Design and analysis of supercritical extraction processes

Traditional separation technologies, such as distillation, are energy intensive. This project has initiated the development of a supercritical extraction process as a more energy efficient alternative.

Supercritical extraction is a novel separation method, currently under development, which can replace energy intensive distillation. The objective of this project was to develop systematic and integrated design and analysis algorithms for these processes, and to validate them with experimental data. The main tasks of this project were to obtain new and valuable phase equilibrium data for supercritical extraction design, and to develop steady state and supercritical extraction process simulators.
