Abstract
Mathematical modeling of lavender flower essential oil extraction with Supercritical CO2 (SC-CO2) was used in this study [1] and “Shrinking-Core Mass Transfer” equations was modeled with Finite Difference (FD) Method. The equations were applied implicit Crank-Nicolson method. Results obtained from numerical solution were compared with experimental results [1]. FD modeling was solved numerically with MATLAB R2018a software.

This work was supported by Research Fund of the Yildiz Technical University.
