ARVADA, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cannabis and hemp extraction technology company Boulder Creek Technologies and Canadian-based engineering, manufacturing and technology company Maratek have entered into an exclusive relationship that will see Maratek manufacture, provide engineering services and scale Boulder Creek Technologies’ Vapor-Static Extraction systems.
Maratek, which has partnered with companies such as Amway, Leef Labs, Veolia, Redecan/HEXO, CR Bard, Kazmira, Procan Labs and Tigercat on their manufacturing processes, will assist Boulder Creek Technologies in bringing its groundbreaking, solventless Vapor-Static Extraction to market by taking on the construction and assembly elements of the systems, as well as engineering. This new botanical extraction technology was invented by Boulder Creek Technologies Co-Founder Steve Bonde and offers a sustainable and safe way to extract botanicals with low operating costs thanks to its efficient single-operator model for high-volume biomass processing.
“With Maratek we have found a partner that has this same passion for the environment and botanical medicine, along with its strength and decades of experience in industrial system design, engineering, and manufacturing,” said Boulder Creek Technologies CEO Rick Bonde. “They are the final piece in Vapor-Static’s journey to market.”
Though Vapor-Static Extraction was created by Boulder Creek Technologies, Maratek is working collaboratively to help increase its presence in the industry. Currently, work is underway manufacturing multiple next-generation, large-scale Vapor-Static systems capable of processing up to 1,000 pounds of biomass per day, in addition to system augmentations for existing clients.
The formal relationship between the two companies began in May 2021, but work accelerated after the teams saw the interest in Vapor-Static Extraction at MJBizCon. Boulder Creek Technologies and Maratek began finalizing the partnership details in March during the 2022 NoCo Hemp Expo.
“We are extremely excited to be partnering with Boulder Creek Technologies in developing and manufacturing the Vapor static technology,” said Kyle Georges, Vice President of Sales Business Development at Maratek. “This is a very disruptive technology that will change the extraction technology landscape not only for cannabis hemp, but all botanicals.”
The working relationship has also spurred new business for Boulder Creek Technologies, with Maratek introducing Vapor-Static Extraction to hemp raw material company Red Mesa Science & Refining. “Not many companies are all-encompassing and can help clients tailor systems in their specific processes and facilities,” said Bonde. “Maratek’s experience isn’t one-dimensional, the team has experience in highly regulated sectors and we think there’s value in helping us expand into other botanical sectors.”
