Thank you very much. So so today we're going to talk about something that I could easily put you to sleep. 00:12 It's important information, but I can try to keep it as exciting as possible. But I am an engineer. So keep that in mind. So 00:21 today we're going to be talking about regulatory considerations for extraction operations. My expertise our company does mechanical electrical 00:31 Plumbing engineering and I'm a professional engineer license in mechanical engineering so my background was all 00:39

has always been an HVAC heating ventilation air conditioning within that realm does come any any sort of 00:49 ventilation comes into that and extraction facilities have a great deal of ventilation requirements. So that was kind of how we 00:59 got into this. We've now employed an electrical engineer or is it a lot that goes into the electrical component. And I'm even the the plumbing 01:08 components when you're setting up these facilities. So keep in mind that what we're going to talk about is mainly the facility design not the parts 01:17

and pieces of the extraction equipment. However, I I know it's slightly a little bit about that if you have questions and have to talk to you about 01:26 that afterwards so or definitely put you in touch with people that know more than I do. So this is just about 01:35 us where my company is called Colburn engineering were based in Bend, Oregon. We start a charcoal bright and in 01:45 2013 and 2014 with started getting calls for cannabis cultivation. Mainly at that point 01:55
