Cleanroom requirements for the cannabis industry are very similar to those of the pharmaceutical industry with some additional challenges unique to the industry. Cannabis cleanrooms must combat several unique contamination sources, including pollen contamination between strains, mites, and microbial growth. Liberty Industries can help cannabis growers comply with strict handling standards by providing quality supplies.
What is a Cleanroom?
To create a cleanroom environment, contaminants like dust, airborne microorganisms, and aerosol particles are filtered out in a cleanroom. Cleanrooms also regulate factors like humidity, temperature, and airflow.
Before entering a filter system, the outside air is cycled through a HEPA ( high efficient particulate air) filter system. The outside air is decontaminated according to the filter’s parameters and pushed into the cleanroom. In essence, cleanrooms purge impurities, particulates, and toxins from the ambient outdoor air.
The cannabis industry has created the need for high-quality, robust cleanrooms that withstand harsh conditions. Cannabis cleanrooms must control particles (and their sizes) to meet Health Canada, the FDA, and the EU GMP requirements.
Impact of Cleanrooms on the Cannabis Industry
Cannabis cleanrooms are quickly becoming a necessity to create success for commercial growers. High-quality cannabis plants require an environment free of the following contaminants:
- Aerosol particles
- Airborne microbes
- Chemical vapors
A cleanroom’s controlled environment can produce higher-yielding, healthier crops than can be grown in traditional grow houses, outdoors, or greenhouses. This fairly new billion-dollar industry has created the need for high-quality, strong cleanrooms that can stand up to the harsh working environment within the fast-paced cannabis industry. Cleanliness standards like ISO 5 and ISO 7 affect the growing process as growers try to develop quality products through cleaner, safer handling of cannabis plants throughout their life cycle.
Maintaining an ISO 5 to ISO 7 class cleanroom certification and complying with the FDA’s regulations on growing cannabis by operating in a cleanroom can lead to higher crop yields and help protect your workers and clients from any safety issues.
The cannabis industry is growing exponentially as state laws change to permit commercial growth. Because of this rapid growth, industry experts are working to reduce the environmental impact cannabis farming imparts. A well-designed cleanroom can effectively reduce the impact your growing operation has on the environment.
