The majority of cannabis businesses possess no outlet for byproduct disposal. Cannabis byproducts can be safely incinerated reducing them to just 3% of their original volume as harmless ash. Our range of models mean this could be done on-site at your farm or at a centralised facility specifically design to process cannabis (hemp) waste.
The by-product of incineration is energy - this energy can be converted into hot air for heating or hot water for cleaning/washing. In certain circumstances you could even generate electricity from your waste.

As more and more countries are legalising marijuana, there is a new waste challenge to deal with. Large amounts of organic compounds are left as waste from this farming practice.
Portable waste incineration is made easy when you are using a carefully designed solution that has been engineered specifically to be moved around. Many competing systems require lengthy de-commissioning and re-commissioning between operating sites.
The modified design for 2017 incorporates a number of features to enhance its usage as a mobile waste solution. The system now has an additional primary burner* to increase performance and flexibility. New insulation and exterior shell to increase longevity and appearance. The control panel can also been housed into the door frame to improve rigidity and access.
*dependent on model purchased.
The transportation and disposal of cannabis waste is specialized and requires special licensing and compliance. You must meet all these regulatory requirements while adhering to local environmental standards.
In some states and countries, failure to meet marijuana waste disposal requirements can lead to monetary fines up to $15,000 and/or cancellation of license.
Although this is an ever changing list as more countries perceive additional health related benefits to the consumption of cannabis, there is still many areas where it is illegal to grow or cultivate BUT legal to possess or consume. Belows list is up to date as of June 2017 of countries where cultivation (growing) is acceptable under certain conditions.

The growing of 'Marijuana' or Cannabis on a commercial scale creates large volumes of waste plant matter. Most countries and states require this is ground up and mixed prior to destruction. In the case of incineration this mix should be approx 50/50 with other non-compostable waste (such as cardboard, paper and plastics). Cannabis (hemp) waste is typically categorised as:
* - Any plant waste processed with solvents is classed as hazardous waste and must therefore be disposed of through a licensed landfill or better still through incineration.
