Hydrodynamic cavitation applied to natural product extraction from biological resources is the enabling technology of the bioeconomy. The study identifies the main economic and technical advantages of this relatively new natural product extraction route. Economic benefits chiefly originate from the low cost of manufacturing, low capital expense and superior product quality. The main technical benefits originate from the lack of noxious emissions, ease of scale-up, and highly controllable conditions affording lot-to-lot product consistency. We conclude suggesting arguments for which cavitation technology will be used both by incumbent companies, as well as by new entrants in the natural product market.
