Dry ice shortage in Europe

Biocair secures dry ice supply amidst shortage



Throughout May and June 2018 there was a shortage of CO2 across Europe and the UK. Outages at major UK and EU sources have put the supply chain under immense pressure. Whilst our suppliers have managed to keep the situation under control so far it has recently become worse. CO2 supply is fundamental to dry ice production so without sufficient CO2 our suppliers cannot make enough dry ice to meet customer requirements.

We are pleased to inform our customers that as Biocair is 100% dedicated to serving the life sciences, we have been able to secure continued supply of dry ice.

We are activating contingency plans to cover the expected shortage period. If our level of supply or the time taken to establish normal supply changes, we will inform you. To assist with our contingency plans, we would request that if customers are able to supply their own Dry Ice this would be extremely helpful, enabling us to preserve our own stocks through this challenging period.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Account Manager or Customer Services.
