Why CO2 Extraction ?

The conventional Extraction process has limitations of solvent toxicity, presence of residual solvents in the final extract and even loss of heat-sensitive oils.

The rapidly emerging Supercritical fluid extraction technology is attracting more global markets and larger profits.

Supercritical CO2 is becoming the preferred extraction choice for the industry.


Top 10 reasons to go for CO2 Extraction

1. USFDA approved “Green Technology”.

2. One Machine– Multiple business solutions.

3. Easy available, Safest – fully Recoverable Media.

4. Higher extraction efficiency, the benefit of Selective Extraction.

5. Operates without altering or damaging products natural properties.

6. No effluent generation and No pollution related hassles & costs.

7. Lower operating costs, Global markets ensuring Higher Profits.

8. 100 % cGMP Compliance, Food & Pharma grade Equipment.

9. Ready Pilot Plant to assist actual business, product and process trials.

10. 30 years old Automation  Company – Proprietary Designs, Project costs reduced by 60%.

Extract Essential Oil with no residual solvents and hazards using Advanced Supercritical CO2 Extraction

Extract Essential Oil with no residual solvents and hazards using Advanced Supercritical CO2 Extraction

The worldwide production and consumption of essential oils and perfumes are increasing at rapid speed. The traditional technologies for extraction of essential oil processing are of great significance, but one cannot deny the fact that they do have significant drawbacks compared to the advanced extraction technique like CO2 Supercritical Extraction. Why are traditional methods of extraction not safe? The traditional methods of essential oil extraction are hydro-distillation or solvent extraction. The concern using the traditional methods is the losses of some volatile compounds, low extraction efficiency, degradation of unsaturated compounds through thermal or hydrolytic effects and toxic solvent residue in the extract. Disadvantages of Water and Steam Distillation Due to the low pressure of rising steam, oils of high-boiling range require a higher quantity of steam for vaporization -hence longer hours of distillation. The plant material becomes wet, which slows down distillation as the steam has to vaporize the water to allow it to condense further up the still. Oxygenated components such as phenols tend to dissolve in the still water, so their complete removal by distillation is not possible. As water distillation tends to be a small operation (operated by one or two persons), it takes a long time to accumulate much oil, so good quality oil is often mixed with lousy quality oil. The distillation process is treated as art by local distillers, who rarely try to optimize both oil yield and quality. Water distillation is a slower process than either water and steam distillation or direct steam distillation. What is the alternative solution to overcome solvent residue and toxic solvents? The conventional extraction process has limitations of solvent toxicity, presence of residual solvents in the final extract and even loss of heat-sensitive oils.
