I have been looking into the technique of extracting plant oils with CO2 gas in a controlled atmospheric environment. Usually, plants are steam distilled to extract what is known as essential oils form the plant, but this is not always possible, however with CO2 extraction it can, and with more control.

The problem is that there are not a lot of commercial options available, as yet, on the market for this technique, and those which are command a higher price for the same plant.

Are there any UK based CO2 extration facilities that could handle volume ?

Why can't you do an internet search and contact the numerous companies listed which do this?
