The dry ice blasting method is ecological because the dry ice is produced by cooling existing carbon dioxide. No new carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere during its production or use, so it does not cause an increase in the greenhouse effect. The use of solid carbon dioxide makes it possible to clean highly adhesive and resistant sediments without the application of aggressive chemicals based on organic dissolving agents, acids, or alkalis.
Gentle All Around
Dry ice blasting cleans surfaces gently and without causing damage. Another advantage of dry ice blasting is that the dry ice treatment using solid carbon dioxide produces no waste, as the dry ice almost immediately transforms into a gas and leaves the duct through the vent. An indispensable advantage of carbon dioxide is the fact that it is an inert and non-toxic gas.
