SUPERCRITICAL FLUID CO2 EXTRACTION

Supercritical Fluid CO2 Extraction (SC-CO2) is a new extraction technology in modern chemical separation which is efficient, ethical, and environmentally friendly.

It achieves these qualities by only using food grade Carbon Dioxide (CO2) gas as a solvent under   controlled pressure and temperature. Supercritical fluid has unique physical and chemical properties, it is almost as dense as liquid and as viscosity as gas. It can effuse through solids like a gas, and dissolve material like a liquid.

The essential working requirements of any Botanical Material being extracted in a SC-CO2 unit is to have controlled product moisture and particle size.

CPF Green Solutions have installed in-house, a natural gas fired hot air drying unit and a pneumatic milling facility, to obtain the correct product moisture and particle size of all Botanical Material being processed.

CPF Green Solutions new and completely unique products have been developed utilising Supercritical Fluid CO2 Extraction technology, taking the advantage of high quality up-cycled or repurposed Botanical Materials.
