Carbon dioxide is a gas consisting of one part carbon and two parts oxygen and is considered a trace gas in the atmosphere at around 400 ppm. Carbon dioxide's highest risk factor in an industrial workplace is that it is an asphyxiant that displaces oxygen from the atmosphere which can lead to hypoxia. Hypoxia occurs due to low levels of oxygen in body tissues and can cause confusion, difficulty breathing, rapid heart rate and can be life-threatening.
CO2 is an important heat-trapping gas that comes from the burning of fossil fuels, wildfires, and volcanic eruptions. It is a necessary component to Earth since plants use it to produce carbohydrates during photosynthesis. It is harmless at normal levels. It's main uses are: to manufacture other chemicals, food manufacturing and storage, and more.
Type: Nondispersive infrared (NDIR)
