Ice Technology Ltd. located at Roche Caiman, is the provider of solid and liquid Carbon Dioxide (CO²). Having come to SIB initially with his project, Mr. Emmanuel Etienne met with the SIB team again for an after-care visit now that his business is operational.
Mr. Etienne opened Ice Technology Ltd. in August 2018 originally as a supplier of 99.99% pure dry ice. This is a solid form of CO² used primarily as a cooling agent in cold storage and transportation. The team learnt that now, a year later, his biggest return is from Liquid CO² which he refills into gas cylinders. Today he is the proud supplier of these two products to two large suppliers in Seychelles, for bottling and cold storage purposes.
During the tour of the manufacturing plant, Mr. Etienne highlighted the importance of safety in such a work environment. He has been on the media a few times to sensitise the public about the use, safe use, transportation and maintenance of carbon dioxide cylinders and safe use of other chemicals.
Showing no intention of slowing down, Mr. Etienne’s vision for the future is for Ice Technology Ltd. to be a one-stop shop for high purity gases in Seychelles, extending his services to hospitals and clinics, food processing companies, distributors, industrial cleaning business, and to theatres/conferences for special effects. This would mean possibly moving to a larger industrial area, and investing into reservoirs that can hold other high purity gases.
