On October 13th Loyalist College held the official opening of its new Supercritical C02 Extraction Laboratory. This lab will be used for a material processing technology known as C02 Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE) that signals the start of a new applied research project and the first college-level training program of its kind in Ontario.


Loyalist’s laboratory is a significant addition to South Eastern Ontario. The Eastern Lake Ontario Regional Innovation Network (ELORIN) sees it as a major addition in developing the region’s initiatives in food processing, food ingredients, medicine and biotechnology.
