Technological Solutions For Post–Harvest and Packaging

If you don't measure Ethylene, you can't control it!



Please consult for the number of units/filters needs to be installed as per the area of storage.
  • ART NR BP-18


The BP18 Module have been developed to provide our customers with a method to quickly and cleanly, replace the Filters, in Air Purification Units. These FULLY disposable & recyclable cartridges are designed for commercial and industrial applications.

  • Factory filling assures no air bypass of media.
  • Reduced time to change pellets.
  • 100% recyclable high impact polystyrene.

The BP18 module may also be used as fully disposable/recyclable filters into coolers wherever the ETG units cannot be operated or preferred to be used with: Coolers which fans are located on the ceiling Controlled Atmosphere (CA) rooms dealing with high levels of built-up ethylene (long storage of Apples & Pears for instance...)




» Ethylene (C2H2) is an odorless, colorless gas naturally produced & released by most fresh fruits and vegetables as a ripening agent.

» Ethylene gas is also an ever-present pollutant resulting from exhaust fumes from internal combustion engines (including propane-powered forklifts), improperly vented greenhouse heaters, industrial waste, etc...

» Ripening fruit is well known for producing ethylene. However, other plant tissues also produce this gas and can lead to decay and wilting. Even when cut from the growing plant, fruits, vegetables, and flowers are still alive and respiring. Gaseous respiration products of fruits and vegetables, production by normal healthy flower and plant tissue, chopped or damaged leaf tissue, and diseased leaves and tissues can be significant sources of ethylene

The role of ethylene gas

» Ethylene, also known as the "ripening hormone" plays a regulatory role in many processes of plant growth, development and senescence/decaying.

» Fruits, vegetables and flowers contain receptors which serve as bonding sites to absorb ethylene molecules. The common practice of placing a kiwi, avocado or banana in a bag to hasten ripening is an example of the action of ethylene on produce: increased levels of ethylene contained within the bag, released by the produce itself, serve as a stimulant to initiate the production of more ethylene. The overall effect is to hasten ripening, aging and eventually spoilage.

» A refrigerator acts in a similar way: while kept closed to retain the desired temperature, it also enables an increased concentration of built-up ethylene. Any closed environment, such as a truck trailer, reefer container, ships hold or warehouse will have a similar effect.

Why Control Ethylene
  • Ethylene has been Scientifically Proven to cause
  • Increase in respiration
  • Water loss/weight loss
  • Yellowing or spotting
  • Production of more ethylene
  • Accelerated ripening, ageing and decay
  • Reduction in nutrient content (e.g. loss of vitamin C)
  • Taste and aroma changes, off-flavors such as bitterness
  • Loss of leaves and flowers, sprouting, toughening
