Clean, Safe, Pure, Effective

Supercritical CO2 allows for the extraction and separation of a high variety of natural products without the use of dangerous solvents, waste generation or further downstream steps to remove the solvent. It is effective at removing undesirable substances (pesticides, odors, etc.) as well as for pharmaceutical applications (sterilization, chiral separation, etc.).
