Chemical Processing

Manufacturer of industrial equipments for new extraction processes using supercritical carbon dioxide and subcritical water.

ER INGENIERIE designs and manufactures extraction and fractionation equipments for pharmaceutical, cosmetic and chemistry actors from laboratory to industrial scale.

Some examples of the processes developed at ER INGENIERIE :

  • High pressure extraction with different fluids (CO2, H2O, Alcohols, Ethers, Alkanes…)
  • Liquid materials fractionation (Omega-3)
  • API encapsulation by jet atomization
  • Production of nanometric powders for galenic purpose
  • Impregnation of materials (tissues dying, chemical reactions on organic materials)
  • Contaminants elimination (pesticides, plastics recycling)
  • VOCs treatments

Savoir-faire & applications

NATURAL PRODUCTS / FOOD

EQUIPEMENTS DEDICATED TO NATURAL PRODUCTS TREATMENT

There is a wide range of possibilities for the high-pressure treatment of natural products. We can extract solids like plants for perfume industry (lavender, roses, jasmine…) and for food industry (vitamins, antioxidants, aromas…) as well as fractionation of liquid raw materials (unsaturated fatty acids separation) and elimination of dangerous materials like pesticides and allergens. According to clients request ER INGENIERIE is able to provide initial feasibility study or design and manufacture an equipment or do the complete process (from initial idea to the machine implementation).

KNOW HOW

  • Laboratory studies (trials)
  • High pressure extractions of plants
  • High pressure extractions of see products (algae, fishes, krill)
  • Pesticides elimination treatment
  • Fungicides impregnation treatments
Applications

  • Extraction of omegas 3, 6 et 9
  • EPA / DHA fractionation
  • Polyphenols extraction
  • Flavonoids extraction
  • Extraction Huiles Essentielles (dérivés terpéniques)
  • Extraction Vitamines (tocophérol)
  • Extraction Alcaloïdes (nicotine, caféine)

Pharmacy

DEDICATED EQUIPMENTS FOR PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY

The techniques of extraction, pulverization, micro-encapsulation by means of high pressure fluids lead to new possibilities for drug manufacturing (galenic).
Complementary to classical processes like coacervation, spray-drying, evaporation, fluidized bed, the processes based on supercritical fluids use permit to achieve better performances in terms of biodisponibility of the active product. Same remark for APIs encapsulation.

Know how

  • APIs extraction from plants (carbon dioxide or water or…)
  • Galenic – Slow release pharmaceutical forms
  • Biodisponibility control
  • cGMP equipments manufacturing
  • Chemical reactions in supercritical media
  • Viruses and bacteria inactivation
Applications

  • Therapeutic cannabis (CBD)
  • Phyto-ingredients
  • Atomization with high pressure fluids
  • Encapsulation
  • Delipidation (vaccines)
  • Cleaning and degreasing of bones implants
  • Viruses and bacteria inactivation with CO2
  • Bioresorbable tissues manufacturing (surgery) and functionalized (surface treatment)

  • Cleaning / activation of metallic pieces
  • Drying steps in electronic wafers manufacturing
  • Metallic powders drying
  • Elimination of molding waxes
  • Fluorinated liquid polymers fractionation
  • Destruction of ultimate wastes with supercritical water
Applications

  • Micro-electronics (cleaning ang drying)
  • Aerogels (fundamental physics, construction buildings, spatial…)
  • Cutting tools manufacturing (sintered metals)
  • Plastics recycling (PVC for example)
  • Hazardous substances destruction (combat gas)
  • Activated carbon regeneration (VOCs treatment)
  • Monomers / oligomers elimination (after polymerization step)
  • Dying of tissues (polyester) without using water
