NEOS Essential Oils Microwave Extraction Unit
The NEOS system is based on the Solvent-Free Microwave Extraction (SFME) technology for rapid extraction of essential oils from aromatic herbs, spices and dry seeds.
These novel processes can produce essential oil in concentrate form, free from any residual solvents, contaminants, or artefacts. The NEOS system confirms that microwave isolation offers net advantages in terms of yield and selectivity, with better isolation time, essential oil composition, and is environmental friendly.
The NEOS system is the result of the partnership between Milestone and the "Laboratory of Chemistry of Natural Substances and Food Sciences” of the Université de la Réunion (France), which lead to the grant of the European patents 1439218, 1618798 and 1629725.
