Bio-oil is often extracted from biomass using liquid solvent or supercritical carbon dioxide. However, extraction using these methods has several disadvantages. In this study, expanded hexane with carbon dioxide is examined as a new extraction solvent. The objective of this study is to develop a new technique for the extraction of bio-oil from biomass using expanded hexane with carbon dioxide; rice bran is used as the raw biomass. The extraction was carried out at 25— 27°C, 5.0—5.3 MPa, and 0.78—0.94 mole fraction of carbon dioxide in expanded hexane. At 26°C, 5.1 MPa, 0.87 of mole fraction of carbon dioxide, the oil yield was 1.6 times greater than that with normal liquid hexane because of the low viscosity and high permeability of expanded hexane. Furthermore, the phosphorus concentration in the extracted oil was 9.5 ppm. This was very low, compared with that in rice bran,in which it is approximately 350 ppm. This was because the solvent power of expanded hexane to extract neutral lipid decreased slightly while that to extract polar components decreased significantly. As a result, expanded hexane with carbon dioxide could extract the phosphorus-free bio-oil in high yield under mild conditions.
