TECNIDEX develops an “Eco…logical” catalogue with solutions for postharvest farming
The company has products such as disinfectants, preservatives and biodegradable detergents certified by the Spanish Organic Produce Certification Company (CAAE) for the protection and treatment of organic postharvest fruit and vegetables. Likewise, it is certified for the use of environmentally-friendly technology.
As a result of its concern for sustainability, TECNIDEX, FRUIT PROTECTION has added to its catalogue novel solutions that are compatible with organic fruit and vegetable production, guaranteeing postharvest protection.
The company has obtained certification for several products and the use of technology by the CAAE (certification body specializing in Organic Produce), thus developing an “Eco…Logical” catalogue which reinforces even further its market position.
The Chairman of TECNIDEX, Manuel García-Portillo states that it is “Eco…logical” because “it is ecology developed with logic, from authorized inputs for use in organic farming which are really effective, care for and protect the fruit without damaging it, in an environmentally friendly and sustainable fashion”.
In the Textar® line, products have been certified for wash water in citrus fruits, peppers and tomatoes, and products for the absorption of gases and air purification in conservation areas, transport and fruit preparation. In the Teycer® line, biodegradable detergents for washing fruit and for washing crates as well as products for regulating the pH of treatment water.
In the CONTROL-TEC® line, environmentally-friendly technologies suitable for use in organic farming have been declared, among these, those that allow: a reduction in water consumption at centres; the reuse of treatment water and its purification; cold store air purification technologies that leave no residue on fruit or in the atmosphere; and ultrasonic humidification technologies that enable cold store relative humidity levels of close to 100% efficiency to be achieved.
