How Corn Oil is Extracted from the Corn

Oil is being pressed from the germ using a heated screw press, which can yield as much as 50 percent of the germ oil. Then the pressed oil should be extracted in the corn oil extraction plant,  the remaining oil is stripped from the "press cake" with the solvent hexane, a volatile by-product of gasoline production. (Hexane is introduced to the cake bed with an exposure time as brief as possible so that hexane residual in the oil will be limited.) The corn oil in the hexane solution is heated to vaporize the volatile solvent, which is captured as a condensate and used again. Then the heat expelled and hexane extracted oils are combined as crude corn oil; the remaining cake is processed for livestock feed.
