Are you a coffee/tea producer looking for a less toxic solvent to effectively decaffeinate your product? Or a functional foods ingredient producer looking for a natural way to extract active ingredients? Or are you looking for an environmentally friendly way to extract ornachloride pesticides or metals from your crops, safely replacing harsher solvents?
By increasing the temperature and pressure of your CO₂, you can reach a supercritical phase where CO₂ has a gas like diffusion (fills up the space like a gas) and a liquid like density. In this state, the CO₂ becomes one of the best solvents in nature. Additionally, our CO₂, recuperated from clean industrial emissions, has a very low carbon footprint. This is why an increasing number of food ingredients and coffee producers are using sCO₂ in their extraction processes.
With our state-of-the-art sCO₂ laboratory and extensive know how, we can help you determine the ideal settings for your specific extraction needs.
