The mission of the Beverage Gases Technical Committee is to provide a forum for the free flow of information related to beverage gases and their uses; a place 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. 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.
