Not only for fever, but also for body cooling!

By K.A.

On some days, do you feel the temperature is unbearable and you must resort to air-conditioner?
However, what if you are outdoor and air-con is not an option. You can fan yourself but you will get more tired and sweaty…


Many of you might have already heard Cooling patch /cooling gel sheet / cooling band-aid and its function to absorb and disperse heat during fever.

Bio-CO2 For Greener Earth (Part 4)

Tag: CO2 ethanol food and beverage thailand zeolite

Would you support Eco-Friendly world? You can with Bio-CO2 !
By F.S.

Looking into ASEAN region, Thailand is a major producer of bio-ethanol in Southeast Asia.
The dependence on energy imports has been increasing with the country’s economic development.
Therefore, government of Thailand is promoting self-sufficient energy by encouraging ethanol production to ensure a stable supply of energy.

While conducting sales of our adsorbents (Zeolites) for dehydration equipment in the growing ethanol industry. 
We found that a large amount of unused carbon dioxide has been released to the atmosphere every year.
Based on hearings from customers, about 300 million tons of carbon dioxide are generated as by-product from ethanol fermentation process.
We believe that effective utilization of this carbon dioxide could contribute to: the reduction of greenhouse gases and the cost of bioethanol.

When we analyzed the quality of this carbon dioxide, we found that the crude gas had a high purity of 99.5%, which is finer to other sources like oil refining.
Although further refining is required, capital investment would be relatively low.
So, we could deliver reasonable price and high-quality carbon dioxide to customers.

Our investigation and study showing that the concept is becoming feasible. 
Next step: we are looking for partners who interested to carry out this project together.
No limitation of industry you’re from, we welcome anyone who want to live in a lovely sustainable planet.

In the final chapter, we would like to share our passion for this project, if you feel interested please follow us till the final chapter.

Bio-CO2 For Greener Earth (Part 3)

Would you support Eco-Friendly world? You can with Bio-CO2 !
By F.S.

Global warming, our breath. Many readers may have a bad impression of carbon dioxide. 
But on the other hand, carbon dioxide is also essential to our lives
Carbon dioxide is used as a foaming agent for carbonated drinks such as soda and ‘chuhai’ (“shōchū highball”). 
It is also used for dry-ice for cooling in-flight meals, ice cream and frozen foods.

Recently, carbon dioxide has been playing an active role in beauty and health fields, such as lotions containing carbon dioxide.
In the industrial field, it is used for rubber molding blasting and welding.
Now you know that carbon dioxide is critical to our lives.
Unfortunately, many of these are made from the by-products of oil refining.

If these products are of plant origin and can contribute to the prevention of global warming, consumers will be excited.

Then, what can we do in order to bring the product to market? 
In the next part, we will explain in detail about our startup activities in Thailand.

Would you support Eco-Friendly world? You can with Bio-CO2 !

By F.S.

Our mission is to continue providing new value to the world.
While considering a new project, we wanted to contribute to the prevention of global warming through our business.

I got an information from a friend in Indonesia about a company that uses carbon dioxide from bioethanol production by-product, for drinks and dry ice.
That was a hint for this project startup.
In ASEAN countries, many companies are producing bioethanol for fuel, from sugar cane and cassava as a policy to get out of dependence on oil. Demand for carbonated drinks is also growing.

So what are the issue for these industries?

Many beverage manufacturers use carbon dioxide for raw material as by-product of oil and natural gas.
Due to spread of COV-19, suppliers are forced to decrease their operation rate, and supply/demand balance of CO2 is tighten in the world.
Beverage manufactures are thriving to find supply during this pandemic.
The risk is threatening the industry, and manufacturers are trying to find new sources for CO2
On the other hand, the development of eco-friendly products is being actively promoted as a trend in the world. 
In fact, beverage manufacturers in Europe and the United States are also actively incorporating bio-fieondly and eco-friendly raw materials.

While proceeding our study, we focus on Thailand market.

Thailand is one of the world-ranked Ethanol producer and beverage manufacturers, mainly rely on CO2 from refineries industry.
In addition, a lot of CO2 is emitted from bio-ethanol fermentation process and Thai government wants to reduce total emission of CO2
The change of purchasing policy in beverage manufacturers occurred in Europe and United States is expected to happen in Thailand as “new normal”. 
So, I thought we can provide value to this industry by making effective use of CO2 from bioethanol. 
Therefore, we want to you to be prepared of ‘new normal’ in Thailand, which could happen in near future, by commercializing eco-friendly CO2 and building a stable supply system.

We believe our Bio-CO2 project would be the solution for this industry!

Inquiry and consulting are always welcome! Please feel free to share your interest.
