Control Ethylene in Your Produce Warehouse

control ethylene in your produce warehouse

Spoilage and waste are two of the worst enemies to your bottom line when you store, ship, or sell produce – and barring physical damage during transport, you’ll find there’s often a natural cause behind the issue. Ethylene gas is a colorless, odorless gas that’s emitted by mature plant matter – like picked produce – and it hastens spoilage, causing losses and serious quality reduction. In an enclosed space, like a produce warehouse, cold storage, or transport truck, ethylene builds up and affects your products. That’s why taking steps to control ethylene in your produce warehouse will go a long way to protecting your bottom line, and can even help you deliver a higher quality product. Luckily, there’s a simple way to control ethylene all along your process, from storage to transport. Airocide air purification makes it easy – discover the powerful answer to ethylene gas.

Invisible Till it’s Too Late

Ethylene gas can’t be seen or smelled, it can only be detected via testing. One telltale sign, though, is rapid ripening and spoilage in your produce. Ethylene is a volatile organic compound or VOC, a gas that reacts with other organic materials. In a closed space, it collects and silently spoils your fruits, vegetables, and florals. Securing extended vibrancy and quality for your produce means controlling ethylene – and that means removing it from the air where it collects. Airocide air purification uses a technology designed specifically to eliminate ethylene while producing no harmful emissions.

Using Airocide to Control Ethylene

No matter where it collects; in your warehouse, on the packing line, or in transport, Airocide can reduce ethylene gas and help stop the spoilage it causes. An Airocide system designed for your space will eliminate VOCs from the air – including ethylene – as well as other contributors to spoilage and waste like mold or bacteria. You could see less waste, more vibrant products, and healthier air for both your produce and your employees. Even better, Airocide eliminates ethylene without producing any harmful emissions, like ozone, that would only reduce air quality for the employees you depend on for a successful operation.
