Due to its high ozone-depletion potential, methyl bromide is being phased out globally under the Montreal Protocol.
Although many countries continue to use methyl bromide – especially for critical-use exceptions – pressure for complete phase-out is increasing.
This challenges the agricultural industry in a growing number of countries to find alternatives. In other words, solutions that match the effectiveness of methyl bromide but improve the environmental performance of fumigation activities.
Our EDN® and VAPORMATE® fumigants were developed specifically to balance the need for effective fumigation with the growing pressure to protect our environment and climate for future generations. These environmentally sound, non-residual pest control solutions give farmers and agricultural distributors attractive alternatives to methyl bromide for pre- and post-harvest control of food pests in food processing, packaging and storage facilities.
Underpinned by our strong sense of product stewardship, our fumigants present a more sustainable way to secure tomorrow’s food supplies. VAPORMATE has the added bonus of creating a safer, healthier work environment for fumigators.
