Innovative Cannabis Extraction

Innovative cannabis extraction with Niccolo Aieta Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Spherex. Niccolo is the founder and CTO of Spherex, an innovative cannabis extraction company based in Denver, Colorado. He is a chemical engineer and received his Ph.D. at the Colorado School of Mines researching hydrogen fuel cell technology. After founding Spherex in 2015, Niccolo grew the company as an industrial-scale CO2 cannabis refinement operator built on two founding principles: efficiency and scale. When Spherex entered the market place, the highest efficiency using supercritical CO2 was roughly 50%.

Within one year of the company’s founding, Spherex’ scientific team achieved extraction efficiencies of over 95%. Spherex then combined that efficiency with ramped-up processing capacity to refine up to 120 pounds of raw cannabis per day, applying industrial engineering and lean manufacturing principles. As CTO of Spherex, I oversee all operational and technical aspects of the business. Most days, he can be found reviewing the supercritical fluid extraction operations, in the lab creating new products, training employees, and working closely with partners planning the company’s next stage of growth. The SPHEREX Process brings a team of dedicated scientists and advanced CO2 technology to create shelf ready THC and CBD products.
