Inerting with CO2

Food-grade CO2 is highly suitable for deoxygenating and inerting liquid foodstuffs such as beer, wine, juices, oils and fats. The dissolved oxygen content in liquid foodstuffs has to be removed during the production process because it can affect their shelf life, organoleptic properties and nutritional value.

Advantages of inerting with CO2

The main advantages of inerting with CO2 are:

  • Elimination of oxygen in the tanks and transfer lines to avoid foaming
  • Control of fermentation
  • Control of quality

Why choose ACP CO2 for your inerting process?

    • Liquid CO2 with the highest quality and food safety programme

      ACP’s Food-Grade Quality Programme conforms to the European Industrial Gases Association (EIGA) and the International Society of Beverage Technologists (ISBT) regulations, and consists of:

      • State-of-the-art purification processes
      • Online quality monitoring and management in our production units
      • Regular analyses of final products, carried out by ACP and independent labs
      • Strict loading and unloading procedures
      • Rigorous traceability


      ACP’s Quality certifications:


      In co-development with some key customers, we went even further, beyond the already demanding requirements of the EIGA and ISBT regulations. In order to serve these customers even better, we developed a Safe For Food + programme with guaranteed 99.99% purification and the most stringent safety

      ACP’s special Safe For Food + programme:

      • Guaranteed 99.99% purification
      • Quality diagnosis/sample analysis
      • on every production day
      • of every single trailer shipment
      • Analysis of every single delivery
      • Sealing of every freight shipment
      • Separate logistics flow to avoid any risk of contamination
      • Individual seals are used to prevent product tampering

      Our Safe for Food + programme is an extremely rigorous quality and safety assurance programme.
