Sustainability that everyone understands

08.05.2019

With ALIGAL 2 airmade® gas bottles for sparkling water dispensers, companies can make their commitment to an ecologically sustainable world refreshingly understandable – for their employees and their customers.

Climeworks, together with Carbagas (the Swiss subsidiary of the Air Liquide Group), is launching the ALIGAL 2 airmade® gas bottle for sparkling water dispensers – the first gas bottle to actively reduce the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere by removing more CO2 than is used for the production of sparkling water.

Many sustainability measures are very complex and difficult for many to grasp. However, CO2 reduction measures are most effective when they are understood and implemented by everyone – customers, employees and corporate management alike.

This is precisely what the ALIGAL 2 airmade® gas bottle contributes to. Sustainability becomes part of everyday life, it can be grasped and drunk: through CO2, which is captured from the air and reused.

In short: with every glass of water that is carbonated with the ALIGAL 2 airmade® gas bottle, CO2 is removed from the atmosphere. Not only is the amount of CO2 contained in the gas bottle captured from the air and fed in liquified form into the Carbagas supply chain to be reused, but the same amount of CO2 is also turned into stone underground in Iceland.

A glass of water might be a small contribution. But together, these small contributions can have a big impact. On the one hand by making sustainable changes to everyday working life, and on the other hand by making Carbon Dioxide Removal known to everybody, which in turn will make it possible to carry out on a larger scale in years to come.

In Hellisheidi, Iceland, the same amount of CO2 is additionally captured from the air and turned into stone underground.

The ALIGAL 2 airmade® gas bottle is currently only available in Switzerland. A roll-out to the DACH region is planned for 2020.
