To provide a forum for the free flow of information related to beverage gases and their use. Where questions, ideas and problems related to beverage gases and their utilization can be openly presented without apprehension, and with the expectation of receiving a satisfactory discussion, answer or solution. Where beverage gases manufacturers, beverage producers and other industry members can share mutually beneficial technologies, i.e., technical advantages, breakthroughs, concerns, etc., that will enhance the beverage industry, without disparaging direct and indirect competitors or others in the beverage gases and beverage industry.
The objectives / goals of the committee include:
To that end, here are the latest activities of the Beverage Gases Technical Committee.

Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.— Andrew Carnegie
In the last two years, the committee has published the following documents:
In addition, the committee has developed an addendum to the Bulk CO2 Quality Guideline: "Vent gas return considerations during loading and unloading of CO2 tankers". This addendum will be included in the updated version of the Bulk CO2 Quality Guideline.

The Beverage Gases Technical Committee worked with the Beverage Institute by ISBT® and The Packaging School to develop the following courses:
Learn about Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen, Argon and Oxygen use in beverages. The course benefits individuals who use beverage gases to create products such as carbonated soft drinks, oxygenated water, argon systems in wine processing, nitrogen for headspace control and pressurization, ozone generation, and oxygen in brewing and wastewater processes.
Argon, Nitrogen, and Oxygen — gases in the air surrounding us — are colorless, odorless, tasteless, and non-irritating. They are also used in a wide variety of markets and applications within the food and beverage industry. This course was created to give you an understanding of their history, properties, purity requirements, hazards, safety precautions, and more.
In order to supply beverages, we must have ingredients. Without them, a beverage cannot exist. There are different types of beverages, and, naturally, these different types have different ingredients. This Beverage Ingredients course offers a deep dive into understanding the principles of the chemistry, manufacturing, quality guidelines, and applications of the most common ingredients in beverages we consume.
The CO2 module was developed in conjunction with the Beverage Gases Technical Committee.
