HempAmericana Adds High-Capacity Solvent Recovery System ahead of Company’s Commercial Distribution Other OTC:HMPQ

NEW YORK, July 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via OTC PR WIRE – HempAmericana, Inc. (OTC: HMPQ) (“HempAmericana” or the “Company”), an emerging leader in the CBD products market, is excited to announce the purchase and imminent delivery of a 100-liter solvent recovery system, the Ecochyll X7 High Speed Evaporator, that represents a 400% increase in evaporative capacity for the Company’s production line technology. The move comes as the Company kicks off its principal commercial distribution operations. “Proper Solvent Recovery is one of the most important keys to increasing margins in CBD production because it not only removes the ethanol from the process prior to distillation, but recovers it for future use,” noted HMPQ CEO, Salvador Rosillo. Management notes that chemical solvents (such as butane, hexane, ethanol, propane, and isopropyl alcohol, all used in cannabis extraction processes) can be prohibitively expensive, making solvent cost a major factor determining long-term viability in the CBD production space. The Company’s investment in a top-tier high-capacity solvent recovery system should pay for itself in the near term and then to positively impact HempAmericana’s m...

Replacing your old thermostat with something digital (that doesn’t look like an LED clock from the ’80s) shouldn’t be hard. But it is. Every manufacturer boasts about the same features—but which product is ultimately best for your household and lifestyle? If you’re looking for something that looks futuristic, the Glas Smart Thermostat is a great first choice. It looks like nothing else on the market and the transparent touchscreen practically disappears when the display is inactive, blending with your walls. It also does the digital thermostat things you’d expect, like keeping schedules and working with an app for programming. And it even has Microsoft Cortana built in, so you can speak to it for changing settings. Plus, Glas has an air quality sensor, something most other smart thermostats lack. Glas can even sense if you’re home or away, so don’t have to ...

Economical to produce, relatively easy to install and widely available, asphalt shingles are today’s most popular

Economical to produce, relatively easy to install and widely available, asphalt shingles are today’s most popular roofing material—not only because they’re less costly than wood, wood shakes, tile, metal or slate, but also because their guaranteed life span pits them favorably against competitors. At least a dozen major U.S. and Canadian building-product manufacturers market asphalt shingles, including GAF, CertainTeed and Owens Corning. Fiberglass shingles are made of a woven fiberglass base mat, covered with a waterproof asphalt coating, and topped with ceramic granules that shield the product from harmful UV rays. Because of the composition of the fiberglass mat, less asphalt is needed to give the shingles their durability and strength. The result is a lighter weight and thinner roofing material. Fiberglass shingles also have a higher fire rating than organic varieties and generally carry a longer warranty. Fiberglass shingles were developed in the 1980s, but have quickly become the roofing material of choice for most homeowners and contractors today. The traditional organic mat-based shingles are made from a recycled layer of felt paper, asphalt-saturated for waterproofing, ...

The first line spoken in Control isn’t a story introduction – it’s a mission statement. Remedy

The first line spoken in Control isn’t a story introduction – it’s a mission statement. Remedy Entertainment has always trodden a shivering line between ordinary and outlandish, taking contemporary settings and distinctly human characters, then throwing them through an unnatural, often supernatural, wringer. Control is a little more bold. Granted, it starts similarly – Jesse Faden visits the headquarters of the mysterious Federal Bureau of Control in search of answers about a childhood trauma. She meets a curious janitor, Ahti, who mistakes her for a job applicant and sends her into the bowels of the building. But then the director of the Bureau mysteriously dies, his magic gun binds itself to Jesse, we learn the building’s under lockdown because of the encroachment of a hostile resonance nicknamed The Hiss, and absolutely everything gets very strange indeed. Remember that short section of Max Payne when he was dosed with high-grade hallucinogens, got stuck in a world-warping nightmare and began realising he was in a video game? That’s the tone of Control, all the time. Sat amidst the nervous bustle of a company on the final stretch of development, I play around 8 h...
