Arela Chemicals is meeting the need for low cost and sustainably produced CO2 in Ghana. Bottlers of carbonated beverages in Ghana pay 10X more than bottlers in Europe and United States because it must be either imported or manufactured by combusting diesel, which itself is imported. Our manufacturing process converts a feedstock agricultural residue into biogas, a 50:50 mixture of carbon dioxide and methane. The CO2 is separated from the raw biogas and purified to food grade quality. The methane component is converted to electricity that is then used to meet 100% of the electrical demand of the manufacturing plant, thereby enabling off-grid operation. Excess methane is compressed and used to fuel the logistics fleet that collects the stover and distributes carbon dioxide to customers.
