Linde presents new fumigant

German company Linde Gases (Munich) and the Australian government research organisation, the CSIRO, have developed the fumigant, ethanedinitrile, as an alternative to the ozone-depleting methyl bromide. It will be marketed as EDN to be used to limit the impact of pests and disease on timber and in agriculture. The active ingredient surpasses the efficacy of methyl bromide, requires lower dosage per crop, has a shorter fumigation period and leaves residues that degrade to become useful soil fertilisers, Linde says.
