Vegetal extracts: essential oils & hydrosols, purified plants extracts

 

Aqueous extraction

This gentle way of extraction is selectively extracting molecules soluble in water, leaving less soluble molecules within the by-product generated from this first extraction. These aqueous extracts can then be concentrated by gentle evaporation process and turned into a powder either by spray or freeze drying technics. All residues generated by aqueous extraction are, for the most of them, recycled for secondary extraction using water and ethanol as solvent.

 

Solvent extraction

Extraction using other solvents than water is also available at SiliCycle. The solvents are selected for their abilities to extract from the biomass, used as starting raw material, molecules which would have not been otherwise extracted effectively (or at all) by water. The solvents used in all of our process (with exception of water) are recycled by distillation and can be re-used or discarded according to local environmental regulations. This process allows the extraction of key compounds from nature which can be further enriched and purified using chromatography technologies, which SiliCycle mastered now for more than two decades.
