Running out of fizz: CO2 shortage in NZ
FoodProcessing, Other, 10/10/2022
New Zealand is reported to be facing a shortage in carbon dioxide for use in food processing. The shortage is driven by a reduction in local production capacity, which could impact the availability and prices of sparkling wine, ready-to-eat meals, meats and carbonated drinks. […] One solution that could be considered to address the problem is a technology that CSIRO has produced called Airthena, which is able to draw carbon dioxide from the air for use in carbonated drinks but it may not be widely available yet.
