Atina has a complete structure for the extraction of essential oils - vats for pilot scale, semi-industrial and industrial steam extraction; a vacuum distillation tower, a molecular distiller and a pilot unit for Supercritical CO2 extraction.

In addition, it has a sophisticated extractor-evaporator and a diverse set of complementary accessories for various extraction methods. Extracts are offered according to customer specification. For dry plant extracts, Atina has a spray-dryer that can be used both at product development stage and at commercial production scale.


For producition of vegetable oils, Atina has a variable speed press, which combines high pressure with low process temperature. This preserves the content of polyphenols, unsaturated fatty acids, phytosterols and other components of the natural raw material.

Atina uses only environmentally friendly extraction processes based on steam, pressure, ethanol and water, without using organic solvents derived from petroleum.

Our equipment, processes and products are constantly monitored by our own Microbiological Laboratory, ready to detect microorganisms, as well as to evaluate the bactericidal and antimycotic potential of the natural assets generated in our innovation projects.

Our production, packaging and storage processes are periodically verified by quality assurance so as to maintain the demanding standards vital to the delivery of a product that complies with international market requirements.

Atina's Quality Control Laboratory is equipped to analyse the physical-chemical composition of our extracts, essential oils and fixed oils.
