Natural carbon dioxide

in food grade

This gas is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and non-flammable but is employed in environmentally neutral ways in the most-varied industrial areas and in households. Thanks to the use of the latest technologies, the highly purified liquefied carbon dioxide derived from the biogas fulfills the quality standards of international beverage and food manufacturers. The possible applications of highly purified, liquefied CO2 range from the production of carbonated soft drinks, the enrichment of the air in greenhouses to accelerate photosynthesis, all the way up to the production of dry ice.

Areas of use:

  • Wine production: cold maceration, and oxidation protection
  • Beverage industry: additive and carbon dioxide
  • Food sector: Antiseptic effect
  • Water treatment: pH value neutralization
  • Plant husbandry: Supporting photosynthesis
  • Cooling freight: Dry ice as a natural coolant

Nowadays, the term “CO2” is familiar to all, but not chiefly in a positive sense. We here at Tyrol Ice GmbH use highly pure CO2 in liquid form on a daily basis for our customers in wine production and the foods sector.

Up until now, we were forced to choose between environmentally questionable, chemically produced CO2 from Italy or natural CO2 from distant Hungary. With its first natural CO2 source in the Alpine region, Biogas Wipptal released us from this conundrum. In the future, we will now be able to forego the use of CO2 from ammonia production or lengthy, environmentally unsound transports. Biogas Wipptal has thus not only given all CO2-processing companies in the region a competitive advantage, it has also made an important contribution for a healthy environment.
