A-Gas Rural launches new ozone friendly fumigant for log industry

A-Gas Rural, in partnership with CWLT Logistics, has launched the fumigant, ProFume, for use in the log industry. ProFume offers an ozone friendly alternative to Methyl Bromide which can have harmful effects on the environment. It is estimated that 140 tonnes of Methyl Bromide is used on log exports from Australia every year.

ProFume has been licensed by the Environmental Protection Agency for use at the CWLT Logistics export timber yard in Bathurst, NSW. ProFume will not contribute to ozone depletion as it contains no chlorine or bromine atoms. At Bathurst it’s the first time that ProFume has been used commercially anywhere in the world.
