In the UK, the shortage of CO2

Fizzy drinks may not be enough

In the UK, there are only two plants for the production of carbon dioxide, and one is closed for maintenance, threatening to leave beverage producers without CO2.
"This is already cutting production," said Brigid Simmonds, head of the British Beer and Pub Association. She wrote to the producers of CO2 with a request to rectify the situation.
Demand for beer and carbonated drinks reaches a peak, as fans gather to watch football, as well as thanks to the hot weather.
Carbon dioxide is not just added to soft drinks, canned and bottled beer. It is also used in beer pumps in pubs and is additionally used for packing fresh meat and salads.
It produces ammonia plants that produce fertilizers. But as the demand for fertilizers reaches a peak in winter, producers often close in the summer to carry out repairs.
Currently, at least five CO2 producers in Northern Europe are closed, according to Gasworld, who first reported this.
Gasworld said that carbonated beverage producers are now "desperate," this is the biggest crisis of CO2 supplies over the past decade.
Stop the beer
The British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA), which represents the Brewers and 20,000 pubs in the UK, said that a shortage of CO2 is beginning to cause a stop in beer production, although she did not name specific companies.
Here, 82% of the beer consumed in the UK, which requires carbon dioxide, is produced. Said Miss Simmonds. She said that she wrote to the suppliers of CO2, and one manufacturer said that he would be able to return the limited production in operation in early July.
"You could have foreseen this, there is the World Cup, which is just as interesting in Germany as here," said Ms. Simmonds. "Why they did not foresee this, I do not know."
The BBPA also issued some recommendations to its members, reminding them that CO2 used in beverages, including beer dosing in beer pumps, must be food CO2.
Gavin Partington, CEO of the British Soft Drinks Association, said that soft drink manufacturers are "taking active steps to maintain customer service."
He said he was also negotiating with his suppliers and looking for alternative sources of CO2.
