Until 2022, BION products were validated by Ecocert on its website for Organic Farming, but recently the company has taken a step further by auditing with positive results its facilities. Thus, a large part of BION range of post-harvest solutions is now validated as… Read more

  • Monitor the needs of your postharvest supply chain

    Monitor the needs of your postharvest supply chain

    Controlling and monitoring the air that surrounds the fruit and vegetables in the post-harvest phase is vital. It is necessary to use systems that eliminate, minimize and control the agents that can deteriorate them, such as ethylene and other volatile compounds typical of the natural ripening process, as well as spores and microorganisms that may be present. BION, a pioneer in post-harvest products, has a range of products that adapt to each of these phases and specific needs of the supply chain, making it easier for the air chain not to break.

  • Extend the shelf life of avocados with BION

    Extend the shelf life of avocados with BION

    Avocado is a fruit that is considered a superfood also called "green gold" and is becoming more and more widely consumed. Global avocado production is expected to reach 12 million tons by 2030, 3 times more than in 2010, according to data from Rabobank. One of the biggest logistical challenges is to ensure that the product arrives in the best conditions and without shrinkage. Thus, ensuring the good condition of the cargo during transit becomes a priority. At BION we have the technology and the product to solve this need. The combined use of controlled atmosphere and ethylene… Read more

  • Track transport position and record temperature and humidity in real-time

    Track transport position and record temperature and humidity in real-time

    During fresh produce transit periods it‚Äôs important to monitor parameters such as temperature, humidity and location. At BION, we have a device that monitors temperature, humidity and location in real time, the RTL+. RTL+ is the best solution for real-time monitoring, management and control of temperature-sensitive products throughout the supply chain. It is an easy-to-use system that provides cargo visibility at an affordable cost. Simply start the logger and place it in the desired location. Each RTL+ logger transmits the recorded data via mobile data to the BION WORLD… Read more

  • Extend the shelf life of your fresh produce in times of uncertain transits

    Extend the shelf life of your fresh produce in times of uncertain transits

    We are living unpredictable times with international conflicts that create great uncertainties in maritime logistics. When it comes to perishable cargo such as fresh produce, these delays are fatal. It is well known that when fruit begins its ripening process, it releases ethylene and accelerates the ripening of surrounding fruit, making it to decompose much faster. To avoid and minimize these losses, there are solutions that help mitigate the risks of decomposition, dehydration, decoloration and rotting generated by ethylene, volatile organic compounds and fungi present in the air of… Read more

  • BION presents the most innovative equipment on the market, with sensors connected in real-time to the cloud

    BION presents the most innovative equipment on the market, with sensors connected in real-time to the cloud

    BION presents its innovative real-time data platform BION WORLD. The ETH Sense range is the first to incorporate Internet of Things (IoT) technology in its ethylene filtration equipment. The RTL+ is the device that will allow monitoring of fruit temperature, humidity, and tracking in real-time. Technology makes it easier for us to have data and this allows us to have greater control over our products. In the postharvest industry, having data on the concentration of ethylene, the temperature at which the fruits are stored, etc. is essential. Read more

  • Environmentally-friendly solutions to control ethylene during banana transport

    Environmentally-friendly solutions to control ethylene during banana transport

    In general, bananas are harvested before ripening and exposed to exogenous ethylene at the destination (100-150 ppm, 15-20 ¬ļC). In this way, its transport is easier and its final state of maturity is homogenized. Consequently, it is important to avoid the concentration of moderate amounts of ethylene during transport, which may affect the final quality of the fruit. In addition, ethylene removal during transportation has been shown to delay the development of Anthracnose, caused by Colletotrichum musae, and crown rot, caused by Lasiodiplodia theobromae, among other fungi. Both diseases… Read more

  • How to remove or treat the most common gases present in environmental pollution

    How to remove or treat the most common gases present in environmental pollution

    We live in a world where pollution constantly surrounds us. There are a multitude of polluting gases both indoors and outdoors that affect us in an invisible way. Pollution from outside can cause serious respiratory diseases such as pneumonia, cough, lung cancer, asthma, etc. and cardiovascular diseases among others. What is not so commonly known is that inside homes and buildings can also be 5 to 10 times more polluted than outside, according to the WHO. Currently, people living in urban populations in industrialised countries spend up to 90% of their time indoors. These data… Read more

  • Importance of air chain control in the postharvest sector

    Importance of air chain control in the postharvest sector

    The concept of the air chain refers to the control and preservation of the quality of the air surrounding fruits and vegetables during post-harvest. Throughout this stage, it is essential to implement systems that eliminate, minimise and control spoilage agents such as ethylene and other volatile organic compounds intrinsic to the natural ripening process, as well as spores and microorganisms that may be present.
