Ethy-Gen® II Ripening Concentrate

Ethy-Gen® II:
Powerful. Clean. Pure. Approved.


Ethy-Gen® II’s active ingredient is all-natural & GMO-free, and is the only “ripening fluid” approved by the US EPA , UK Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD), and Dutch Board for the Authorisation of Plant Protection Products and Biocides (Ctgb).

Since we manufacture Ethy-Gen® II with only the purest ingredients available, there are no harmful byproducts produced when converted to ethylene in one of our Catalytic Generators.

Don’t be fooled by copycat “ripening fluids.”  There’s only one that has passed the stringent standards of the US-EPA, UK-CRD, and Ctgb for use in banana ripening in the Netherlands ….Ethy-Gen® II Concentrate. So you can be sure of the purity and safety of what comes out of the ethylene generator when you only pour in Ethy-Gen® II!

Also, ethylene is odorless and without measuring the level in the room, there’s no way to know it is present in the ripening room.  No ethylene = no ripening.  That’s why ethylene created from Ethy-Gen® II has a slight sweet smell…letting you know it is there, doing the work to help make delicious fruit.

Available by the case in several different container sizes:

  • 12 – one-litre bottles (shown above, available worldwide)
  • 8 – ½ gallon bottles (only available in the USA)
  • 55 gallon (208 litre) container for the Centralized Ripening System (only available to worldwide CRS clients)

Contact us for pricing; available through distributors worldwide.

We’ve improved the packaging for one of our most popular products, all for your convenience.

You may have heard of some confusion in the past, particularly in the UK, where some companies were selling unregistered ripening products. In order to distinguish between these illegal products and Catalytic Generator’s legal ones, please click here to read the statement made by the UK’s Chemical Regulation Directorate (CRD) of the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) about this issue: CRD Statement.
