Carbon Dioxide Gas Safety

A potential asphyxiation hazard exists when carbon dioxide (CO2) gas is dispensed from tank cars, cargo tanks, and portable containers to carbon dioxide supply systems at beverage manufacturing sites. 

Carbon dioxide gas concentrations of 100,000 parts per million (ppm) or more can result in carbon dioxide poisoning, causing unconsciousness or death. Lower concentrations may cause headache, sweating, rapid breathing, increased heartbeat, shortness of breath, dizziness, mental depression, visual disturbances, or shaking.
