Chlorine dioxide disinfects fruit, vegetables, equipment
The EPA has conditionally approved Selectrocide, a chlorine dioxide product, as a disinfectant, sanitizer and algaecide for applications in the horticulture and food processing industries. It produces greater than 99 percent pure chlorine dioxide simply by submersing the product in water. The resulting chlorine dioxide and water solution can be used to kill disease-bearing bacteria, fungi and algae. For the horticulture and food industries, chlorine dioxide has not been available to clean plants, food and equipment because chlorine dioxide could not be produced on site without significant chemical residuals. Selectrocide makes it possible for the first time to generate specific concentrations of chlorine dioxide at the point of use with very low residuals, neutral pH, using only water with no capital equipment.
