Our mission is to change the industrial use of solvents. We are developing and producing novel green biosolvents for use in extraction, biocatalysis and life sciences, contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
Conventional technology production is based on the use of petroleum-based solvents. These solvents are toxic, flammable, explosive, volatile and cause air pollution. The NADES Design team overcomes this obstacle and offers a completely sustainable and innovative approach to manufacturing novel green solvents and green solvent-based products.
Our products are 100% green bio-solvents called natural deep eutectic solvents (NADES) and plant-based extracts in NADES solvents. NADES fully comply with the principles of green and sustainable technologies.
The physicochemical properties of NADES depend on their composition, which makes them the designed solvents. It is possible to design optimal NADES for specific applications.
NADES SOLVENTS PRODUCTS
The NADES Design team offers an innovative approach to the production of NADES solvents. The general characteristic of NADES are the following:
The cost of NADES is comparable or even lower than conventional solvents.
Sustainable production with 100% atom economy production.
Chemical and thermal stability.
Non-volatile and non-flammable.
Low toxicity and biodegradability.
Possible to adjust the physico-chemical properties to the specific purpose.
NADES itself could have biological activity, which can also be fine-tuned.
PLANT EXTRACTS PRODUCTS
The NADES Design team offers a completely sustainable and innovative approach to plant-based cocktails in NADES solvents.
Those solvents are highly versatile and easily tunable. They are prepared from natural components, mostly plant metabolites, which ensure a natural environment for various biomolecules. Because of these specific properties, those solvents can capture the most valuable plant metabolites to obtain extract with unique phytochemical properties.
NADES-based plant extracts are generally characterised by the following features:
High active ingredient loading.
Prolonged shelf life.
Enhanced biological activity.
Enhanced permeability, bioavailability & therapeutic action.
Acceptable sensory properties.
As part of our portfolio, we offer the service of designing NADES solvents and NADES-based products according to customer requirements and needs and the ability to solve their problems in production, such as insolubility and instability of biomolecules.
