A Reliable Choice When Time and Efficacy Matter Most

ECO2FUME® fumigant gas is a ready-to-use, nonflammable mixture of phosphine and carbon dioxide that enables effective fumigation in a wide variety of sealed-storage applications when used in accordance with the label. It is an effective alternative to methyl bromide and aluminum phosphide-based fumigants that delivers results, meeting fumigators' goals when time and efficacy matter most. ECO2FUME® is dispensed external to storage or structures using simple techniques that avoid applicator exposure, eliminate confined space entry and remove the need for spent fumigant disposal.

Key benefits

Advantages of ECO2FUME® fumigant gas compared to traditional fumigants include:
