Soft products in the field of insect protection

Green Deal also for biocides and how is BioGenius adapting to this trend? 

The EU's Green Deal also affects areas where you initially would not see a link. However, the trend using soft products in the field of insect protection exists also due to the fact that some traditional groups of active ingredients will only be found in the professional sector in the future.

Green Deal also for biocides and how is BioGenius adapting to this trend?

The EU's Green Deal also affects areas where you initially would not see a link. However, the trend using soft products in the field of insect protection exists also due to the fact that some traditional groups of active ingredients will only be found in the professional sector in the future.

Insect protection products in supermarkets or even in DIY and hobby stores will change significantly in this respect.

This also has something to do with the Green Deal that the EU has launched.

What are the "new" active ingredients that are supposed to protect us from insect pests in a gentler way in the future?

These are mainly substances from nature, some of them have been in the shadows as alternatives for a long time and are now being brought more and more into the limelight.

However, the obligation to obtain biocide approval is not waived just because active substances from nature are used. This group of active ingredients has also been part of the biocide regulation for a long time. 

What specific options does BioGenius offer to customers who want to rely more and more on the green card?

Well, first of all, there are our extensive possibilities of orienting tests on the effect on almost all common insect pests and with methods that are closely aligned with the requirements of a subsequent product approval. 

But BioGenius also offers some experience in the field of analytical and physical/chemical registration studies such as:

  • Development and validation of analytical methods
  • shelf life testing
  • application tests
  • safety characteristics

Last but not least, we also offer the possibility to support our customers in product development in many important areas.
