Supercritical CO2 Extraction
Supercritical fluid extraction is an efficient separation method of active ingredients from plant material. Supercritical solvent extraction is one of the gentlest, flexible, dynamic and nature-friendly techniques used for the extraction of spices, herbs and flowers using food grade CO2. These products are extracted at ambient temperature and high pressure to avoid loss of aroma and degradation of actives.
Apart from being solvent residue free, the supercritical fluid extraction is a green process that is highly rated for its eco-friendliness. The low viscosity and high diffusivity of supercritical fluid enhances the penetrating power based on the high mass transfer of solutes into the fluid.
Supercritical extraction using CO2 is considered organic compatible and is widely used in the manufacturing of organic certified products. Kancor, with its global sourcing capabilities, more than two decades of expertise in CO2 extraction and its wide range of products in this category, has a distinctive competitive edge.
