About Bio-Extraction Inc.

The global demand for ever higher food value from agriculture is growing at an unprecedented pace, driven by population growth and economic growth. At the same time, food supply constraints are increasing, due to urban development of arable land, alternate uses of crops for bio-fuel and other industrial purposes, and many crops having already maximized yields. The result is an alarming imbalance between over-demand and under-supply.

BioExx owns patented technology which allows for much lower temperatures to be used for the extraction of active ingredients and oils from biomass. This makes BioExx particularly well suited to process oilseed crops in a manner that allows for the production of much higher value additives to the food chain, in the form of higher yields of high value proteins which tend to be temperature sensitive. While forming just a small, but very valuable part of the solution to prominent global agricultural problems, BioExx has a mandate to rapidly grow the company through the construction and operation of extraction facilities around the world - and because of its much lower energy requirements, to do so in a very environmentally responsible manner.

BioExx recently completed an $11 million financing to construct its first commercial processing facility that will process 40,000 metric tonnes annually to produce both Canola Oil and a range of Protein Concentrate products. Production is expected to commence within the next year.
