Pests represent one of the biggest challenges for agricultural production, causing crop losses and reduced yields.
Bio treatment with CO2 carbon dioxide, allows the fumigation of agricultural products in greater safety, maintaining food quality, without any impact on the biological state of the product and the environment. In fact, this pest control is considered eco-sustainable.
The use of carbon dioxide makes it possible to counteract the development of pests and reduce the content of molds and fungi present, eliminating the risks of producing "plant toxins" (mycotoxins and aflatoxins).
L’utilizzo di tale gas inerte garantisce una vera e propria conservazione biologica molto apprezzata dal mercato e approvate dalla legislazione europea con regolamento CEE 2092/91.
Questa tecnologia di conservazione dei prodotti bio può essere svolta a tutti i prodotti secchi o essiccati stoccati nelle strutture di conservazione, soprattutto nei pastifici, mulini e deposito di cereali.
Pest control in a controlled atmosphere will reach such concentrations that any insects present will be eliminated by asphyxiation.
The exposure time and the percentage of gas to be kept vary according to the degree and type of infestation, the internal temperature and humidity, and the storage conditions of the goods. The percentage of the concentration to be obtained must then be maintained for a period between 7 and 10 days. The advantage of this procedure is the immediate availability of the goods, the treated product can be put on the market immediately after the disinfestation as such does not leave any residue. Furthermore, this procedure does not require special authorizations.
