Carbon dioxide gas is produced from the combustion of coal or hydrocarbons, by fermentation of liquids and the breathing of humans and animals, and by volcanoes.

Carbon dioxide is at a low concentration in the atmosphere and acts as a greenhouse gas. Carbon dioxide is used by plants to produce carbohydrates. The photosynthesis process releases oxygen to the atmosphere.

Carbon dioxide gas is colorless and heavier than air and has a slightly irritating odor.

Freezing point is -78.5 oC where it forms carbon dioxide snow or dry ice.
