Completely Environmentally Friendly
In addition to being clean and safe, it is also important to remember that dry ice is obtained as a byproduct of other industrial processes – i.e. it is made from reclaimed CO2. It does not produce CO2 or add CO2 to the atmosphere and therefore does not contribute to the greenhouse effect.
- Dry ice blasting is truly, and completely, environmentally friendly!
- Dry Ice Blasting is Clean and Safe
- Dry ice blasting has been approved by the EPA, FDA, and USDA as an acceptable cleaning method
- Dry ice blasting is safe to use with food processing equipment
- Dry ice blasting does not release harmful gases into the atmosphere
- Dry ice blasting does not generate secondary waste
- Dry ice blasting is safe and non-toxic (once particles impact the surface they dissipate into the atmosphere)
- Dry ice blasting reduces or eliminates employee exposure to (and corporate liability from) the use of dangerous chemical cleaning agents
Other cleaning methods can be toxic
- Sand, soda, or water blasting can leave toxic secondary waste to be cleaned up in addition to the toxic substrate
- Sand, soda, or water blasting can create downstream contamination that effects surrounding installations
- Soda blasting can kill surrounding vegetation
- Chemical and solvent cleaning methods are toxic, which creates toxic waste to be disposed of
- Workers are exposed to potentially harmful substances through the use of chemicals and solvents
