iBiosys - No CO2 is produced in the SCF process

NO carbon dioxide is produced in the SCF process

 

Carbon dioxide is one of the most commonly used supercritical fluids. It is safe, inexpensive, readily available, and an ideal substitute for many hazardous and toxic solvents.
 

During the supercritical process, only existing carbon dioxide is used.
