This conference, organised by the Indonesian Agricultural Quarantine Agency and the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, will take place in Surabaya, Indonesia from 19-20 May 2014.
The conference intends to showcase the latest in alternative biosecurity treatments for use along the manufacturing supply chain and/or import pathway as well as improved techniques in the reponsible handling, use, monitoirng and recapture of methyl bromide.
Linde's Global Head of Crop Science, Chris Dolman, has been invited to speak at the conference and will address key industry and government decision makers on Linde’s pioneering non-ozone depleting fumigants.
“With ozone depleting methyl bromide being phased out due to environmental concerns and international obligations under the Montreal Protocol, Linde is leading the way in the development of eco-friendly alternatives such as VAPORMATE® and EDN FUMIGAS® which are providing certainty for the agriculture and timber industries,’’ Mr Dolman said.
Mr Dolman said VAPORMATE and EDN FUMIGAS were gradually changing the way the agriculture and forestry sectors approached fumigation.
“They have no known ozone depletion or global warming potential and are Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) by the US FDA.
