Maybe I'm old & don't understand these things but I thought we (the world) were trying to cut down on CO2 production.
The volcano in Iceland is turning out 10,0000 tons of CO2 a day .and now we have another one In La Palma probably putting out the same amount . So why should we all buy electric cars ,another con trick ?

In case this isn’t sarcasm - the point is we can control the burning of fossil fuels for things like cars, but obviously not for volcanoes and we should be cutting down any contributions we make to greenhouse gasses.And before anyone says it I know electric vehicles aren’t perfect (for various reasons) but little bits will add up.
There was a similar CO2 shortage a few years ago when all the processing plants decided to shut down at the same time for maintenance due to high gas prices. We use CO2 gas for incubating cells and dry ice for shipping various products.Funnily enough we really struggled in the last shortage but have had no problems getting hold of either this time.
If the need is just to remove oxygen from food packaging then surely it could be 'burned off' with a bit of methane added directly to the gas supply line feeding the packaging machine to leave mainly nitrogen, CO2 and H2O vapour to fill the packet. Maybe a catalytic converter somewhere?
