Solvent Processing Services
Our Solvent Processing area is unique due to its size and versatility. Solvent extraction of herbals, oilseeds and other materials such as biomass is easily handled as well as hydrogenation reactions for edible oils. Flammable solvents such as alcohols and hexane are handled safely in specially designed explosion proof equipment.
Common processes include:
- traditional oilseed extraction
- biomass solvent extraction (i.e. yeast, algae, bacteria)
- solvent extraction of plant components
- solid and liquid desolventization
