Dry Ice Blasting will eliminate the need for using caustics, solvents and other harsh chemicals normally used in commercial and industrial cleaning. This means fewer Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions, less chemical exposure hazards to employees and reduce waste disposal. All of these factors result in a net positive effect on our environment. The majority of the contaminants removed with dry ice blasting can simply be swept up and disposed of in traditional waste receptacles. There is no added waste from the dry ice media.
Generally this relates to a huge cost savings for the typical end user. When dry ice blasting is utilized for restoration projects, the environmental impact is easy to see. Removing fire, soot and smoke damage from buildings and homes leaves no residue whatsoever, by contrast the use of soda and other blasting media results in a large waste stream of spent, contaminated media to be disposed of.
Dry ice blasting is simply the most environmentally friendly cleaning process currently available on the market!
Dry ice blasting is known by several names: dry ice blasting, dry ice cleaning, CO2 blasting, dry ice dusting, and even environmentally sustainable cleaning. Dry ice blasting is an efficient and cost-effective way for industries to maximize production capability and quality. Dry ice blasting is similar to sand blasting, plastic bead blasting or soda blasting where the media is accelerated in a pressurized air stream to impact a surface to be cleaned or prepared. But that's where the similarity ends.
Instead of using hard abrasive media to grind on surface (and damage it), dry ice blasting uses soft dry ice, accelerated at supersonic speeds, and creates a mini-explosion on the surface to lift the undesirable item off the underlying substrate.
