Canola crushing plant turns 10 tons of locally grown seeds to oil and meal

OROVILLE – Carbon Cycle Crush proved it can be done as 10 tons of locally grown canola seed from the Havillah area was pressed into oil and meal before invited guests last Monday.

The crushing took place following a luncheon put on by the company which has built its plant in the old Oro Fruit warehouse on Appleway Ave. The CCC’s goal is to crush 50 tons of seed a day in three shifts, 24/7. To start the company will be mostly crushing imported Canadian-grown seed from the prairies of Alberta and Saskatchewan, but to crush more locally-grown seed like Jim Bunch’s that was being crushed that day is also a goal.

Prior to the start up of the seed press, an emotional Carbon Cycle Crush vice-president Ryan Skinner thanked several people for their help in getting the plant to this point. Then company president Tim King, a former employee of the USDA made a presentation of the company’s goals, including replicating similar plants in several locations throughout the state and perhaps Canada.
