Project name:

UK-based SME seeks chemical manufacturers and suppliers for their innovative pest monitoring and management systems

Status: Idea
Creation date: 12-04-2022

Project objectives:

Summary Insect pests are an issue in agriculture and other industries. However effective alternatives to toxic pesticides are needed. A UK-based SME has developed such an alternative system based on pheromones that is specific to individual pest species. They are looking for a chemical manufacturer or supplier to provide them with Trimedlure for these systems. The partnership is expected to be a manufacturing agreement or a supplier agreement.

Description

Insects can be pests of agriculture, forestry and horticulture in their own right. They can also be vectors of disease. Controlling them is important for these industries but safer and effective alternatives to toxic pesticides are sought.

A UK-based SME specialises in a nature based approach to insect pest management using the natural behaviour of pests, the right pheromone combination and trapping to target specific pest species while not damaging the wider ecosystem.

In order to produce their unique systems the UK SME is looking for chemical manufacturers and suppliers able to produce or supply Trimedlure (1,1-Dimethylethyl-4 (or 5)-chloro-methylcyclohexanecarboxylate). It is envisaged that the partnership will take the form of either a manufacturing agreement or a supplier agreement dependent on the circumstances of the partner. A manufacturing agreement with chemical manufacturers is preferred.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought The UK-based SME is looking for a chemical manufacturer or supplier that can manufacture or supply 1,1-Dimethylethyl-4 (or 5)-chloro-methylcyclohexanecarboxylate (Trimedlure) - CAS: 12002-53-8.
