Our Founder

Linn Havelick has had a long career in process chemistry, environmental health & safety, laboratories, and hazardous materials. When he started working with the plant oil extraction industry, he saw a need for an oil extraction facility that would provide a safe working environment while meeting regulatory and code requirements. He developed the HAL Extraction Booth System to provide business managers and entrepreneurs with affordable solutions to the rapidly evolving challenges of the plant oil extraction industry.

Linn started his technical career in the Extractive Metallurgy Department
of AMAX Research and Development Laboratory in the late 1970’s.

At the end of 2013, the State of Colorado created a requirement for Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH) to review marijuana extraction facilities. As a CIH, Linn is using his background in extraction and safety to help move the plant oil extraction industry into the modern, legal, and safe world.

Since 2006, Linn has traveled to Eastern Europe many times to work with Romanian universities to provide workshops in environmental health and safety topics. His work contributes to fostering professional connections between occupational health professionals in Romania and Colorado.

Linn holds a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and a Master of Public Administration, both from the University
of Colorado at Denver. He has been certified by the American Board of Industrial Hygiene since 1988.
