New Eco-Ripe Ethylene Generator at Asia Fruit Logistica

NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, USA – Catalytic Generators will showcase the newly developed Eco-Ripe at Asia Fruit Logistica, Booth #5V28, on 4 – 6 September 2019. 

Based on the design and dependability of Catalytic Generators’ well-known Easy-Ripe® Ethylene Generator, the Eco-Ripe is a new, cost-effective option for ethylene application exclusive to the Asian market. Designed as an entry level generator for small companies, the Eco-Ripe will allow ripeners to see the advantages of using ethylene generators rather than dangerous methods like compressed gas cylinders or calcium carbide. The new Eco-Ripe® features an adjustable ethylene output for adaption to any ethylene PPM requirement or ripening room size. Ripeners of tropical fruit, organic produce, or greenhouse tomatoes will enjoy how easy and safe this generator is to use.

“Our goal is to fill the need within Asian markets of a inexpensive entry point ripening device that is portable, safe, and effective,”  stated Greg Akins, President & CEO of Catalytic Generators. “We believe that, once ripeners understand the simplicity and effectiveness of our Eco-Ripe, they will want to step up to the robust and professional Easy-Ripe generator. Also, we’ve recently expanded our world-wide distribution network by partnering with a Chinese distributor, Beijing Yangguangyishida Technology Co.,Ltd.”

Beijing Yangguangyishida Technology Co.,Ltd and Catalytic Generators will be at Asia Fruit Logistica with the newly developed Eco-Ripe® ethylene generator.  Find the team at Booth #5V28 to see the Eco-Ripe firsthand, learn about product specifications, and learn how your ripening operations can be improved through Catalytic Generators.
