Carbon dioxide (CO2) gas is formed from the combination of two elements: carbon and oxygen. CO2 gas has a slightly irritating odor, is colorless and heavier than air. It freezes at -78.5 °C to form carbon dioxide snow. Carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere by chemical and oil and gas operations can be captured, purified, liquefied. Air Liquide Canada offers carbon dioxide in different modes of supply (bulk, cylinders, dry ice) for use in many industries and applications.
