Weyers Cave, VA (Jan. 4, 2024) — Degesch America, Inc., a leading innovator in fumigation and pest control solutions, is proud to introduce U-Phos(R) Phosphine Fumigant to the U.S. market.

This cylinderized fumigant has been approved for use by the U.S. EPA and is currently in the approval process in several states.

Key Features of U-Phos Phosphine Fumigant Include:

• Cost Effective and Reliable: U-Phos Phosphine Fumigant is one of the most cost-effective fumigants available today. It is mixed with CO2 or forced air via specialized equipment to produce a non-flammable mixture suitable for fumigation.

• Alternative to Methyl Bromide: Unlike other fumigants, such as methyl bromide, U-Phos Phosphine Fumigant does not contribute to the decline in the ozone layer, and most importantly, there are no detectable residue issues for commodities treated with U-Phos Phosphine Fumigant.

• Alternative for Aluminum & Magnesium Phosphide: Because it is applied as a gas, there is no need for deactivation and disposal of material which may be generated by plate and packaged tablet or pellet use.

• Gas Apps Hi-Flo Dispensing Equipment: Degesch America, Inc. is also supplying state of the art dispensing equipment manufactured by Gas Apps for the application of U-Phos Phosphine Fumigant allowing the user to receive all the equipment and products necessary to fumigate from a single source.

• Customer Support: Degesch America, Inc. has a strong history of stewardship, technical training, and support, including in-person classroom training, field training, and online training.

Degesch America, Inc. President and CEO Bartek Drewnowski, commented on the launch, saying, "We are excited to introduce U-Phos Phosphine Fumigant to the U.S. market. We believe it will complement our quality metal phosphide products and have a positive impact on our industry by offering a proven and effective option for fumigation.”
