In a context of accelerated climate change, world food consumption is increasing accompanying population growth, and by 2035 we must double its production. Due to limited amount of arable land, the only way to achieve this goal in a sustainable way is to develop disruptive technologies and maximize the power of nature.
WHAT IS A NANOPARTICLE?
Nanoparticles exist in nature but can also be produced as a result of human activities. Due to their submicroscopic size, nanoparticles have distinctive features making them appealing for their use in several fields such as agriculture, industry, medicine, engineering, among others.
We have developed a sophisticated synthesis technology that mimics nature and its ability to create "nano" materials. One of our main goals relies on the development of greener strategies for the synthesis of nanoparticles while taking care of the environment.
WHY CHOOSING BIOGENIC NANOPARTICLES?
1. Streamlined & Cost-effective
2. Surface Functionalization
3. Stable & Safer
Biogenic capping agents used throughout our syntheses processes are responsible for keeping the nanoparticles preserved making them more stable in time, but also masking and protecting eukaryotic cells from possible metal toxicity.
