ST. LOUIS, Sept. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Hybrid Tech, a long-standing process and design engineering leader in the cannabis and hemp industries, is proud to announce the launch of their new Lab Planning & Processing Division led by internationally recognized scientific expert, John MacKay, Ph.D.
Dr. MacKay is highly respected in the cannabis space as an expert in extraction and purification techniques. He is looking forward to continuing his work innovating in cannabis – “I am incredibly proud to be leading this effort with such an outstanding team. We fundamentally believe that ethnobotany and pharmacognosy (the study of drugs derived from natural sources) benefit from implementing good manufacturing practices throughout the extraction of “botanical drug substancesi” from plants. I am excited to aid in developing technology and processes that will accelerate providing the highest quality products to those whom most need it.”
The new division is composed of PhD chemists as well as engineers from every discipline, including chemical, mechanical, structural, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. This multi-disciplinary professional team enables Hybrid Tech to provide a holistic approach to complex systems. “Combined with years of extensive industry experience, we are now able to offer truly turnkey solutions for the cannabis and hemp space.
