Supercritical fluid extraction with CO2

Supercritical CO2 extraction is a sophisticated process utilized extensively in various sectors such as pharmaceuticals, food processing, and cosmetics. This technique involves using carbon dioxide above its critical point (31.1°C temperature and 73 bar pressure) to create a supercritical fluid. This state of CO2 combines the properties of both gas and liquid, making it an excellent solvent for extracting active ingredients without the degradation associated with traditional methods.

Environmental and Operational Advantages

- Non-Toxic and Safe: CO2 is non-toxic and non-flammable, offering a safer alternative to organic solvents used in conventional extraction processes.

- Environmentally Friendly: The process is environmentally benign as CO2 is recycled within the system, significantly reducing waste and eliminating solvent disposal issues.

- Efficiency and Selectivity: The ability to precisely control the temperature and pressure allows for the selective extraction of specific compounds, optimizing yield and purity.
