I keep reading threads where people lament the permitting requirements and regulations to work with volatile solvents. Do those concerns kick in when you start processing over a certain number of gallons? I know it will vary by state but what are some rules of thumb?
I think that only applies when you have employees, I’d just get some undocumented immigrants to do the work at night when the regulator is asleep.
If you want any amount of volatile solvent in your facility (beyond like a 20# propane tank) you need a volatile solvent permit
get yourself a copy of the NFPA rules
they even have a section for cannabis
Got it. Thanks. From the attached .pdf it also shows the following as relevant related to this type of equipment…
NFPA 1 CH 38
NFPA CH 38 (MARIJUANA PROCESSING OR EXTRACTION FACILITIES)
NFPA 30 (ETHANOL AND COMPUSTIBLE LIQUIDS CODE)
ASME BOILER AND PRESSURE VESSEL CODE
FOR CALIFORNIA AB-2679
UL, ETL, OSHA APPROVED —NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED TESTING LABS
LPG-CO2-Extraction-Equipment.pdf (4.6 MB)
There is the IBC. Occasionally you find someone deferring to it. The file is too large to upload here, but it’s easy to find.
If I get a second I’ll upload chapters 7-9 only. That’s the relevant part for you question.
the talk that went with that slide show would be nice…
