From the outset and then during transport, citrus fruit is a living organism that continues to breathe even after harvest with their respiration producing carbon dioxide(CO2), water (H2O) and ethylene (C2H4). Elimination of the ethylene during transport provides us with additional security with the aim of maintaining quality at destination.
Ethylene is a gaseous hormone generated by all vegetables, although citrus does so only in very small amounts. This hormone regulates the processes associated with the ripening and senescence of fruit and vegetable produce.
The accumulation of this gas causes citrus fruits to lose commercial quality and it shortens its useful life through wilting and calyx depression.
Ethylene removal is achieved through an absorbent that slows down ripening and also absorbs the volatile organic compounds responsible for odors.
