Calcium carbide treatment of food products is extremely hazardous. because it contains traces of arsenic and phosphorus. Calcium Carbide used is industrial grade, used in welding applications This is known to contain traces of arsenic and phosphorus which are toxic and may be hazardous to health Calcium Carbide reacts with moisture in the air to produce acetylene gas, which is believed to affect the nervous system by reducing supply of oxygen to the brain. The only scientific and safe ripening method accepted worldwide is the use of Ethylene Ethylene is a natural plant hormone that the fruit itself emits as it ripens Exposure of unripe fruit to a miniscule dose of ethylene is sufficient to stimulate the natural ripening process until the fruit itself starts producing ethylene in large quantities The only scientific and safe ripening method accepted worldwide is the use of Ethylene: which is a natural ripening agent for fruits.Ethylene is a ripening hormone. While Banana Ripening through ethylene is a safe method. it is also very cost effective too as it eliminates requirement of Ice. We provide total solution for Ripening through Ethylene Generator/ centralized Systems. including. design. supply. erection. commissioning and facilitation support to obtain subsidy from government.
