Enhance Fresh Produce Storage Life

Ethylene Removal Solutions from White Air


Enhances storage life of fresh produce maintaining peak condition and fresh appearance.

The storage life of fresh produce and vegetables can be greatly reduced if certain criteria are exceeded in the storage period. The criteria we are concerned with to improve storage and shelf life is the presence of ethylene in the store and its affects on fresh produce.

For vegetables and fresh produce the presence of ethylene in various amounts can have small effects to extremely damaging ones. The effects we are most concerned about are loss of colour from ethylene induced chlorophyll loss, increased respiration leading to dehydration and increased demand for cooling to maintain temperature and the last but not least is the increased incidence of disease and fungal spores in the store due to the increased stimulation of spore development by ethylene. We have a organic process that can reduce the above effects of ethylene in the storage or packing environment, it will improve the quality and shelf life of fresh produce at a very low unit cost .

This technology will also allow you to demonstrate to your customers other attributes sustainable integrated management solutions for your business, lower waste, reduced Co2 emissions due to lower cooling requirements , increased food safety by reduction of Salmonella, Listeria and E Coli . This technology has very low energy and maintenance costs and over the lifetime of the machine will give extremely low running costs over other technologies being used in this sector .
