Proposal number EXAW-1999-01021

AcronymZEOPRESERVATION

Proposal titleZeolite-based materials for preservation of fresh horticultural products

AbstractThe proposal aims at development of novel zeolite-based materials to be used in

horticultural industry and related areas to enhance storage and transportation potential and

to support quality maintenance of perishable products. Losses encountered during storage

and transportation of horticultural products are considerable and arise mainly from the

high air humidity and elevated levels of the ripening hormone ethylene (ethene) in the

storage atmosphere. Elevated levels of ethylene stimulate deteriorative processes while

high humidities greatly stimulate development of plant pathogenic fungi. We will develop

a range of novel zeolite-based products to alleviate, in an environmentally safe way, these

problems through 1) better control of air humidity, 2) elimination fungal spores, 3)

removal of hydrocarbons and, 4) concrolled release of anti-fungal natural oils.
