No Bugs, No Payment and More Capacity
It’s July, our verdant countryside is awash with colour as the farmers’ crops begin to mature, the wild flowers bloom and every green fingered gardener feverishly tends his own miniature Kew Gardens.
But as the British summer blooms, the UK’s population is set to soar.
But it won’t be through an influx of tourists wanting to holiday on our shores; what we’re talking about is an insect invasion.
Crack the critters
Bugs get everywhere – in fact over 20% of the total world food production is lost every year thanks to post-harvest crops being destroyed by insects, microbes and other pests. But foodstuffs aren’t their only target. These little menaces are transported in all goods including clothes and furniture.
Traditional methods of controlling pest have involved chemicals. But these tend to leave residues, bugs can evolve immunity and they tend to be detrimental to the environment. Therefore a solution is needed which eradicates pests, that they can’t evolve immunity towards and that doesn’t have detrimental effects to humans or the environment.
The solution is Ec02– a quick, easy, inexpensive and effective method which has no harmful effect on foodstuffs, is harmless to humans and doesn’t leave a residue.
Now for the science bit – with the goods placed inside the Ec02 chamber, the temperature is increased and the oxygen content is reduced and replaced with nitrogen. The result is a reliable 99.997% mortality rate of all pests (at all stages of development).
Anchor Storage has two large Ec02 chambers which are approved by the Soil Association as suitable for organic products.

Bigger and better
Felixstowe is already the UK’s busiest container port and one of the largest in Europe. However with its expansion, it’s about to get even busier.
The first phase of Felixstowe South is on target to be operational in 2010, with the second phase expected to be operational by 2016. Once completed, the scheme will see Felixstowe South increase - by almost 200% - the capacity available at Felixstowe for the world’s largest ships to call at the UK’s number one container port. And that means a greater need for nearby handling and storage facilities.
