Tecnalia develops environment-friendly and health-friendly pest control products
Date:10/20/2010

Tecnalia, through its Construction Unit, is participating in and coordinating a European FP7 research project for SMEs, called Bimosyn. The aim is to develop pest control products with lower concentrations of biocides and, thereby, be more environmentally friendly and less damaging for human health. The two years lasting project will be carried out jointly with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and five SME companies: Berkem (France), Linotech (Sweden), Rutlandbio (the United Kingdom), Quadrifolio (Portugal) and Dts-Oabe (Spain). These companies will be responsible for marketing the new products developed.

The scientific development of the project involves research into the degree of synergy between bioactive antioxidant substances (natural phenolic compounds, such as anthocyanins) and conventional insecticides and fungicides. The aim is to use natural, vegetable-origin extracts with the potential for being employed as biocide adjuvants for the chemical sector. In this way, pest control products which will have the same efficacy as conventional ones can be obtained and, at the same time, will not be prejudicial for the environment or to human health. The new pesticides will act to combat plague of flies, cockroaches, termites and wood-rotting fungi.

The project involves the study of the synergy between bioactive antioxidant molecules and synthetic biocides within the new European Biocide Products Directive 98/8/CE (BPD). The idea of this is to develop new pesticide product formulations which can be clearly differentiated in the market with respect to conventional, more contaminant pesticides. Other objectives of the project are to attain products which are competitive from a business and commercial perspective, as well as promoting the use of these pesticides in the construction sector.

Future challenges

Notable amongst the tasks to be undertaken is that the researchers will gather all the basic ant
