What happens to the gas inside of a prison gas chamber after it
has done its job? How do they get rid of it?
Eric Peterson again -- My source says, that in practice, the gas
is simply metered out into the atmosphere in small amounts until it is
dissipated to the point of being non harmful. Cyanide dissipates in air
fairly evenly and becomes combined with other gasses to become harmless. I
asked if there were any written standards for this process, and he was going
to try to find some. When he does, I will let you know.
