Redesign plant extraction with a safe and eco-efficient process

EcoXtract® has huge potential in the extraction of vegetable oils, plant-sourced protein, and natural lipophilic molecules, replacing toxic extraction agents such as hexane in growing markets that globally use more than a million tons of these petrochemicals per year
