Cytec Solvay Group announced today that it will present its phosphine gas fumigation technologies at the upcoming 2016 GEAPS Exchange in Austin, TX February 28nd – March 1st.
Cytec Solvay Group provides solutions for stored product pest management. Cylinderized phosphine has been used worldwide as a fumigant in stored-product protection for over 20 years. Phosphine gas is injected into agricultural commodity storage (silos, bins and containers) to effectively control all stages of insects when used in accordance with the label.
Cytec’s innovative fumigation products ECO2FUME® fumigant gas and VAPORPH3OS® phosphine fumigant have proven to be cost-effective and generate no post- reaction waste or residues. They are non-reactive with water and are delivered into fumigation structures as diluted mixtures so as to provide a product form that is a non-flammable gaseous source of phosphine. These EPA registered products are easy to use and provide the ability to quickly achieve precise control of phosphine concentrations within minutes or hours rather than days.
Jeffrey Kolpa, Global Marketing Manager Phosphorus Specialties, says “At Cytec we were proud to have been a part of the GEAPS Exchange for over 15 years. Going forward as the newest part of the Solvay Group, we are excited to be building on this GEAPS tradition. ’’
At GEAPS, Cytec will be partnering with Horn Technologies Inc, the manufacturer of the unique Horn Diluphos System™ which allows on-site blending of Cytec’s VAPORPH3OS® phosphine fumigant with ambient air.
