CO2 cylinders used for supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) are filled with supercritical carbon dioxide generated by industrial plants that manufacture ammonia, refine petroleum, and so on. In other words, no new carbon dioxide is generated when operating SFC. On the other hand, we generate new carbon dioxide in the environment while treating the organic solvent waste from HPLC. Therefore, switching the separation method from HPLC to SFC reduces the quantity of CO2 greenhouse gas emitted, achieving one of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) proposed by the United Nations, “13. Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.” This brochure provides a collection of basic information about SFC.
