CARBO Kohlensäurewerke GmbH & Co. KG in Bad Hönningen demonstrates that there are many more ways to use carbon dioxide (CO2) than just carbonating beverages. Thanks to its own CO2 source in the volcanic Eifel region, this innovative company from Northern Rhineland-Palatinate has top-quality raw materials at its disposal. Only food-grade carbon dioxide (E290) is used for the food industry. Alongside carbon dioxide, CARBO also sells dry ice as well as technical and medical gases.
Moreover, CARBO also develops customer-specific CO2 applications and environmentally friendly cleaning and pest control solutions using only natural carbon dioxide direct from the source. The CARBOblaster® ultra-compact dry ice blaster is ideally suited to removing stubborn stains from a variety of surfaces.
The protection of stored products represents another pillar of the company’s business: the disinfestation systems developed by CARBO, available as horizontal autoclaves or in silo form, can be utilized to fully remove pests from dry natural substances using just natural carbon dioxide and pressure.
