Smelleze® Reusable Ethylene Gas Absorbent Pouch
Ethylene gas is naturally evolved from vegetables, flowers, and fruit. This is natures way of ripening them. Unfortunately, ethylene along with moisture also cause its ultimate decay. Loss of fruits and vegetables because of premature ripening during storage or transportation results in the loss of valuable revenue.
The Smelleze® Ethylene Absorbent Pouch was specially developed to adsorb and encapsulate ethylene during storage and transportation of fruits, flowers, and vegetables. Smelleze® will help retain freshness and result in fruits and vegetable products tasting better and lasting longer. As an added benefit, Smelleze® will reduce your energy bills through humidity control when used inside refrigerators and freezers.
It's No Cover-up
The Smelleze® Ethylene Absorbent Pouch is a natural absorbent that can be used to eliminate ethylene instead of merely masking them with fragrances. It will also adsorb moisture which contributes to premature ripening of food. Smelleze® is negatively charged whereas ethylene gases and moisture ride on positively charged particles. As a result, Smelleze® draws in ethylene and moisture like a strong magnet. Thereafter, it traps, neutralizes, and encapsulates ethylene and moisture without smelly cover-ups. The molecular structure of Smelleze® is made up of a lattice structure arranged to form a honeycomb framework of billions of interconnecting channels. This gives Smelleze® an enormous surface area that is larger than several football fields. The latter enables Smelleze® to adsorb phenomenal amounts of ethylene and moisture and work for months.
The Smelleze® Ethylene Absorbent Pouch is non-toxic, safe, non-hazardous, natural, non-scented, non- caustic, and recyclable. It is an ideal environmentally friendly product for eliminating ethylene without adding pollutants to the air. Smelleze® does not contain chemical additives and is especially beneficial for those suffering from chemical sensitivity.
Smelleze® can be effectively used to absorb ethylene from all types of fruits, flowers and vegetables in all types of containers at room temperature or under refrigerated conditions.
To eliminate ethylene from fruits, flowers, and vegetables simply remove the plastic cover, place Smelleze® pouches in the container to be treated, and experience the difference. This product will function most efficiently in an enclosed area with good air circulation.

Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
I am considering Smelleze for ethylene removal during postharvest storage of tomatoes. While I can see that you have specified certain products for given storage volumes (e.g 300 sqft), I still need to know the ethylene absorption rate of this product so I can calculate the correct requirements for my particular application. This is important to me since ethylene production varies with fruit temperature. ?Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Smelleze Ethylene Absorbent Pouch will absorb approximately 15 -20 weight percent of ethylene depending upon local conditions like temperature and humidity. For example 1000 g will absorb about 150 g of ethylene gas.
Hello my name is Phillip Daminopoulos. I have a cool store and I store pears and apples. Each room holds 500 bins of fruit which equals 264.000 kilos of fruit. Size is 8m wide x 16m long x 7m high. How many Smelleze bags do I need? Your advice will be much appreciated.
I would suggest starting off by using about 12 x Smelleze Ethylene Absorbent Pouch: XX Large and then adjust up or down if necessary. You can also consider including smaller packages (e.g. our large size or we could make smaller sizes for you) with each bin during transportation OR including 3-4 Smelleze Ethylene Absorbent Pouch: XX Large in the shipping container for protection.
I see on your site, products for various uses. i.e. odor, ethylene, moisture, etc. Are the products the same, or are they different? Does one variation apply to all needs?
Our products are designed, engineered, and optimized to target different odors, pollutants and gases. If you are specifically looking to remove ethylene gas, you should consider using Smelleze Ethylene Absorbing Granules and Smelleze Ethylene Removal Pouches as they are specially made this this application.
