Current methodologies in extraction include conventional hydrocarbon techniques. New Super Critical CO2 Extraction have also entered the market place. However, to meet the current market demands, which require much of the following;
– Protection of Cannaboids to maintain a full spectrum and “entourage effect” require a “sub-critical” mode for terpene extraction.
– Market demands for water soluble CBD’s require a specialized process involving reagents and other super/sub critical solutions.
Circa Life Sciences has state of the art, modular, scaleable processes which decrease processing time and increases yields, at the same time addressing quality assurance for specific applications, be they recreational/pharmaceutical or isolates and blends.
The unique properties of supercritical fluids, supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2), as well as Super Critical Water Oxidation (SCWO) provide numerous opportunities for the development of processes for pharmaceutical applications. One of the potential applications for pharmaceuticals includes microencapsulation and nanoencapsulation for drug delivery purposes. Supercritical CO2 processes allow the design and control of particle size, as well as drug loading by utilizing the tunable properties of supercritical CO2 at different operating conditions (flow ratio, temperature, pressures, etc.).
Our modular design and flexibilities in our processing allow Circa Life Sciences to perform the following processes:
ATOMIZATION – CONCENTRATION – CRYSTALLIZATION – ENRICHMENT – EXTRACTION – IMPREGNATION – CLEANING – DRYING –
POLYMERIZATION – SPRAYING – PURIFICATION – STRENGTHENING – SEPARATION – STERILISATION – SOLUBILISATION – and many more!
