Ethylene filters for the elimination of ethylene gas
Ethylene gas is a natural plant hormone that speeds up the ripening process of fruits and vegetables. It is also the main cause of premature ageing of flowers and plants. The presence of ethylene gas can be detrimental to the quality, freshness and shelf life of flowers, plants, fruits and vegetables.
An ethylene filter eliminates ethylene gas to preserve the quality of these products. The filter consists of granules of purple polyethylene plastic that can absorb harmful gases such as ethylene. This helps to keep flowers, plants, fruits and vegetables fresh for longer.
