The world’s expanding population is exerting growing pressure on the environment, global food supplies and energy resources. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations estimates that already 1.02 billion people are undernourished worldwide.
Feeding the world sustainably is one of the biggest challenges facing society today. It calls for advances not only in crop production and harvesting, but also in the protection of harvested crops. This means controlling the insects and diseases that can threaten a harvested crop or felled wood.
At Linde, we have developed innovative fumigants to limit the impact of pests and disease on timber and in agriculture, thus protecting the world’s valuable food chains.
Our EDN® and VAPORMATE® solutions, for instance, reflect years of research and underscore Linde’s commitment to providing environmentally friendly alternatives to conventional fumigants with strong ozone depletion and global warming potential.
