The search for processes to obtain new natural and sustainable ingredients

Consumers are changing and becoming increasingly attentive to the sustainability and origin of products. There is an increasing demand for natural ingredients and products that are produced in accordance with sustainable standards. Searching for new ingredient sources is a challenge, as is the sustainable and clean sourcing of them once they have been found.

When marketing the products, a key factor is the quality of the ingredients. This is why the solutions provided must not adversely affect the properties of the natural ingredients. On the other hand, dealing with the effluents generated in the extraction process is costly for the company, which affects its competitiveness and capacity to negotiate.

CO2 supercritical extraction and separation

CO2 supercritical extraction is an efficient and natural alternative for obtaining new ingredients (foods and cosmetics, functional substances, fragrances, APIs), removal of fats, impurities or unwanted substances ( smells, pesticides…). On the other hand, high-pressure CO2 permits microbiological inactivation without requiring high temperatures, and can be used for impregnation and treatment of advanced materials.   Food
