Pharmaceutical CO2 extraction plant

This industrial CO2 extraction plant was engineered and built for a pharmaceutical company in England. Its is used for the extraction of medicinal compounds and active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) from a medicinal natural raw material. The company and the plant are approved and regularly inspected from relevant parties like: 

  • European Medicines Agency (EMA)
  • US Food and Drugs Association (FDA)
  • Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) 
  • World Health Organization (WHO)

This state-of-the-art pharma CO2 extraction plant is setting new standards in cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) for this high-pressure process. With newly designed hygienic sealing systems, dead space free instrumentation and automatic CIP system (clean in place) the duration of the cleaning process is significantly shortened and contamination is prevented. 

With this plant Natex is proving its position as a reliable partner for developing, engineering, fabricating and installing industrial CO2 processing plants for pharmaceutical applications which are fulfilling all relevant requirements like Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP 5), 21 CFR part 11 and more.
