Types of residual gases found inside containers:
Methyl Bromide: Colourless, odourless but highly toxic fumigant extensively used for quarantine fumigations. Attacks the central nervous system, has a cumulative effect
Phosphine: Another fumigant gas, with a safe concentration level more than 16 times lower than methyl bromide
Formaldehyde: Recently classified in the EU as carcinogenic, this gas is emitted from wood glues and certain other timber products
Other Gases: Hydrogen cyanide, chloropicrin, ethylene dibromide are amongst a range of gases found inside shipping containers shipped internationally
Nordiko's system performance recorded at an operating warehouse in Sydney showed removal of methyl bromide from a level more than 8 times the safe level, to well below the safe level, in a matter of minutes.
WorkSafe in Victoria has issued guidelines requiring 24 hour open-door ventilation of fumigated shipping containers before unpacking should commence (unless mechanical ventilation/monitoring methods are used)
The Australian Standard Fumigation Procedures requires ventilation of containers after fumigation – until "safe" levels have been reached: European experience is that this can take days
Without monitoring it is not possible to determine if a shipping container is safe to enter
Even containers not marked as having been fumigated have been found to have unsafe levels of residual gases inside
AQIS regulations now prohibit officers from entering previously fumigated shipping containers

For decades, fumigation has involved the release of highly toxic substances into the atmosphere. This has often been performed under less than ideal conditions, considering the toxicity of the substances used.
With encroachment of urban development upon working wharves and depots, the potential for exposure to the public in addition to employees in the workplace increases.
In addition to servicing the fumigation market, Nordiko has adapted its products for companies wishing to ventilate or recapture any residual gases that may be inside shipping containers, post-fumigation.
Prior to unpacking imported shipping containers, many customers now see the benefit of ventilating the container using one of Nordiko’s systems, to ensure there are no unsafe gases remaining inside the container. This provides both OH&S and environmental benefits
