What is Ethylene Gas?

What is Ethylene gas - Remove it with AiroCide commercial air purification products

Odorless, invisible, and toxic, ethylene gas is among the largest airborne threats to commercial cold storage and food processing facilities. As experts in commercial air purification, we know the importance of controlling ethylene gas. Today, there are thousands of our AiroCide units in service, providing an effective solution to ethylene gas. But what is ethylene gas exactly? With decades of experience, we can help you define, identify and control ethylene gas.

An Invisible Threat

Ethylene gas is a naturally occurring gas from plants. It is made up of hydrogen and carbon, which, as a result, means you cannot see or smell it in your facility. In an enclosed environment like cold storage units or food processing facilities, ethylene gas’ elements can build up quickly.

As an airborne volatile organic compound (VOC), ethylene gas silently spoils produce, florals, and other products in your facility if not eliminated. Ethylene gas causes rapid ripening and maturing of products, which significantly reduces their shelf life and quality. If you’ve noticed your food waste increasing, ethylene gas may be the invisible culprit you need to control.

Eliminate Rapid Expiration

Commercial air purification with Airocide keeps your facility clean and safe from the natural gas that accumulates. To increase food quality, shelf life, or maintain safe storage practices, you need to protect your commercial indoor air quality. Keeping a clean facility and eliminating ethylene gas will secure your products’ extended vibrancy.

The easiest and most effective way to control ethylene gas is by utilizing our ethylene gas scrubbers inside each Airocide unit. Ethylene gas is an unseen, airborne VOC, but our air sanitation unit destroys all pathogens that pass through its processor. No emissions, no ozone, no bacteria, no ethylene gas, just clean air.

Pure Results

What is ethylene gas after it goes through an AiroCide unit? Trace amounts of carbon dioxide and water vapor. As a result of our patented air purification technology, the air that fills your facility is clean and free of 99.99% of ethylene gas and other airborne pathogens.

Once you install our AiroCide system, you will soon see the extended shelf life and benefits of pure air throughout your facility. Read how thousands of our units have helped provide commercial air purification for facilities like yours. For a free facility proposal, send us a message.
