Area 2 (‘Environment’): Improve and manage resource use to reduce waste and enhance the environmental sustainability of European animal production
Zelnova wishes to develop a specific insecticide against invasive species that threaten sustainable honey production. This insecticide should act just against the invasive insects without affecting other insects like bees.
ZELNOVA, S.A. produces and commercialises chemical products for households and industrial use, such as insecticides, air fresheners, cleaners and disinfectants. The company has an important position in several segments of the insecticide market, such as sprays for household use and plants (Casa Jardín brand), electric insecticide dispensers (Kill Paff brand), and liquid insecticides (Bio-Kill brand). Zelnova has been using ozone-friendly propellants for over 20 years. It has also pioneered, in Spain, the use of electric mosquito killers that do not use refill tablets.
