Desinfected / Pasteurized soils and substrates
Commission Regulation (EU) No. 1146/2014 limits and prohibits in some cases the use of Methyl Bromide (BM) -already used in the disinfection of soils and substrates – as a consequence of the agreements reached worldwide that are included in the Montreal Protocol. The United Nations demands a gradual reduction of the production of the BM to the manufacturers, simultaneously encouraging the investigation of new technologies that allow the use of alternative systems. GICONMES works with solid results since 2014, in the development of an innovative steam disinfection system with spectacular results for crops in greenhouses.
