FeyeCon presents Aerogels

AEROGELS - NEXT GENERATION INSULATION

Aerogels are world’s lightest solid materials and offer incredibly diverse and useful properties. Aerogels are an organic material and consist largely of air. They can be hydrophobic (water repelling) and come in many different forms for multiple applications. Aerogels were developed in the early 1930s and were first used by NASA to insulate the Mars Pathfinders. Until now Aerogels have not become mainstream insulation materials due to  high production costs linked to the long drying time needed to create the aerogel using conventional drying techniques. We believe this is all about to change. FeyeCon has reduced production time by a factor of 8 and significantly improved product quality.

EFFECTIVE INSULATION 

We believe our Aerogels are the ideal insulator for homes, containers, oil piping and cars. They have a very low thermal conductivity and excellent fire resisting properties. Using Aerogels saves a huge amount of space: the same insulation rate can be achieved with less then a third of the material.

CLEAN UP OIL SPILLS

Aerogels can be made hydrophobic (water repelling) and lipophilic (attracting fatty substances). When oil spills occur, Aerogels clean up the oil in a matter of minutes. They function as a sponge that absorbs the oil, not the water. Oil spills cause huge ecologic damage and current cleaning methods are not sustainable (e.g. burning or dispersants). When using Aerogels, oil is cleaned up quickly and both Aerogel and oil can be reused after salvaging. 

LIGHTWEIGHT FILLER

Aerogels come in different shapes and sizes. Granular and powdered Aerogels can be added to an array of different materials, transferring their beneficial Aerogel properties to the end product. We are currently investigating the possibilities off adding Aerogels to building materials such as glass and concrete. 

COSMETIC APPLICATIONS

Aerogels can even be used in cosmetic products. It absorbs oil and moisture - useful properties for cleaning products. Other examples are their use as a matting and brightening agent or as a thickener.

The Secret Behind Natural and Effective Cosmetics

Nature provides us with beautiful ingredients for the cosmetics industry. The question is, how to utilize those ingredients in an affordable and sustainable way without compromising their efficacy? FeyeCon uses CO₂ to harvest, protect and formulate these ingredients. Ensuring they pack as much power as possible, just as nature intended. Our processes ensure a high yield, leading to significant cost-savings in addition to superior product quality. 

 

Harvest: Powerful Ingredients

100% Pure, Natural and Organic Extracts

CO₂ is one of the few solvents that is certified organic. We use it as a safe, non-toxic, and effective extraction medium. After extraction it evaporates completely, leaving behind pure extracts virtually identical to their natural origins. Because CO₂ technology is versatile and tunable we offer selective extraction, isolation and separation of specific compounds. Due to the extracts’ improved quality, one of the main benefits is that less of the ingredient needs to be added to the end product, to achieve the same or even better result.  

 

Protect: Increasing Shelf Life and Stability

High Yield Encapsulation Technology

Many natural compounds are sensitive to light, oxidation and/or heat. FeyeCon protects these valuable ingredients by transforming them into stable powders. Additionally, we use CO₂ (micro-) encapsulation technology to coat actives, preventing them from degradation. Our tailor-made coatings ensure that powders are stable in both aqueous and non-aqueous formulations. Our technology provides 100% yield, meaning no losses of valuable active ingredients during processing.

 

Formulate: Getting the Most Out of Your Ingredients

With CO₂ (micro-) encapsulation and micronization we do not only improve stability and shelf-life. We also expand and improve formulating options.

Smart Coatings: With the help of micro-encapsulation we prevent unwanted reactions between ingredients or mask unpleasant odors. Our custom-made coatings incorporate triggers to release ingredients. These can be based on moisture, temperature, pH, erosion, friction, or have a controlled release feature. The different triggers ensure that an ingredient does its work in the right place at the right time.

Controlling Particles: By controlling particle size and morphology we control the behavior of actives to improve their bioavailability and delivery. We increase the uptake of compounds to the skin, allowing you to decrease the percentage of actives necessary in your end product. 

 

Texturize: Unparalleled Versatility 

Cost-Saving Micronization Technology

Fluffy and airy or thick and luxurious. Different cosmetic products require different textures. Market research has proven that the valuation of products are directly linked to touch and feel. Not just the efficacy. FeyeCon has created unparalleled sustainable and efficient processes for supplying customized textures for your products, without compromising between exceptional texture, product efficacy or green chemistry.

FeyeCon combines widespread expertise in fat & oil ingredients with experience in clean and sustainable CO₂-based processing technologies. With CO₂ we extract, refine, modify and formulate fats & oils for a variety of products. FeyeCon offers turnkey solutions for obtaining clean, healthy and effective products, without compromising between costs, quality or sustainability.

1. Extraction of Oils & Fats: 100% Pure and Natural Extracts

CO₂ is one of the few solvents certified organic. Some conventional extraction methods require a purification step due to traces of solvents. Others use heat to extract, compromising the extract’s quality. FeyeCon’s CO2 extraction method offers the low temperature and non-toxic alternative. After extraction CO2 evaporates completely, leaving pure extracts identical to their origins. Because CO₂ technology is versatile and tunable we offer selective isolation of specific compounds, otherwise hard or impossible to obtain. Moreover, our methods are used to valorize waste, ensuring your by-products are not simply thrown away.

2. Oil Refining: Breakthrough Cold Processing

FeyeCon’s clean CO2-based processes for oil refining offer the environmentally-friendly opportunity as they operate with no chemicals, on low temperatures (c.a. <40⁰ C) and therefore prevent unwanted reactions. The resulting product boasts improved quality and increased shelf-life due to enhanced stability. To find out more about FeyeCon's oil refining processes, click here.

3.  Oil Modification

Upgrading Oils with Unique CO2 Fractionation Technology

FeyeCon is one of the few companies in the world that uses the novel CO2 fractionation technology for upgrading oils. By separating the different types of fatty acids present in the oil, we offer tailored processes for desired compounds. This is possible due to the tunability of our CO2 technology. Additionally, the process is clean and gentle, operating under low temperatures in an inert atmosphere, preventing the oxidation and formation of trans-fats. This improves the health profile and performance of the oil. CO2 fractionation allows the creation of technology solutions for the next generation cosmetic, food and nutraceutical products with superior quality.

Improved Functionality: Enzymatic Trans-Esterification

Chemical esterification is one of the major reactions used in food industry to modify the physical and functional properties of natural fats and oils. Traditionally, this process occurs at elevated temperatures (~200⁰ C) or with the presence of enzymes which make the process not very efficient. Instead, FeyeCon offers the possibility to eliminate those harmful/inefficient conditions by introducing CO2-assisted esterification. At considerably lower temperatures we use CO2 as an inexpensive, non-toxic solvent that does not leave any residues in the final product. In that way FeyeCon’s process improves the utility of edible oils for a variety of applications.

Texturizing Fats: Innovative Micronization Methods

Our CO₂ micronization technology is the environmentally-friendly method for creating three-dimensional porous particles from fats and waxes, delivering an array of textures. The powders are stable, free-flowing and easily dispersed into a final application mixture. Furthermore, formulation is simplified and energy efficient, thanks to the low temperature mixing.

Our CO₂ micronization technology is the environmentally-friendly method for creating three-dimensional porous particles from fats and waxes, delivering an array of textures. The powders are stable, free-flowing and easily dispersed into a final application mixture. Furthermore, formulation is simplified and energy efficient, thanks to the low temperature mixing.

4. Formulating Fats & Oils: Improved Shelf-life via Encapsulation

With our CO₂ micro-encapsulation process, FeyeCon successfully protects valuable fat & oil ingredients without altering their functional properties (e.g. nutritional value, bio-availability) even upon further processing such as UHT or steam. Contrary to traditional methods, our mechanism results in a well-protected ingredient with an extended shelf-life. Additionally, the technology enables increased concentration for volatile oils, flavours and nutraceuticals. To find out more, click here

TEXTILE, LEATHER AND FIBER

The use of chemicals in the textile industry and the pressure it puts on our fresh water reserves pose significant problems. FeyeCon has solved these problems with its game changing CO₂ technology. Our processes not only uses less or no chemicals or water, they also consume less energy and are faster, which dramatically reduces production costs. 

WATER FREE DYEING & PROCESSING

Our most revolutionary achievement is our waterless textile dyeing process. Skeptics said it could not be done, but we have proven the contrary. With the help of launching partner Nike, our joint venture DyeCoo has successfully implemented the first water free dyeing process for polyester, steadily making the dyeing business a clean business. We are currently investigating water free processes for cotton, leather and other fibers like paper. 

WATER & CHEMICAL FREE CLEANING & STERILIZATION

In conventional dry cleaning processes harsh chemicals are used that are harmful for the environment and linked to serious health problems. Conventional wet cleaning consumes vast quantities of potable water. By using pressurized CO₂ the same cleaning results can be achieved but without toxic chemicals or the use of water. CO₂ has the unique ability to deactivate bacteria & contaminants and remove heavy oil-based soils, leaving virtually no secondary waste. These environmental and performance benefits translate into direct economic savings, including longer garment lifetime and lower utility consumption. Our joint venture CO2Nexus is working on commercializing these processes.
