Naphthalene is commonly used as a pesticide in shipping containers. Unfortunately, for some sensitive products such as edible oils, it can be a contaminant. However, shipping lines do not keep records of the pesticides used, and container regulations from country to country – making it very difficult to pin down.
There needed to be a way to protect the olive oil from the naphthalene. Our soliution was our RhinoShield flexitank barrier: an added layer of protection for our flexitank, which provides a barrier against oxygen ingress, and 100% protection against naphthalene.
On loading, we ensured that during loading of the product, there was no air left inside the flexitank. The liquid inside was protected completely against any risk of oxygen ingress. We added extra peace of mind through our Marine Cargo Transit Insurance package.
