Blessed Extracts – Canabis Manufacturing, Testing, Research & Development AQ/GHG Analysis
Raney prepared an AQ/GHG Analysis for the Blesses Extract project, a 10,300 square-foot office, cannabis extraction, and manufacturing facility, which was integrated into the analysis of the long-term effects of the proposed cannabis extraction and manufacturing discussed in the IS/MND.
The Blessed Extract project consists of the operation of an approximately 4,800 square-foot (s.f.) office, cannabis extraction, and manufacturing facility and laboratory within an existing building with plans to expand to approximately 10,300 s.f. within one to two years, or to sublet the additional space to another manufacturer or manufacturers. The laboratory plans to extract cannabis chemicals using both butane and CO2 extraction. The facility will require fume hoods for exhaust, lab benches, bio-matter disposal and chemical storage, as well as a Class 1, Division 1, ignition/spark proof extraction area for butane extraction. Raney, under contract with the City of Davis, prepared an Initial Study to analyze the effects of the proposed project. Raney’s air quality team prepared an air quality impact and greenhouse gas emissions analysis to analyze the long-term effects of the proposed cannabis extraction and manufacturing. The air quality and greenhouse gas technical analysis was prepared consistent with the requirements of the Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District (YSAQMD), the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and the City of Davis.
