he separation of substances from natural materials to obtain standardized products plays a pivotal role in food technology.

However this process has been a reality on an industrial scale for several decades. To convert gasses into effective solvents a liquid like density has to be created by applying pressure. In the field of this high pressure technology supercritical CO2 emerged as the most suitable solvent. CO2 extraction is used particularly in the food and beverage sector due to its manifold advantages and areas of applications.
