Rising energy prices lead to a shortage of carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbonic acid (H2CO3). The carbon dioxide used for carbonation is the basis for fizzy soft drinks or refreshingly sparkling beer. The drastic shortage is therefore becoming a problem for numerous beverage manufacturers. However, there is an alternative. Nitrogen can be used as a substitute gas in many production steps of beverage manufacture and thus alleviate the lack of CO2 and carbonic acid. With the help of Inmatec nitrogen generators, the gas can be generated directly on site in order to ensure the supply at all times.
