Denver’s Cannabis Odor Ordinance leaves industry scrambling for solutions:
Will other legal marijuana markets follow suit?
DENVER (May 24, 2016) – As Denver City Council passes an odor-control ordinance for commercial marijuana grow facilities and other businesses that release odors in the Mile High City, urban-gro, the product solutions expert for the commercial Cannabis cultivator, offers up a cutting-edge solution: FOGCO odor control system.
“Communities are seeking practical solutions from the Cannabis industry to mitigate the odor associated with flowering Cannabis. The good news is that FOGCO is an easy solution that will keep commercial Cannabis cultivators compliant,” said urban-gro CEO Brad Nattrass. “urban-gro is the preferred provider of FOGCO, a cost-effective system that eliminates the Cannabis smell from grow facilities’ exhaust systems. This makes it easy for cultivators to comply with the new ordinance. FOGCO can be an important component to being a good neighbor.”
By injecting a proprietary blend of all natural and biodegradable ingredients into a high-pressure fog system, FOGCO provides billions of atomized droplets that attach to and eliminate the smell of Cannabis. FOGCO has over 25 years of experience mitigating industrial odor, and this system provides numerous benefits to the Cannabis industry including facilitating licensing and application process approvals; neutralizing odors; and eliminating complaints, violations and fines. The system provides maximum coverage with minimum investment, and is non-toxic with no contamination impact.
The City of Denver’s recent odor-control ordinance is designed to reduce the strong odors produced from businesses such as marijuana grows, pet food factories, asphalt factories, wood preservation companies, oil refining factors and sewage treatment plants. The Colorado Cannabis industry occupies large industrial space in clustered areas around the I-25 and I-70 Junction. Since legalization, the Cannabis industry has boosted the industrial market in Denver and has lead to record-high rents and low vacancy rates according to director of research and analysis for CBRE in Denver.
