Belgium’s only dry ice producer overloaded as demand soars for vaccinesThe vaccines will need temperature-controlled thermal shippers that use dry ice, putting increased pressure on the supply chain.

Christophe Cuigniez, the commercial director of CRYONOMIC, says, "We have a lot of work and a lot of requests from different countries. The demand has even multiplied by 4 or 5... In some countries there is no dry ice available yet, they also have to install machines like these to locally distribute the vaccines in different countries."
