Our Story


It all started with an idea. Co-Founder, Dan Schneider was delivering Carbon Dioxide, and it became clear that the method being used to fill the large cryo-vac bulk Carbon Dioxide tanks was wildly inefficient and WASTEFUL to the customer. Dan then developed what would end up being the next best thing in bulk gas delivery and storage. The innovative Diverter Valve technology allowed Carbon Dioxide to be delivered to a customer faster, safer and with NO venting. It also eliminated the natural evaporation waste vented off by the large cryo-vac tanks when not in use. Tests showed this technology would save cryo-vac bulk customers 20-50% on their monthly CO2 bill.

Dan brought this technology to Mike Schutte who immediately saw the potential in Dan’s new idea. Mike brought his son, Brett Schutte into the fold and just like that, Green CO2 Systems was born. Dan provided the technology, Mike, the business knowhow, while Brett brought the technology to market and built our second family, customer by customer, brick by brick.

That was just the beginning… We have since grown to cover the front range of Colorado and expanded to Las Vegas and Oklahoma with ambitions to reach from coast to coast. From our delivery team providing exceptional customer experiences time and time again, to our forward-thinking R&D team staying ahead of the technological curve, and the ever-changing industry standards, Green CO2 Systems has grown as quickly as we have because we wake up every day challenging ourselves to find a better way to help make our customers’ businesses safer and more profitable.


And we’re not afraid to say it. Green CO2 Systems has built its foundation on treating our customers as we would want to be treated by our own business partners, like family. Since our inception in 2010, founders Dan Schneider, Mike Schutte and Brett Schutte agreed that Green CO2 Systems would always conduct business in the most fair and ethical manner, always doing what is best for the customer despite not always being what is in the best interest of the company. It’s family first and our customers are a part of our family.


Founded in Fort Collins, CO, Green CO2 Systems is an employee owned and operated company. We believe the best way to engage our team partners and help them take ownership of the Green CO2 Systems’ customer experience, is to give them ownership in the company. Our team treats the business like it’s their own and that’s because it is.


Carbon Dioxide is a known Greenhouse Gas that plays a massive role in our ecosystem. Efforts are being made around the world to reduce Carbon Dioxide emissions in an attempt to protect our environment and leave a healthy planet to our children. Green CO2 Systems is committed to helping businesses reduce their carbon footprint and play a part in the GREEN movement. By utilizing our ZERO-VENT Bulk CO2 Delivery and Storage systems, Green CO2 customers prevent tons of Carbon Dioxide from being needlessly purged into the atmosphere when being filled and not in use.
