Controlled Atmosphere Stunning

CARBON DIOXIDE CONTROLLED ATMOSPHERE STUNNING

Controlling the harvesting process

At Praxair, we have years of industry leading experience in the use and handling of carbon dioxide for food processing. And we’ve used what we’ve learned to develop our new controlled atmosphere stunning systems for humane pig and poultry stunning. 

The multi-stage Controlled Atmosphere Stunning (CAS) stunning process has several welfare advantages:

  • Reliability
  • Animal welfare – carbon dioxide stunning is non-aversive and irreversible
  • Meat quality - minimising stress and the formation of blood spots
  • Improved working conditions and safe handling conditions for slaughterhouse staff
  • Savings due to a highly efficient process
