  • Experienced team will seek to expand regulatory approvals for ethyl formate to other produce and countries
  • Initially target Australia, South Korea and China but relevant to all global markets

Stored Grain On-Farm, Bulk Storage and Pre-Shipment:

  • Grain is one of Australia‚Äôs largest exports and requires fumigating multiple times along the logistics chain
  • Chinese Government focusing on regulating food security and safety and is moving away from toxic fumigation methods

  • Fume8 is a patented system therefore any use of Ethyl Formate for fumigation purposes will be through Fume8 technology.
  • Large bulk grain handlers in Australia spend: A$200m to A$250m annually on fumigation
