CO2 is also a distiller’s grains co-product that results from the fermentation process of corn or wheat. Zernoff captures CO2 emissions that would otherwise be vented into the atmosphere. The CO2 captured during this process is regarded to be as high grade, with a concentration of up to 99%, unlike CO2 from coal plants.
Our plant produces annually 5 000 metric tons of CO2 regarded as high grade and after some minor processing to remove the small amounts of impurities, the pure CO2 stream is sold to the merchant markets for use in beverage production and certain technical uses as well as dry ice.
These markets include the manufacturing of soft drinks, beer, champagne, frozen foods and multiple industrial uses such as grain fumigation, pH reduction of municipal water and effluent, welding, metallurgy, rubber manufacturing and chemical production, just to name a few.
Zernoff’s team is especially focused of the quality of production and timely delivery to our clients. Our CO2 is used by biggest local beverage brands.
