Controlled atmosphere (CA)
Goods that often get infected with pests may be best treated in airtight chambers. Controlled atmospheres are airtight chambers or containers that can get products such as nuts, corn, rice, cocoa, coffee, spices, dried fruit, seeds, legumes, tobacco, soya wheat and barley pest free—quickly and efficiently. This technique is approved by various organic schemes and is often applied in conventional supply chains as well due to increasing safety and cost considerations.
Clean and safe
Go for non-toxic fumigation
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.
Non-toxic; better for the planet
The technique does not use any toxic gases and will therefore leave no residues on the products. Another positive aspect of this method is that the pest population cannot develop any resistance. Examples of products that can be treated:
Grain, rice, cocoa
Coffee, spices, nuts
Dried fruits, seeds, dried peas and beans
Tobacco, and soy Furniture
Works of art, and historical objects
Foolproof and bioproof
No chemical residues left on product after treatment
No toxic chemicals
Safe for the environment
No pest leftovers
Eliminates 100% of insects in stored product
No resistance in pest population
No harm to workers
No toxic chemicals or work restrictions
