Rovensa Next, a group of companies dedicated to biosolutions for sustainable agriculture, has announced a 10-year partnership with Limaru NV, a solutions provider to the global biocide industry. Under this agreement, the parties will collaborate in developing, registering and marketing safe, practical and eco-conscious pest control solutions based on the new natural active Orange Oil—specifically including several aerosols—for the EU-27 and Great Britain biocide industry.

By combining Rovensa Next’s expertise in biosolutions for agriculture and Limaru’s proficiency in biocide technologies, this strategic bond is committed to driving innovation and sustainability within the biocide sector, said Limaru NV and Rovensa Next in a joint press release.

Rovensa Next’s Orange Oil is derived from Citrus sinensis peels through a cold-press process starting from freshly harvested oranges. This production process allows to safeguard high stability and efficacy of the active ingredient. Safe for users and the environment, Orange Oil was riginally developed by Oro Agri, a Rovensa Next founding member. The technology was refined through extensive research over the past two decades, resulting in various patented formulations and applications primarily catering the needs of the agricultural sector.

Rovensa Next’s Orange Oil features properties that allow Limaru to develop and create effective biocidal solutions while ensuring environmental sustainability. Furthermore, the characteristics of Orange Oil make it safe in use both indoors and outdoors, being respectful to humans and domesticated animals, according to the companies.

This newly formed partnership aligns with the growing demand for naturally sourced biosolutions as an alternative tool in the biocide market, catering to the needs of eco-conscious consumers seeking safe, practical, efficient and sustainable solutions, they added.

Limaru plans to incorporate Rovensa Next’s Orange Oil in product formulations for insect pest management that will initially target the common pests such as mosquitoes, houseflies and crawling insects. Other applications for Orange Oil within the biocide markets are currently being explored.

Said Limaru CEO Wim Decraemere, “Thanks to our collaboration with Rovensa Next, we aim to redefine the standards of efficacy and sustainability in biocide development, utilizing their naturally sourced Orange Oil to create groundbreaking, eco-friendly pest control solutions.”
