Pesticide Reduction

nanoe™ radiated throughout the refrigerator breaks down pesticide. A simple rinse in water after nanoe™ X storage reduces pesticide than a water rinse alone.

How nanoe™ X works

Hydroxyl radicals of nanoe™ X break down pesticide particles to easily wash away residue.


Pesticide atoms have a strong bond that repels water.

Hydroxyl radicals break down this bond (hydrophilization).

This allows water to rinse off pesticides easily.​​


*Test organisation: TECHNO SCIENCE Corporation. Certificate number: 20020273-001. Tested pesticides: Diniconazole and Azoxystrobin. Test method (n=2): 3 days’ exposure with and without nanoe™ X, and after a rinse with water. Test conditions: In a 400-L square chamber, at a temperature of 5°C and humidity of over 70%, with nanoe™ X repeatedly turned on for 20 minutes then off for 40 minutes. Test process: 1) Pesticide was applied to a φ2.8 cm dish. 2) The dish was placed in the 400-L square chamber. 3) After 3 days, the dish was washed with water. 4) The pesticide residue on the dish was measured. 5) Analysis was conducted with LC/MS. Test results: Diniconazole residue reduced by 77.7% with nanoe™ X, 44.4% without nanoe™ X; Azoxystrobin reduced by 59.3% with nanoe™ X, 12.5% without nanoe™ X. Note: The effect of nanoe™ X can be expected to differ depending on the fruit or vegetable.
