Heat treatments

Heat treatment is used for the sterilisation and / or devitalisation of both imported and exported goods without the use of toxic gases. It is an environmentally friendly solution that is safe and harmless to your goods and products.

Goods suitable for this treatment include birdseeds, grains, herbs, bark products, Bali grass thatching, water hyacinth and moss products.

With export packaging guidelines that came into effect in early to mid-2004, exporters have the option for fumigation, heat treatment or kiln drying.

Our experience at Rentokil shows that due to the damaging affects of Methyl Bromide on the Ozone layer, some countries prefer heat treated timber packaging.
