  • The challenges of transporting dry ice
    Increased consumption of temperature-sensitive products is accentuating the tension around supplies of dry ice. A component used in food industry processes and throughout the distribution chain, its transportation has become a strategic growth lever for CO2 producers. Storage time, economic competitiveness, operational performance and customer satisfaction are the challenges facing the niche CO2 sector in the future.
  • Logistics equipment central to performance
    To meet growing demand whilst guaranteeing a high quality service, the choice of transport equipment is a decisive matter. From specific formats for dry ice to the extension of the storage period to the manoeuvrability of the equipment, numerous parameters must be taken into consideration to optimise the transport of dry ice. We are developing, in the heart of the Loire region of France, secure modular logistics solutions able to meet the challenges of the different actors, both producers and users: specific roller configurations, fitting of rising platforms, shapes and interior volumes optimised for the CO2 industry, ease of storage.
  • The ATP, food safety and compliance with the GDP guidelines, our advantages when it comes to logistics
    Guaranteeing health and food safety, following strict protocols for use and simplifying the transport of temperature-sensitive products: all missions that are achievable thanks to our sandwich rotomoulding technology. Because we manufacture our own solutions, we are able to reconcile performance and complete control of the industrial processes.

Cryogenic refrigeration

What is cryogenic refrigeration?

Generally known as dry ice, solid carbon dioxide is available in different forms: sticks, pellets, slices or blocks. Its high cooling capacity (570 kJ/kg) and its very low temperature (-78,5°C) make it one of the refrigerants most commonly used for cold chain management. Its transformation by sublimation – the change from solid to gas – does not generate any liquid residue that could damage the products.

Cryogenic refrigeration is mainly used to transport frozen goods. However, there are some specific ways of limiting the diffusion of cryogenic cold so that this refrigerant can be used to transport chilled goods. The SIBER SYSTEM®, a patented Olivo technology does just this. Solid CO2 is obtained by decreasing the pressure of liquid CO2 to atmospheric pressure (1013 mbar). The cold is produced when the solid CO2 sublimates at -78.5°C.

Dry ice is difficult to store as it requires freezers operating at temperatures below -80°C with a system to evacuate the carbon dioxide gas if it sublimates. This is why it is often stored and transported in insulated containers.

ADR marking

In the highly regulated world of the transport of dangerous goods in Europe, the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) is the essential reference. To ensure the safety of the transport by road of dry ice, users must comply strictly with the standards of the ADR.

Problem: Dry ice can create dangerous atmospheres requiring particular attention during transport.

Solution: The user must place distinctive markings on insulated containers larger than 1 m³, clearly indicating the presence of dry ice. This applies both to BAC insulated containers transporting loads of dry ice and to refrigerated ROLL containers using dry ice as the refrigerant.


  • Total compliance: compliance with the ADR standards ensures total compliance, guaranteeing the safety of operators logistics throughout the logistics chain.
  • Raised awareness: ADR marking is not just a matter of regulatory compliance, but is also intended to raise awareness among users and transport operators of the safety requirements relating to the handling of dry ice.

Do not forget to check if there are any specific obligations in your country. The full text of the ADR is available on the UNECE website.
