The practical use of the fumigant sulfuryl fluoride to replace methyl bromide in UK flour mills


The practical use of the fumigant sulfuryl fluoride to replace methyl bromide in UK flour mills



Using cereal science and technology for the benefit of consumers Proceedings of the 12th International ICC Cereal and Bread Congress, Harrogate, UK, 23-26th May 2004: 245-249



Sulfuryl fluoride is a broad-spectrum fumigant which is being developed by Dow AgroSciences in cooperation with researchers, fumigators and the food industry for the control of stored product insects. The development effort was initiated in 1995 in response to the need to find alternatives to methyl bromide which is currently being phased out under the Montreal Protocol because of concerns that it depletes the stratospheric ozone layer.
