Idai Nature is the reference company for farmers interested in growing food without chemical residues. It has thus become a key part of the European LIFE Waste4Green project, which was created to demonstrate the effectiveness of two safe and sustainable formulations based on natural products.
The active substances of the formulations will be obtained from agroindustrial wastes, which will be used to replace the chemical pesticides currently used on stone fruit to control pests and diseases.
Waste4Green’s fundamental objectives include increasing safety for the environment and human health, demonstrating the effectiveness of the formulations in three different areas in the European Union (EU) and improving food safety by producing waste-free fruit.
In addition, it will also contribute to the valorisation of agroindustrial waste, as it is a clear example of the circular economy.
The initiative, involving organisations from Spain, Portugal and Italy, is endowed with a budget of more than two million euros and will continue until the end of 2022.
Idai Nature will participate in Fruit Attraction at Stand 7E12
