SUP ENG – the CO2 and supercritical fluid specialist

Jean-Yves Clavier : Experience – Independence- Expertise

SUP ENG was created at the end of 2016 by Dr. Jean-Yves CLAVIER, with the aim of helping companies to be more efficient in their R&D and industrialization projects and by using: CO2, Supercritical Fluid and High Pressure technology.

With an extensive experience of process engineering in these areas since 1990 Dr. Jean-Yves CLAVIER has been working at Separex for more than 20 years with Prof Michel Perrut’s team, first in R&D and process development, then developing and leading High Pressure Equipment design and construction activity and finally managing SEPAREX company.

The creation of SUP ENG in 1996 was a perfect opportunity for Jean-Yves CLAVIER to be independent, giving the best of his experience, his knowledge and his expertise in engineering to use the potential of supercritical fluid technology where it can be useful.

What will SUP ENG and Supercritical Fluid Technology bring you ?

Innovative Solutions: Supercritical fluids, especially supercritical CO2, have unique properties that bridge the gap between liquids and gases. An expert consultant can exploit these properties to develop new solutions for material extraction, reactions and processing that are not possible with conventional methods.

Environmental benefits: Working with a consultant specializing in supercritical fluid technology often means engaging in processes with a lower environmental impact. Supercritical CO2 is non-toxic, non-flammable and can come from industrial by-products, making processes cleaner and more sustainable.

Improved efficiency: A consultant’s specialist knowledge can lead to process efficiency optimizations. Supercritical fluids have high diffusivity and low viscosity, which can increase mass transfer rates and potentially reduce processing time and energy consumption.

Highly Selective Processes: An expert consultant can fine-tune supercritical fluid process conditions such as temperature and pressure to achieve high selectivity in extraction and purification. This can be particularly important in the pharmaceutical and food industries, where pure, high-quality products are required.

Cutting-Edge Technology: Supercritical fluid technology is at the forefront of innovation in various industries, from pharmaceuticals to materials science. Working alongside a consultant in this field offers the exciting opportunity to participate in the latest technological advances and contribute to groundbreaking research and development.

Supercritical fluid technology offers a blend of fascinating scientific principles and practical, industry-changing applications, making collaboration with an expert in the field a truly stimulating experience.
