is getting into a hot market->Supercritical CO2 is becoming an important commercial and industrial solvent due to its role in chemical extraction in addition to its low toxicity and environmental impact. The relatively low temperature of the process and the stability of CO2 also allows most compounds to be extracted with little damage or denaturing. In addition, the solubility of many extracted compounds in CO2 vary with pressure, permitting selective extractions.
Supercritical carbon dioxide is used as the extraction solvent for creation of essential oils and other herbal distillates. Its main advantages over solvents such as hexane and acetone in this process are that it is non-toxic and non-flammable. Furthermore, separation of the reaction components from the starting material is much simpler than with traditional organic solvents, merely by allowing it to evaporate into the air or recycling it by condensation into a cold recovery vessel. Its advantage over steam distillation is that it is used at a lower temperature, which can separate the plant waxes from the oils. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supercritical_carbon_dioxide

Imperial Tobacco to snag U.S. e-cig lead thanks to deal
By Jilian Mincer, Martinne Geller and Anjuli Davies
NEW YORK/LONDON (Reuters) - When Imperial Tobacco Group Plc agreed Tuesday to buy a group of brands from Reynolds American Inc and Lorillard Inc as part of their merger, the British company insisted the assets include Lorillard's blu e-cigarette unit.
The brand gives Imperial, which will become the third-largest U.S. tobacco company overall, a big lead in the new and fast-growing U.S. electronic cigarette market where it now accounts for about 47 percent of market share. E-cigarettes are considered a crucial business for big tobacco companies, which have bought or developed their own brands in recent years to offset shrinking sales of conventional tobacco cigarettes.
Imperial, which already had an e-cigarette product called Puritane, hopes to build on blu's strong U.S. foothold worldwide, said Chief Executive Alison Cooper.
“When it comes to e-cigarettes, outside of the U.S. you haven’t got strong brands,” said Cooper. “The opportunity is to start getting the technology right with a great brand. "We do think it’s a great brand," she said. "The overall portfolio is what we’re pleased to have bought. It’s really the whole package.”
One source close to the deal talks said Imperial insisted that blu be part of the wider package of brands it was buying. Imperial will also acquire Reynolds' Kool, Salem and Winston brands as well as Lorillard's Maverick.
U.S. e-cigarette sales are expected to outpace sales of tobacco cigarettes by 2020, according to Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog, who said Tuesday’s deal has the potential to catapult the global vapor category, “which could be increasingly M&A-driven.”

Aside from what people typically associate with it — the act of altering one’s state of consciousness — cannabis also has myriad other practical and economical uses. But for generations now, fear-mongering, paranoia, and misinformation have forced its use to remain under the radar or completely out of the question. Now that the stigma surrounding marijuana and hemp is subsiding to some degree, scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs are finally getting the chance to put the plant to work. For decades, the marijuana plant — and its cousin, hemp — were demonized by a potent blend of big business and political propaganda, mostly because it presented a large threat to some of the established powers. We can look at films like Reefer Madness to see how the plant was portrayed at the time, and compare it to what we know now to see just how ridiculous the whole concept of prohibition has been — not to mention costly. Marijuana and hemp are not exactly the same, although they are very closely related. Essentially, hemp does not contain the psychoactive compound found in marijuana, THC. Both do come from the same plant family, and the two terms are generally used to differentiate between uses. For example, hemp is the term applied to cannabis when industrial uses are being applied, whereas marijuana is used to refer to medical or recreational use through smoking or ingesting. We all know that marijuana and hemp can be used to create clothing and edibles, but what about some of its lesser known applications? There are a lot, and most are just beginning to be explored by entrepreneurs and inventors. Some are already on their way toward widespread adoption. Here are six little known or unexpected uses for marijuana and hemp that may break into the mainstream in coming years. 1. Fuel Imagine piloting down the highway behind the power of cannabis! That’s right, similar to plants like corn, cannabis can be used to develop biofuels to power automobiles, generators, and really anything else you can imagine. The University of Connecticut has been hard at work studying whether or not the fuel is actually viable, and the results are showing that it indeed is. One of the major problem with current biofuel production is that it often takes more energy to create it than you get in the end, but cannabis may be able to change that. One more piece of good news: it won’t take much to get the cannabis biofuel industry started. “If someone is already growing hemp, they might be able to produce enough fuel to power their whole farm with the oil from the seeds they produce. The fact that a hemp industry already exists means that a hemp biodiesel industry would need little additional investment,” says professor Richard Parnas of UConn. 2. Batteries The way we think about how we store energy is transforming, and cannabis may be able to spur things along even faster. Alternet reports that researchers are finding that cannabis may lead the way to producing more efficient supercapacitors. The actual engineering is a bit complicated, but basically involves the creation of nanosheets from hemp fibers, in the same way scientists have been able to use graphene in the past. Hemp provides a huge advantage due to its inexpensiveness, as it can cost thousands of times less than graphene or similar materials. As hemp becomes more socially acceptable to work with, exploration into the potential technology should only increase in scope, and hopefully a viable technology will come out of it. 3. Nutritional Supplements Everyone is aware of edibles, and the idea of ‘magic brownies.’ Now the medical and recreational industries are pushing edibles further every day, with just about everything you can imagine now available in ‘medicated’ form. But for those who don’t want to get high, there are also a ton of hemp-based nutritional options out there, often more healthy than the alternatives. It turns out that hemp is quite healthy, and can be a solid source of protein and minerals when a part of a balanced diet. There are a ton of items available to bolster your daily regimen — from protein powders to hemp milk, hemp seeds, and even hemp oil to cook with. Hemp can provide vegetarians and vegans with another staple to their diets, and due to its versatility, it can be used in a ton of different ways. 4. Building Materials It’s possible that you may be charging your phone with hemp products, wearing clothes made from hemp products, and even eating cannabis products in the near future. How about also living in a structure created from hemp? Building materials are one of the most exciting products that can be manufactured from cannabis, as it would allow for people living in areas with little resources to access things needed for construction. Of course, this puts fear into the heart of timber companies, but we can all agree that saving some trees is probably a good thing. Not to mention that cannabis crops can be turned over incredibly fast compared to forests. Materials including concrete, plastic, wallboard, and even insulation can be made from cannabis, essentially all the stuff needed to build a house. Pipes can be fitted from hemp-based plastics as well, taking care of plumbing issues. Can you imagine being the first on your block to have a hemp-based house? 5. Livestock Feed Livestock require a lot of resources to raise. That includes food, land, water, and a host of other things. In fact, the amount of resources that it takes to raise animals like cattle oftentimes outweighs what farmers are able to get out of the animals in terms of meat or other sellable products. But cannabis may be able to help alleviate some of that by providing a cheap and plentiful resource for food and bedding for large animals. Many animals are now fed diets largely consisting of corn, which can be replaced with cannabis-based feed. This change would reduce costs and spare more food for people who need it, and also cut down on transportation needs, as cannabis can grow practically anywhere. Of course, convincing the general populace to eat cannabis-fed meat will be another issue to tackle. 6. Plastic Production Who would’ve thought that plastic can be manufactured from cannabis? Well, it can, just like it’s made from other plant matter. Not only that, but cannabis-based plastics are more easily recycled and degrade at a faster rate than traditional plastics. Other bioplastics are created from corn and soy, but hemp does provide distinct advantages over both of them in terms of strength and sturdiness. The wide-ranging use for bioplastics made from hemp cannot be understated. Everyday items like soda bottles and food packaging could easily be switched to hemp-based plastics, as well as things like piping, furniture, and even car parts. After a while, you’ll be seeing cannabis-based products everywhere you look.
