Advantages and benefits of supercritical CO2 use

Supercritical CO2 extraction

The supercritical CO2 extraction process allows to :


Molecule cbd thc supercriticall fluid extraction

Supercritical CO2 application wine cork sfe process

Vegetal supercritical process food pharmaceutic industry - sfe process

Pure extract supercritical carbon dioxyde process - sfe process

Financial advantages: why to use supercritical CO2 equipments SFEProd and SFELab?

  • Product even more profitable
  • Produce continuously and automatically with very low idle and turnaround time
  • Decades of R&D, high performance and secured technology. SFE Process further develop equipment wich run continuously with little maintenance.
  • Fast and efficient ROI
  • Investment in sCO2 is low risky and increase significantly productivity
  • Financial capacity of SFE Process guarantee profitability, certainly on delivery operation support and production. Able to track rapid growth of companies and provide larger equipments.

Pure extract & high end extract and oil / high yields of extract

No trace of contaminant or solvent residues/ no waste

Different content of cannabis / different purposes/ various applications

Less steps/ easier / faster à Enhance Productivity

Best combination with particle size and superficial velocity

CO2: excellent mass transfer property/ control of compounds variability

Not corrosive /inexpensive /odourless /colourless/ non toxic

Fractionation: oil gathered and dewaxing is made

            Purification/ fractionation + chromatography of final composition

Supercritical CO2 fractionation

Fractionation can be compared to a normal liquid-liquid extraction: liquid mixtures can be separated by supercritical fluid. Using a supercritical solvent arises many advantages compared to a classic organic solvent. Liquids can be continuously introduced in and withdrawn from high pressure unit.

The supercritical CO2 fractionate process allows to :


  • Isolate and remove molecule with even better precision
  • For chemically closely molecules, or mixtures, it allows to separate efficiently
  • Enrich a liquid
  • Guarantee better molecule integrity by processing with lower temperatures
  • Remove post processing steps

It can be seen as step two after supercritical fluid separation process. Allows chromatography process after fractionation step.

Fractionnation high pressure supercritical - sfe process

Supercritical CO2 chromatography

The principle is based on the use of supercritical fluid as mobile phase or eluent.

SFE Process builds ultra-high performance advanced chromatography equipment for laboratories and industries. With chromatography and high pressure fluid use, it is possible to separate molecules, for example cannabinoid from THC, after previous cannabis high pressure processes. Thanks to this process quantative determination is possible.

It could be seen as third step of process and enlarge the fields of application : pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, specialty chemistry.
