from Cannalysis, in CA. Results are accurate, as they do not fake their results at all.


So you have 3 different procedures you developed in the last six months but you have no available evidence for them and no willingness to share information with others. You have claimed it is “not cost effective AT ALL” yet want $250K for the information. Cool. Thanks for the reply.


Same procedures using 3 different solvent systems, all with different price points, leading to the same result.

PBO, pyrethrin, and permethrin remediated oil.

Same method/processes takes out a large range of other organo-phosphate pesticides as well.


Sounds interesting. I’m sure larger companies with acres of cannabis are using industrial pesticides and will need to be removed post extraction. Its a shame you stopped posting about your research entirely once you found out it was worth something. There is tons of information on this website that people like Future and Photon could of remained quiet about and earned a lot of money but they decided to help others instead. To me that is why they are such big names on this website and in this industry.


Well, alot of these other guys didn’t have to invest into ~$60k machines, and run R&D in house for months on end to develop specific IP. Magsil/florisil and bleaching clay’s were already commonly used in other oil processing industries.

My method is industry specific, and is borderline biopharmaceutical based research.


Bifen can be removed by targeting the CL molecule. PBO target is all the O links.


Heptane and MagSil has great possibility to remove some PBO. You would probably want to stick to alkaline absorbents for that pesticide.


Let me know how much your IP is worth when you scale up and your solvent disposal becomes cost prohibitive. ;]


@ the guy using the biotage

…which are useless for large scale.


FYI. I’m dropping key knowledge in that previous post.


if it didn’t fail terribly bad you can mix some known good clean stuff with it to “re-mediate” it.


The solution to pollution is dilution?

not when you miss the bar by a couple or three orders of magnitude.

I hear that some of the stuff is failing is worse than that…


I’m sure Brass Knuckles tried making a cart that was 80% MCT to fix the heat, lol.


Right, the dilution solution is a joke, what an easy way to ruin your reputation. Dirty material should all be quarantined and disposed of right from the beginning, end of story…


It is a joke, and it is the OLCC/OHA’s only solution…but what I meant was mix the dirty distillate with known clean distillate to get your action levels below the failure limit on the entire lot as a whole.


That is exactly the OHA’s stance - destroy it all. They could even care less if you can remove the pesticides from a sample entirely and make it clean… As far as that are concerned they should not be there in the first place.
