Q: How much oil will 1 tonne of rapeseed produce?
A: Approximately 30 to 35% of the rapeseed will be extracted as oil giving around 300 to 350 litres per tonne. The remaining cake pills will have an oil content of approximately 12 %.
Q: What is the lifetime of the wearing components in the press unit?
A: The screw has an approximate life of 90 to 100 tonnes (30,000 litres of oil), but this can vary depending on the sample and cleanliness of rape being crushed. This equates to a cost of around 1 pence per litre of oil produced.
Q: What uses are there for the rape cake pills? (Pellets that are about 6mm diameter and 10 to 40mm in length.)
A: The pills can either be used as part of an animal feed ration, or they can be used as fuel in heating boilers.
Q: What uses are there for the rape oil?

Q: How much energy will be used to produce 1 litre of oil?
A: 1 litre of oil will consume about 125 watts, costing about 1 pence of electricity to produce.
There is currently no known “correct” dose of CBD oil. Depending on individual needs and what is being treated, the daily dose may range between 5 and 25 mg.
Many of these interactions are mild and require no adjustment to treatment. Others may require a drug substitution or the separation of doses by several hours.
Potential drug-drug interactions with CBD include:
How to Calculate CBD Dose
Outside of these two disorders, CBD’s effectiveness in treating seizures is uncertain. Even with Epidiolex, it is uncertain whether the anti-seizure effects can be attributed to CBD or some other factor.
CBD oil is an extract of Cannabis indica or Cannabis sativa—the same plants that, when dried, make marijuana. CBD oil is believed by some to treat pain, reduce anxiety, and stimulate appetite in the same way that marijuana does, but without its psychoactive effects. CBD has also shown promise in treating certain types of seizures.
CBD oil contains CBD mixed with an inert carrier oil, such as coconut oil or hemp seed oil. The bottled oil, called a tincture, is sold in various concentrations. There are also CBD capsules, CBD gummies, and under-the-tongue CBD sprays.
For this study, nine healthy men took either 600 mg of CBD or the same dose of a placebo. According to the researcher, those treated with CBD had lower blood pressure before and after exposure to stressful stimuli (including exercise or extreme cold).
To further help Canadian businesses facing extreme financial challenges brought on by the global response to COVID-19, the Government of Canada has expanded EDC’s domestic capabilities until December 31, 2021. This broader mandate will enable EDC to expand its support to companies focused domestically.
EDC and BDC, both of which are financially sustainable Crown corporations, are working together to respond to the needs of Canadian companies during the COVID-19 pandemic. Working in partnership with the Government of Canada and private and public sector partners, they are using each other’s strengths and products and services to help Canadian businesses navigate these extraordinary times. Together, they will help provide emergency economic relief to mitigate the economic impact on Canadian businesses.
This support for qualifying Canadian oil and gas companies is in addition to other EDC and BDC programs that companies can access through their financial institutions such as financial solutions under the Business Credit Availability Program (BCAP) and interest-free loans for small businesses and not-for-profits available under Canada Emergency Business Account (CEBA). The BCAP and CEBA relief programs are focused on providing much needed liquidity to small- and medium-sized companies.
As part of the Government of Canada’s economic response plan, EDC will increase its financial capacity over 12 months to support Canada’s oil and gas sector. This business support will be provided through EDC’s lending, bonding and accounts receivable insurance products. For those wishing to access support, they are encouraged to reach out to their financial institution for more information.
As part of a Team Canada response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Government of Canada, through Export Development Canada (EDC) and the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), will make available added financial capacity to help support Canada’s oil and gas sector.
The commercial support, to be provided through EDC and BDC, is intended to help Canada’s exploration and production, mid-stream, and oil-field companies navigate these uncertain times. The support is aimed at helping bring liquidity into the market in order to manage the challenges companies are facing due to the global pandemic and decline in oil prices.
“As an important driver of the Canadian economy, it’s important that we do our part to support Canada’s oil and gas companies during the crisis. This is part of our commitment to support Canadian companies of all sizes, in every sector. EDC will continue to work with our government and financial industry partners to be responsive to the needs of Canadian companies during these challenging times,” said Burlock.
