Summary in English
Research Branch Technical Bulletin 1993-18E

This report outlines the various parameters affecting the choice of a system for establishing and maintaining optimum conditions for storage of a particular horticultural crop. Two categories of gas control are reviewed: 1. oxygen conl systems, 2. carbon dioxide control systems. Ethylene removal is also described, but the existing systems permit only a limited control of this gas and are not yet economical. The most promising systems for gas control are those that can control the levels of more than one gas such as pressure swing absorption and hollow fiber membrane separator systems.
