Bedoukian Research, Inc. (BRI) and P2 Science, Inc. have announced the signing of a joint development agreement (JDA) that builds on each company’s expertise in developing efficient routes to synthesize insect pheromones.
P2 Science, Inc. has developed a suite of patented green chemistry process technologies that convert renewable feedstocks into high-value specialty chemicals. BRI specializes in the supply of high-quality insect pheromones as well as flavors and fragrances.
Under the terms of the JDA, the companies will bring these and other strengths together with the aim of developing business opportunities in the growing pheromone market utilizing plant-based, renewable chemicals.
“Bedoukian Research, Inc. has been manufacturing insect pheromones since 1975, obtaining numerous global technical pheromone active ingredient registrations, concentrated mainly in the United States, Canada and Europe,” Bedoukian CEO Robert Bedoukian said. “BRI is dedicated to innovative solutions for challenging market segments and advocates these issues as an active member of both the Biological Products Industry Alliance as well as the International Biocontrol Manufacturers Association. Bedoukian Research, Inc. and P2 Science together support safe, effective and more economical solutions for pest management and crop protection, as well as the development of novel, renewable chemical ingredients.”
“P2 was founded on the principle of minimizing harm to the planet and its people, while at the same time providing the highest performing chemical products to our customers,” P2 Science CEO Neil Burns said. “Our partnership with BRI brings together two like-minded companies with complementary skills and abilities. We are really excited to be launching this new initiative with them.”
