Research & Development in our Research Center
Starting at initial feasibility studies up to optimization
Scientists of NATECO₂ have long-term experience, in the area of high-pressure technologies, at their disposal. Two lab extraction units and a pilot unit enable execution of innovative CO₂-Extraction, with pressures up to 1,000 bar. Additional scCO₂-technologies, like Counter-Current Columns and equipment for Particle Generation, complement services range in our research center.
Achieving more commonly
Together with you, our team continuously develops innovative products and processes, based on supercritical CO₂-Extraction, in our research center.
Regarding set-up, our research units correspond with large extraction units. Later on scalability of trials into an industrial range, as well as their economic consideration, are possible herewith. Since transition from a small to a production scale is sometimes certainly huge, there is an in-house pilot unit available to you, as an intermediate step. As a result, determined parameters can be confirmed at a larger scale and significant sample quantities produced for you, your customers or utilization in your further product development.
Besides development and execution of CO₂-extraction trials, feasibility studies and scaling, we also possess advanced scCO₂-technologies: Our research center is additionally equipped with a Counter-Current Column for liquid/supercritical refinements and also with units for generation of defined Particles and Powders.
