Uses of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Gas and Liquid Carbon Dioxide by Industry

Food & Beverage

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is used as a key cryogenic agent in cooling, chilling and freezing applications — protecting the taste and texture of your food products by maintaining proper temperature control. CO2 also reduces the need for preservatives in packaged products, and is an vital ingredient in carbonated beverages.


  • Beverage Carbonation
  • CO2 Snowing
  • Flour & Dough Cooling
  • Freezing & Chilling
  • Greenhouse Growing
  • Meat Mixing
Healthcare

Carbon dioxide USP is used for insufflation and is often combined with oxygen or air as a respiratory stimulant to promote deep breathing.


  • Respiratory Therapy & Pulmonary Function Testing
Oil & Gas

It is well known in the oil industry that carbon dioxide can be applied to your reservoir as a tertiary oil recovery method. At GGS, we can provide CO2 injectivity testing, pilot applications and full-field projects. We also provide CO2 services for energized fluid fracturing (fracing) in conventional reservoirs for both long-reach horizontal and vertical wells.


  • Enhanced Oil Recovery
  • Well Hydraulic Fracturing
Pulp & Paper

pH levels in industries like pulp and paper industry are controlled using Carbon Dioxide, it enhance pulp yield and wash brownstock and bleached stock.


  • Screening
  • Washing
Water & Wastewater Treatment

A safe alternative to mineral acids, carbon dioxide replaces chemicals used in pH reduction — lowering costs and improving plant safety and flexibility.


  • pH Control
Welding & Metal Fabrication

Carbon dioxide is most often mixed with argon as a shielding gas used to prevent atmospheric contamination of molten metal in electric arc welding processes.
