We associate carbon dioxide with global warming and climate change – factors that threaten our very existence on Earth. It’s easy to assume that a carbon dioxide shortage would be a good thing, but in recent years the depletion of this gas has caused an onslaught of issues for the industries that rely on it for key elements of their supply chain. There simply isn't enough of it to satisfy the myriad of uses of this atmospheric gas. With global shortages on this rise, BCC Research has released a report looking at the facts of the CO2 shortage and how it stands to affect the global markets. If steps are taken to repair the kink in the supply chain, knock-on effects can be minimized.
