The AP.EMU project entitled laboratory scale supercritical extraction unit refers to the purchase of an extraction equipment with supercritical fluid and accessories. The equipment was primarily requested and further recommended in the thematic project 2016 / 06931-4. The equipment will be used to perform green extractions without the use of petrochemical solvents, within the expectations of the bioeconomy. The accessories will be: (1) a cosolvent pump, to increase the range of metabolites to be extracted because of the possibility of increasing the polarity, and (2) vessels of different volumes (from 25 mL) to work with rare samples until those with higher amounts. The procedures for using the equipment will be available on the website of the responsible institution. (AU)
