Developments in our research centre

From feasibility to optimization

NATECO2’s scientists are highly experienced in providing a wide range of services in the field of high pressure technology. Two laboratory extraction units and a technical centre enable us to carry out innovative implementation of the CO2 technology at pressures of up to 1,000 bar. Supplementary CO2 technologies such as counter-current-columns and apparatus for the generation of particles complete the portfolio in our research centre. 

Together we can achieve more

Together with you our team continually develops innovative products and processes on the basis of the CO2 technology in our research centre.

Our research facilities are in accordance in their structure with the large extraction units. Thus not only is the consequent scalability of the tests in industrial scale but also their commercial perspective possible. As the leap from small scale to production scale is often large, our pilot plant provides you with an intermediate stage. This means that the parameters obtained can be confirmed on a larger scale and significant sample quantities can be generated for you or for use in your further product development.

In addition to development and implementation of CO2 extraction tests, feasibility studies and scaling-up possibilities, we also have advanced CO2 technologies: Our research centre is equipped with a counter-current-column for fluid/supercritical refinement as well as with equipment for generation of defined particles and powders.

Innovative CO₂-technologies

In addition to developing your CO2 extraction process, we go a step further. A supplementary treatment of the essences allows a counter-current-column. Likewise, defined powders can be produced or innovative impregnations and encapsulations can be developed.
