METHOD OF EXTRACTION: CO2 Supercritical carbon dioxide. This method uses carbon dioxide that is in a fluid state but has a temperature and pressure that give it unique properties somewhere between a gas and a liquid. This enables it to act as a solvent that is idea for chemical extraction due to its low toxicity. It is also very easy to separate the solvent (CO2) from the oil at the end of the process ensuring maximum purity.
