  • This bioproduct, made from natural, chemical-free compounds, has the capacity to eliminate and prevent algae that grow in irrigation reservoirs.
  • Unlike those currently on the market, this product combines two effects in one: biological algaecide and sunscreen, which increases its effectiveness.
  • This milestone marks the launch of the first product in ARQUIMEA’s sustainable agriculture line, created with the aim of helping to conserve the natural environment and preserve biodiversity in agricultural activities.

 

ARQUIMEA, through its biotechnology division, has launched BIO100 onto the market, a 100% biological, biodegradable and innocuous algaecide, made from natural, chemical-free compounds, which has the capacity to eliminate and prevent algae that grow in irrigation reservoirs.

This is the first product in its sustainable agriculture line, created with the aim of developing natural and 100% biodegradable solutions, which help to conserve the natural environment and preserve the biodiversity of the environment during agricultural activities.

How does BIO100 work?

BIO100 combines the capacity of a biological algaecide with a sunscreen, resulting in a highly innovative product compared to the algaecides currently available on the market. It prevents both the growth and proliferation of algae, making it a highly effective product. Moreover, thanks to this dual effect, it is the only biological algaecide that is compatible with reservoirs that have been previously treated with chemical algaecides and is effective from day one.

Furthermore, BIO100 has been specially designed to care for agricultural soils, the environment and the surrounding areas, as it does not damage the soil or interfere with the germination of plants, which is characteristic of algaecides with a chemical composition.

Compatible with traditional and organic agriculture

As it is a 100% natural product, it is suitable for both traditional and organic agriculture. Furthermore, because it is preserved in water-soluble bags that dissolve in cold water, it is quick and easy to apply, which means less application time and greater safety for the personnel using the product.

ARQUIMEA, through its biotechnology division, works with universities and research centres to develop biosolutions and their transfer to the market, which prevent damage to crops and the degradation of agricultural soils. BIO100 is a commitment towards more sustainable irrigation water management and greater effectiveness and profitability for farmers.
