The Concentration of O2 and CO2 Storage

Oxygen in the air can not be completely removed from the atmosphere, due to the presence of oxygen is necessary to keep the course of normal metabolism. Below 1-3% oxygen, many commodities were damaged. Similarly, the concentration of CO2, the tolerance limit commodity to these gases vary.
