ASCO offers innovative dry ice technologies on a flexible rental basis

Update : 13th April, 2021

The company ASCO Carbon Dioxide LTD has been offering individual solutions for dry ice production worldwide for decades. With "ASCO CAREFREE", the CO2 specialist has now successfully launched a completely new rental solution for dry ice production technologies. This is possible thanks to the state-of-the-art "ASCO i-Series technology", which even allows pay-per-use options. Dry ice, recently also called "white gold", is currently the talk of the town as it guarantees an uninterrupted cold chain down to -79°Celsius (-110°F) when shipping COVID19 vaccines worldwide.

The number of customers demanding individual solutions for their dry ice logistics is raising. To facilitate market entry, ASCO now offers "ASCO CAREFREE". True to the motto "You produce, We invest", ASCO provides flexible dry ice production capacities on a rental basis with full service and maintenance. Rentals can be selected between a calculable fixed price or a "pay per use" variant.

COVID19 pandemic creates challenges

The requirements of dry ice producers in general and, since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, of pharmaceutical and logistics companies in particular, are clear. Producing and packaging large quantities of dry ice in a very short time frame is the biggest task. Additionally the dry ice must be fresh and of high quality to achieve optimal cooling effects over the longest possible time. However, when companies rely on delivered dry ice, they have little control over quantity and quality because dry ice sublimates through a natural process. When suppliers initially pre-produce and deliver the dry ice, it means that dry ice loses quantity and quality due to the time factor alone.

For these reasons, the trend worldwide is increasing towards an own in-house dry ice production. In order to make it easier for customers to start producing their dry ice, including all the associated benefits, ASCO Carbon Dioxide LTD has launched the innovative "CAREFREE" solutions. Fabian Weber, Director Marketing & Communications of ASCO Carbon Dioxide comments: "With the ASCO CAREFREE rental solutions we are now even more flexible towards the customer to realize their own dry ice production. Due to the Corona situation, dry ice has moved into the focus of many industries as a highly efficient cooling medium. We want to take away the financial pressure of investment costs and make it as easy as possible for interested parties to produce their own dry ice".
