Extraction Plant Build Project
Structure in Place
Essential Queensland is currently in the building stage of their Extraction Plant. This plant will allow us to produce approx 8000 tonne of pine chemicals a year.
The photos you see are our team getting the process platforms in place, over 450 tonne of concrete has been poured in the ground, not including steel, to support our factory that will be placed on the pads.
Our platform is 90% completed with minor changes once our equipment arrives.
Terpenes Extraction Plant
The first plant that was placed on Essential Queensland's site was the Pilot Plant. We extracted terpenes from it, and exported our product to our customers.
We were able to maximise revenues on our woodchip that we processed.
This plant has been decommissioned to enable room for our new extraction plant that extracts rosin and terpenes.
