Some people pour blood, sweat and tears into a project. Stephen Cochran, Cooper Parsons and Clinton Pruitt decided to go with lavender and liquid carbon dioxide.
The trio of Western Colorado Community College students designed and built a supercritical carbon dioxide extraction device, which extracts oil from a variety of substances, including lavender, hops, basil, rosemary, sunflower seeds and cocoa beans. They presented the finished product Friday afternoon on the outdoor plaza at the center of Colorado Mesa University, one of six locations on campus hosting the 236 student projects, papers and performances on display during the sixth-annual Student Showcase.
