Carbon Dioxide

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colorless, odorless, and liquefied gas that can cause asphyxiation in high concentrations in enclosed spaces. At Ace Gases, we convert waste carbon dioxide gas from petrochemical processes into purified ISBT grade LCO2 using various purification processes. We see this as a social and corporate environmental responsibility to help reduce emissions into the atmosphere by converting waste gas into value-added products.

Carbon dioxide has widespread use in the food and beverage industry, where it is used for carbonated soft drinks, wine, and beer. It is also employed in food-freezing applications, such as frozen food and seafood. Ace Gases has obtained the Food Safety System Certification (FSSC 22000), an internationally recognized standard for food safety, for our LCO2 product. Additionally, our LCO2 is Halal-certified by Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (JAKIM), making it suitable for Muslim consumption.

In the metal fabrication industry, carbon dioxide acts as a shielding gas for welding and other applications, such as MIG and MAG welding. In the oil and gas industry, carbon dioxide is used for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) applications by injecting it into existing oil fields to improve oil displacement.

In addition to its uses in the food and beverage, metal fabrication, and oil and gas industries, carbon dioxide has a wide range of applications in various other fields. For instance, it is used as a refrigerant in refrigeration and air conditioning systems, as well as for fire extinguishing purposes in the fire protection industry. Carbon dioxide is also utilized in medical applications, such as for respiratory therapy and as a contrast agent in medical imaging.

In the agriculture industry, carbon dioxide is used to stimulate plant growth in greenhouses and as a fumigant for stored grains and crops. It is also utilized in the manufacturing of various chemicals, such as urea and methanol, as well as in the production of dry ice.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) can be supplied through various modes of delivery, depending on the specific needs of the customer. One common mode of supply is through the use of liquid tankers. These tankers are designed to transport large volumes of liquefied CO2 to the customer’s location, where it can then be stored and used as needed.

Another mode of supply is through the use of ISO tanks. These tanks are smaller than liquid tankers and are used for transporting smaller volumes of liquefied CO2. ISO tanks are often used for deliveries to more remote locations or for customers who do not have the infrastructure in place to receive larger tankers.

For customers who require even smaller volumes of CO2, cylinder delivery is often the best option. CO2 cylinders come in a range of sizes and can be delivered directly to the customer’s location. This mode of supply is commonly used in the beverage industry, where CO2 is used for carbonation.

In addition to these modes of supply, some customers may choose to install a vacuum-insulated evaporator (VIE) tank on-site. VIE tanks are designed for bulk storage of liquefied CO2 and can be used to supply CO2 to multiple locations within a facility.

Overall, the mode of CO2 supply depends on the volume of CO2 required, the location of the customer, and the customer’s specific needs. At Ace Gases, we offer a range of delivery options to ensure that our customers receive the right amount of CO2 in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.


Fire Suppression

Carbon dioxide is used as a fire suppression agent in areas where water is not a viable option, such as server rooms, museums, and archives.

Medical Applications

CO2 is used in medical applications as a respiratory stimulant, to diagnose conditions such as blood clotting disorders and pulmonary embolisms, and as a contrast agent in medical imaging.


Carbon dioxide is used in greenhouses to promote plant growth and increase yields.

Dry Cleaning

CO2 is used as a solvent in the dry cleaning industry, as it is a safe, non-toxic alternative to traditional solvents.

Oil and Gas Production

In addition to EOR applications, carbon dioxide is used in oil and gas production as a drilling fluid, a fracturing fluid, and a gas lift agent.

Environmental Applications

Carbon dioxide is used in carbon capture and storage (CCS) systems to capture and store CO2 emissions from power plants and other industrial sources, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

pH Control

Carbon dioxide is used to control pH levels in water treatment processes, swimming pools, and other applications where pH control is necessary.
