Vegetal extraction method alternative to petroleum solvents (12 FR 33J8 3O59)

A French laboratory has developed a vegetal extraction method that is efficient, selective and a green alternative to petroleum solvents. This method is suitable for already existing solvent-extracting industrial facilities. It has direct applications in vegetal oil extraction, cosmetics ingredients and food additives, fragrance industry and pharmaceutical drugs fractions extracted. Partners interested in further development, technical cooperation and license of this technology are sought.

A French laboratory has developed a vegetal extraction method. The offered technology is a substitute for petroleum solvents such as hexane to prepare vegetal organic and purified extracts. This method is using safe natural terpenes originating from abundant and renewable sources and is fully respectful to the environment and safe to handle.
Natural products extraction with petroleum derivatives solvents causes safety, health, and environmental concerns everywhere. Conventional processes for the extraction of compounds from vegetal material usually require petroleum unpurified fractions and derivatives solvents, such as hexane, toluene, dichloromethane, alcohols, methyl ethyl ketone, acetone, glycols ethers, chlorinated and fluorinated solvents etc., which are noxious and mostly inflammable.
