Bulk non-toxic treatments

A pest-infested cargo that requires a fast and cost-effective solution can be perfectly treated with a bulk treatment. No investment needed; curated on location. Go for non-toxic fumigation.

Bulk Pest Management

    Why choose bulk treatments?

    Controlled atmosphere fumigation is applied to control pests in dry commodities and food supplies and is extremely suitable for both preventive and curative treatments. This technique is based on the creation of a low-oxygen  regime/content  in a specially-constructed gastight treatment chamber, container or silo and can be applied for bulk cargo.

    Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

    This all depends on multiple parameters such as the commodity, insect species, and product temperature. Since a commodity may be infested with more than one type of insect, the treatment parameters are set to eliminate the toughest insect within the product lot. Please reach out to us to ask for an estimation of how long a treatment would take at your facility.

    Yes. A bulk treatment eliminates insects at all life stages including eggs, larvae, pupae, and adults.

    We simply reduce the oxygen level below 1.5% in an enclosed environment where the insect is. The air we breathe consists of 78% nitrogen, 21% of oxygen and 1% of other gasses. Thanks to the CUPM technology, we filter out the oxygen present in the air by flushing pure nitrogen in the treatment room. Therefore, we lower the oxygen levels down to 0.5%. No toxic chemicals are used.

    No investment is required to perform a bulk treatment. Treatment is possible at your own facility, our facilities or your partners’ facility. The only requirement for treatments at your location is electricity, to enable the treatment to be performed.

    We provide specific certificates for containers or shipments at the request of the customer. Obtain an internationally recognized certificate for treated cargos that are monitored by Monitoring Solutions.

    Our systems include monitoring equipment that can show you the entire treatment parameters. If you require monitoring services, our team can support you by identifying any problems that may arise and notifying you promptly. Please see Monitoring Solutions for more information.
