Transport and storage of CO2 refrigerated packaging in refrigerated vehicles and climate rooms.

Author(s) : Cemafroid

Type of article: Thematic file, Review

Summary

The implementation of a cold chain for the Covid-19 vaccines involves transport by refrigerated vehicles and storage in climate rooms of CO2 refrigerated packagings containing a large amount of dry ice.
During both the transportation and storage phases, dry ice sublimates directly into vapour, leading to the release of a gas of carbon dioxide into insulated truck body and climate room. This phenomenon represents a significant risk of asphyxia for employees likely to get into the vehicles and climate rooms.
It is important to well understand these risks and the related good practices in order to avoid potentially deadly accident.
