Abstract

Recent demands for the reduction and reutilization of waste have motivated scientific research on the development of clean technologies and optimization of process parameters to achieve sustainable production. In this context, this review aims to provide some perspective about the applications of integrated techniques for biorefining of plant matrices into marketable products using supercritical carbon dioxide as a green solvent. Considering that Brazil has enormous potential for biorefining of renewable raw materials, extensive scientific investigations have been performed recently to produce a wide variety of products from plant matrices, including high-quality extracts, biopolymers and particle devices, with the aim of designing integrated supercritical fluid-based small-scale biorefineries. Thus, in this review, a compilation of the main recent findings in our laboratory and others are presented in detail. (AU)
