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. A number 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

Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

Carbon dioxide may be taken from natural wells and gas reservoirs which often contain a proportion of naturally occurring carbon dioxide, produced from the combustion of coal and hydrocarbons or captured as a by-product of fermentation processes (such as beer). It can also be reclaimed from waste gas produced during the production process of other chemicals such as ethylene oxide, alcohols and ammonia. Thus the geographic spread of the industry in part can be explained by the location of upstream supply sources. For example, a number of industry plants can be found co-located with other chemical facilities such as BOC's carbon dioxide facility located at Orica's ammonia plant at Kooragang Island, NSW. The same plant also supplies Air Liquide... purchase to read more

What is the Carbon Dioxide Production Industry?

Companies in this industry manufacture carbon dioxide in compressed, liquid and solid forms. Firms supply the carbon dioxide to a diverse range of customers, including industrial, medical and specialised users. Companies involved in the production of carbon dioxide merely as a by-product as part of their production process are not included in the industry.
