Cryogenic Ethanol technology has taken the extraction world by storm since 2019! Also called Cold Ethanol Extraction, the technology cuts down process time from days to hours and delivers a pristine, full-spectrum product. The process is scalable, safe, and can be standardized.

Loaded with compounds from nearly every biogenetic class, Cannabis is a fascinating plant with versatile healing properties. Full spectrum cannabis oil contains multiple molecules which produce the synergic “entourage effect,” surpassing the isolated impact of different compounds.

Cryogenic Ethanol Extraction draws out:

  • Cannabinoids: CBD, THC, CBC, CBG, CBDV.
  • Terpenes: Myrcene, Limonene, Pinene, Linalool, b-caryophyllene, Terpinene, and Eucalyptol.
  • Flavonoids: Apigenin, Luteolin, Kaempferol, Wuercetin, and Cannflavin A and B.
  • Amino Acids: All eight essentials.
  • Polyphenols
  • Lignans
  • Chlorophyll
  • Alkamides

With customers demanding pure ingredients in products and regulators mandating the same, Cryogenic Ethanol Extraction is at the top of every producer’s mind. Technical upgrades will further reinforce the trend.

OUR PROCESS

  • Ethanol (solvent) is chilled to – 40 degree Celsius. At such low temperatures, it is called Cryogenic Ethanol or Cryo Ethanol.
  • Dried and finely milled biomass (Cannabis) is loaded in the Centrifugal Extractor.
  • Cryo Ethanol is introduced in the extractor to extract the required compounds from the Cannabis biomass.
  • Centrifugal force is applied to the extractor to separate the Cryo Ethanol containing dissolved molecules from the residual solid biomass.
  • Mixture from the evaporator is filtered to remove solid impurities from Ethanol.
  • Ethanol is evaporated. This leaves behind pure Cannabis extract (oil).

SCFE VS OTHER CONVENTIONAL EXTRACTION TECHNOLOGIES

SCFE Extraction
  • Product free of solvent traces
  • Product free of
  • heavy metal content
  • Product free of inorganic salts
  • Low operating temperatures and selective extraction of CO2 as a solvent ensures extracts resembling actual components

Solvent Extraction
  • Solvent traces present in final product
  • Heavy metal content in final product based on application
  • Inorganic salt content in final product
  • Polar substances get dissolved with certain components of the final product thereby giving final product a different colour and flow characteristics, thereby making it not resemble the actual basic components to be extracted
