They discuss "supercritical" extractions in which 70-80% of the plant oils will come out on the first run, and then if you want the remaining 20-30%, you have to run the machine twice as long.. and it becomes a more complex decision of tradeoffs. If your supply is limited and expensive, it's probably worth doubling the processing time and paying the extra cost for the bonus 20-30%. But I think another key takeaway here is Abattis' bit about high production capabilities. Most manufacturers have machines capable of generating 15-30 grams of plant oils per hour. Eden Labs boasts an "advanced system" that can achieve 400 grams per hour. While Abattis teases at a future facility that may be able to produce 5000 Kg a day.. and being conservative, dividing that by 24 hours a day (perhaps ATTBF actually had a 8-12 hour day in mind when they calculated this?) is about 200,000 grams per hour.. all at a reasonable cost. What's missing here is the amount of Raybot machines and initial capital necessary to produce that kind of output. At least I'm starting to see the pieces fitting together and how they can start posting positive numbers in the "revenue" column..
