Nova Extraction is an engineering start-up. They designed, built and validated an off-grid and mobile equipment to extract high value ingredients from natural feedstocks. Using their proprietary design and know-how they created an affordable clean tech extraction technology based on compressed CO2 method. They plan to offer it both for purchase and for hire. The equipment is designed to be modular and scalable; it will be deployed right in the field and do the processing in-situ. So far, they built 2 industrial pilots which are now operational with third that will be commissioned by end of 2018.
Some of the areas of application are: extracting flavours and fragrances (for example flowers into essential oils); up-cycling food processing waste (for example getting coffee oil from spent coffee grounds); extracting specific active chemicals (for example CBD from hemp).
