An apparatus capable of being used for the separation of solutes dissolved in a gaseous solvent is described. In one aspect, the apparatus includes a bed of sorbent in a container, a device which allows the gaseous solvent to pass through the bed of sorbent in a first direction, a device which allows the pressure of the gas to increase and/or the temperature of the gas to decrease, and a device which allows the gaseous solvent to pass through the bed of sorbent in a second direction. In another aspect, the device is capable of allowing the bed of sorbent to be contaminated by the solute and also be regenerated in situ.
