Overview

Methyl bromide (MeBr) is a key biosecurity treatment chemical used for the control of unwanted pests on imported goods. It is also used in phytosanitary treatments for various export products to meet importing countries phytosanitary requirements. Unused MeBr during fumigation needs to be recaptured or destroyed to control its ozone depleting effect and improve safety of workers and bystanders.

This project is to conduct a survey of the recapture technologies and to determine the performance of recapture technologies currently used in New Zealand. The survey will cover key commodities that require MeBr treatment and representative treatment conditions used in New Zealand.

Findings will inform decision-making on the use and communication of MeBr for biosecurity treatment.
