Supercritical fluid technology can be seen as a green and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional. Current information on these topics is spread through different publications in different peer-reviewed journals. The editors were therefore of the opinion that this information should be gathered in an Ebook which presents some reviews on these topics which should be of major interest not only for the academia but also for the industry.
