Air Products has today announced a collaboration with a professor at the University of Virginia on research studying the benefits of cryogenic freezing on cannabinoids found in industrial hemp from the time of harvest through extraction and final processing.
As part of the research, Dr. Bryan Berger, Associate Professor of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Virginia, will work closely with Air Products’ cryogenic freezing technology lab to study the effects of using liquid cryogens such as liquid nitrogen on the quantification, chemical composition and profiles of cannabinoids found in hemp used in industrial and medical applications.
“We believe this research will demonstrate the many benefits cryogenic freezing can have for the industrial hemp industry,” said Michael Himes, of Air Products’ Merchant Research and Development.
“Our experience and advanced technology have provided game-changing solutions for those in the biotech and food industries, and we look forward to collaborating with those in the industrial hemp industry to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of their processes.”
