Improve shelf life of fresh produce during storage
METTA’s Ethylene Removal Solutions.
Store maintaining optimum conditions and fresh appearance
The shelf life of fresh produce and vegetables can be considerably reduced if certain criteria are exceeded during the storage period. One of them is the presence of ethylene in the environment and its negative effects.
For fresh produce and vegetables, the presence of ethylene in the environment can have mild to extremely harmful effects. The effects that concern us most are loss of color due to ethylene-induced loss of chlorophyll, increased respiration leading to dehydration and increased demand for refrigeration to maintain temperature and, last but not least, increased incidence of disease and fungal spores in the environment due to the increased stimulation of spore development by ethylene..
Our Team: PCO PLUS (PCO+)
We have the solution: an organic purification system that reduces the adverse effects of ethylene in the storage or packaging environment, which will improve the quality and shelf life of fresh produce at a very low unit cost.
The PCO+ will allow you to demonstrate to your customers that you have sustainable integrated management solutions for their business, with less waste, reduced CO2 emissions due to reduced refrigeration requirements, and increased food safety by reducing zoonotic pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria and E Coli. Our technology has very low maintenance costs and, over the life of the machine, will generate extremely low operating costs compared to other technologies used in the industry.
