Pilot Unit – Entogenex Europe

Entogenex Europe was founded in 2018 with headquarters in Portalegre. We are a biotechnological company aimed at the research, development and production of products capable of controlling mosquitoes that transmit diseases or agricultural pests.

The objective of this project, called “Entogenex Europe”, is to build a pilot unit for the production of the non-toxic and biodegradable insecticide, Mousticide.

Mousticide effectively eradicates mosquito-borne diseases such as Malaria, Dengue, Zika, Chikungunya, Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis and West Nile Virus.

The product is obtained through the fermentation of specific yeasts and has two forms of presentation: wettable powder for dispersion in water and fumigation and impregnated rice husk for application in larvae proliferation sites.

The financing of this project has an important role not only for the development of the company, but also for the development of new products for public health and the agrifood sector worldwide.
