Despite technical progress, the production of dry ice from liquid CO² is still very ineffective. Only 40-45% of the liquid CO² actually becomes dry ice, the rest evaporates into the atmosphere. This is not only an expensive process for the dry ice producers, but also has a double impact on the environment, as it also leads to more transports by trucks on the road.

We at Pro Trockeneis were on a quest to make the manufacturing process more effective from the start and tried out a recovery plant back in 2011. As the recovery and our production machine were not ideally matched at that time, it was not worthwhile for us to invest in such a machine.

A few years later, however, we dared a second attempt and were immediately enthusiastic. Thanks to the recovery, we now use 80% of the liquid CO² and can thus produce a much higher proportion of dry ice with the same amount of raw material.

And we are not alone in our enthusiasm. The Aquila Triventek recovery has received TÜV certification in conjunction with our pelletizer.

We have also become a partner of Aquila Triventek in the German market.
