Carbon Dioxide Industrial

products-1Carbon dioxide is a colorless, odorless, non flammable gas that is formed by the burning of hydrocarbon with air, by the fermentation of liquids and as a by-product from chemical processes. It doesn’t sustain life and freezes at -78.5°C to form dry ice.

Supply
 All cylinders are equipped with a valve for gas and liquid withdrawal. Greencarbon supply bulk liquid CO₂ to the food and beverage industry.
