The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of the main process parameters on supercritical fluid extraction of walnut (Juglans regia L.) kernel oil. The recovery of walnut kernel oil was performed in a green and high-tech separation process. CO2 and CO2 + ethanol mixtures were used as the supercritical solvent. The extraction was carried out at operating pressures of 30, 40 and 50 MPa, operating temperatures of 313, 323 and 333 K, mean particle sizes of 1.78×10−4, 3.03×10−4, 4… CONTINUE READING
