Green Technology Solventless Extraction of Beneficial Essential Oil

Co-Researchers: Awang Soh Mamat, Dalila Nasshorudin


Essential oils are recognized for their aromatic smell and possess antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, anticancer and bio pesticide properties. Due to these intriguing biological activities,m essential oils are widely applied in the cosmetic industry producing various cologne waters, bathing essences, hair lotions and shampoos and as a component of disinfectant and insecticides. As a result, the market demand for these valuable products has increased remarkably.


This has driven researchers and manufacturers to search for new methods of extraction in order to improve the yield without alteration of the qualitative traits of the products extracted. Thus, the extraction of essential oils under solventless essential oil extractor has been invented as one of the upcoming extraction techniques that can offer high reproducibility in shorter times, simplified manipulation, reduced solvent consumption and lower energy input.












  • Simple and easy to assemble
  • Low energy consumption
  • No purification steps needed
  • High quality of oil produced
  • Environmental friendly
  • Zero solvent waste



  • The process requires shorter period of time, reduced operational cost
  • Essential oil produced is pure, no purification step needed
  • Can be widely used as medical purpose as there are no residual solvents or impurities, save to be used for people with sensitive skin or allergies
  • Suitable for heat-sensitive plant material
  • The principle can be applied to any type of plant species that have sublimation properties
