The increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere has become a hot topic for environmentalists, health professionals, and the general public. But what about the CO2 used for industrial purposes, such as in construction or the food and beverage industry? This industrial gas serves a vital role in our everyday lives, but what level of CO2 is dangerous?
This article explores the crux of this matter, understanding the nature of CO2 as a greenhouse gas, its effects on human health and the environment, and how it impacts indoor and outdoor air quality. We also aim to shed light on CO2 exposure limits set out by regulatory bodies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the measures one can take to monitor and control dangerous levels of this critical gas.
