|Carbon dioxide is given off by many fermentation processes (wine, beer, etc.) and is a major component of flue gas.
High concentrations in the air cause a deficiency of oxygen with the risk of unconsciousness or death.
Check oxygen content before entering area.
There is no odour warning even when toxic concentrations are present.
Other UN classification numbers for transport are: UN 1845 carbon dioxide, solid (Dry ice); UN 2187 carbon dioxide refrigerated liquid.
