The Supercritical CO2 Customer Advantage

Extracting, separating, purifying, crystalizing are all outcomes that customers rely on Phasex to perform, using our proprietary supercritical fluid CO2 process for a variety of materials used in diverse application across a host of markets. Phasex is the world’s most experienced company whose business is solely the application of supercritical fluid technology to the development of improved processes and products.

Phasex pioneered many of the industrial applications in use today and has developed and commercialized many products, and is renowned for our:

  • Technical expertise
  • Innovation
  • Commercial-scale toll processing services
  • Professional approach
  • Scientific methodology
  • Versatile, food-grade compliant toll processing facility
  • Ability to rapidly optimize and scale-up processes
  • Grow with customers’ requirements, satisfying their needs at every point in the product evaluation sequence

Supercritical fluids provide processing capabilities not available with other purification and extraction methods. Phasex has developed processes for purifying heat labile compounds, where traditional distillation methods have failed, and extracting active components from botanical substrates with no residual solvent levels in the final product. Our selective extraction and recrystallization using supercritical fluids has benefited the pharmaceutical industry with increased yield and solvent-free products.

Why Phasex

Phasex’s proprietary food-grade supercritical CO2 extraction process helps:

  • Ensure the highest purity and quality of extracts with supercritical CO2
  • Minimize contamination
  • Maximize product yields
  • Retain potency in the final extracted ingredient
  • Maintain maximum product stability

Integrating 75 years of combined experience in the application of supercritical fluids, Phasex continues to excel in developing new market opportunities for the technology. We’ve been involved, at one time or another, in nearly every industry. Our activities still reach a diversity of markets and will continue to evolve to reflect changes in industrial climate.


Successful customer processing includes:

  • Concentrated astaxanthin for dietary supplements
  • Purification of whole plant hemp extracts
