Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
Carbon dioxide is a versatile gas that is used in a variety of processes and applications that take advantage of its main properties: reactivity, inertness and low temperature. Carbon dioxide is produced as either a high-pressure cylinder gas, a relatively low-pressure refrigerated liquid or in a solid form as dry ice. Several of its major uses are within the food and beverage industries, where it can be used to carbonate soft drinks, decaffeinate coffee, freeze food products and maintain ideal atmospheric conditions during the transportation of food or in food packaging. Therefore the yearly performance of the Carbon Dioxide Production industry often reflects developments within Australia's food and beverage sector... purchase to read more

Carbon dioxide has a range of applications, including its use as a refrigeration gas and as a blanketing gas for chemical reactions. It can also be used in other applications that require a chemically inert gas. Depending on the pressures and temperatures involved, carbon dioxide can be produced in three states: gaseous, liquid or solid (dry ice). It can also be manufactured with different purity levels, producing various grades.
Food grade carbon dioxide
Food grade carbon dioxide is used in the food processing and beverage manufacturing industries. For example, it is used in pressure beverage dispensing for bulk beer, cider and post-mix systems. As a result, IBISWorld expects food grade carbon dioxide to command the largest share of industry revenue... purchase to read more
