A revolution in molecular extraction

High value extracts

Ligar’s polymers make it possible to extract specific molecules from a wide range of liquids including oils, juices, alcohols, liquidised plants and water. Flavours, aromas and medicinal compounds are ideal targets.

Contaminant removal

Contaminants such as heavy metals, pesticides and organic toxins can be removed instantly from liquids using single pass processes.  Many of our polymers are food-safe, meaning that contaminants can be removed from fluid foods as well as from waste water.

Extraction systems

Or polymers come as beads, filter plates or powders and are used in industry-standard systems.  Large volumes of liquid can be processed, with the target molecules being recovered from the polymer for resuse or disposal.
