Although chemical methods to remove dissolved gases is common, organizations may consider the potential environmental impact these chemicals might have. Environmental considerations may include disposal of waste streams, handling and storage of chemicals used to control gases. One alternative that may help reduce the impact of a full chemical treatment program is membrane contactor technology.

Kirin Beer has been successfully using Liqui-Cel® Membrane Contactors for CO2 and O2 removal in their Okayama, Hokuriku, and Kobe Japan facilities.
