LIPOFABRIK: A ground-breaking biomolecular production platform for safer, more efficient and sustainable pest control and crop health management.

Project description

Safer, non-toxic and effective biopesticides

Similar to pathogens that cause disease in humans and animals, plant pathogens can spread from plant to plant. Responsible for more than a third of food loss, they threaten feed and food production. To protect plants, farmers rely on plant protection products, which use chemicals that may cause more harm; chemical residues contaminate soil, water, plants and their products and threaten consumers and livestock. The French LIPOFABRIK developed and patented a suite of innovative biopesticide molecules of biological origin, lipopeptides. While these are effective and eco friendly, they can be produced at a small scale. The EU-funded LIPOFABRIK project will optimise this technology to achieve industrial production capability. The overall aim is to provide safer, non-toxic and effective biopesticides.
