City Approval of Conditional Use Permits for Next Green Wave’s Extraction and Innovation Facility
Next Green Wave Receives City Council Approval To Move Forward With Second Facility
Vancouver, British Columbia – February 27, 2019 – Next Green Wave Holdings Inc. (CSE:NGW) (OTCQB:NXGWF) (“Next Green Wave” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that it has been granted Conditional Use Permits (CUP’s) for nursery and both non-volatile and volatile extraction operations for its 3,240 ft² indoor facility (Site ‘C’) by the City of Coalinga, CA. The Company has also received approval for the facility site design allowing for construction preparations to commence.
Obtaining this latest nursery CUP will enable Next Green Wave to accelerate its seed and seedling production program (including clones) for its own yield, as well as sale to licensed commercial growers and resellers. Furthermore, the facility will help expedite innovative tissue culture research and the development of new high-quality cannabis strains using Intrexon’s (NASDAQ:XON) Botticelli™ platform. Successfully completing this research project will allow Next Green Wave to produce and sell seeds or clones that have standardized plant attributes and are pathogen and pesticide free, thus providing a premium, unique product to the cannabis industry.
We would like to thank the City of Coalinga, its Council members and the Planning Commission for their continued support,
stated Leigh Hughes, CEO of Next Green Wave.
Once regulatory approval and occupancy is granted, this facility has an immediate impact on our revenues and our ability to bring Intrexon Corporation into our nursery research and innovation project. This is a pivotal moment for Next Green Wave as we actuate our second facility.
Next Green Wave is licensed for both volatile and non-volatile extraction on its 35,000 ft² facility (Site ‘A’) and now has obtained a CUP for volatile and non-volatile extraction on Site C. Non-volatile extraction permits use of C02, ethanol, water and other methods that are not volatile during the extraction procedure. Manufacturing of products such as edibles, topical products, infusion, packaging, and labelling will be vital to developing our high-quality brands and the ability of providing tolling services to other cannabis companies not licensed to process their own biomass material or finished products.
Site C will undergo construction to accommodate the extraction equipment, nursery vegetative grow rooms, and research and development area. The construction period is estimated to be completed within 6-8 weeks before final occupancy approval can be issued by the City of Coalinga.
