Ethy-Gen® II: Powerful. Clean. Pure. Approved.
NEW! Packaging Improvements for Ethy-Gen® II:
We've recently added sealed caps and bottle lot codes to the quart & half-gallon bottles of Ethy-Gen® II. Click here for more details.
II is specially formulated by Catalytic Generators, LLC for efficient and clean conversion to ethylene. Sometimes referred to as a "ripening fluid", Ethy-Gen®
II is simply poured in or connected to one of our generators, and quick, safe* and constant ethylene production will begin. It has passed the regulatory requirements of many government agencies, including the US EPA
and the UK Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD)
. As a plant growth regulator, Ethy-Gen® II is approved for use on many fruits, vegetables and tobacco.
II consists of an all-natural, GMO-free active ingredient
and is permitted for use on some organic fruits, including bananas.Recently in the UK there have been some companies selling unregistered products for ripening, and have caused some confusion amongst the banana industry.
In order to clarify what is legal and what is illegal, the UK's Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD) of the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) issued in July a statement about this issue. We have created a page with more information: CRD Statement
Available by the case in several different container sizes
- 12 - 1 quart bottles (shown above, available worldwide)
- 8 - ½ gallon bottles (only available in North America)
- 55 gallon container for the Centralized Ripening System (only available to CRS clients)
