This exclusive agreement between Rovensa Next and Limaru NV (Limaru) represents a pivotal step towards unlocking new opportunities beyond agricultural usage for orange oil in the biocide market. Rovensa Next’s Orange Oil is an active substance that has numerous applications in the agricultural sector as bioinsecticide, biofungicide and bioacaricide.

Madrid, 18 June, 2024. Rovensa Next, a pioneering leader in bio-solutions for agriculture, has announced a groundbreaking partnership with Limaru, a leading solutions provider to the global biocide industry. Under this agreement, both parties agreed to collaborate in developing, registering and marketing safe, practical and eco-conscious pest control solutions based on Orange Oil for the EU-27 and Great Britain biocide industry.

The partnership between Rovensa Next and Limaru exemplifies a synergistic alliance between two industry leaders in their respective fields. By combining Rovensa Next’s expertise in biosolutions for agriculture and Limaru’s proficiency in biocide technologies, this strategic bond is committed to driving innovation and sustainability within the biocide sector.

Rovensa Next’s Orange Oil is derived from Citrus sinensis peels through a unique cold-press process starting from freshly harvested oranges. This production process allows to safeguard high stability and efficacy of the active ingredient and in addition, Orange Oil is safe for users and the environment.

Originally developed by Oro Agri, a Rovensa Next founding member, the technology was refined through extensive research over the past two decades, resulting in various patented formulations and applications primarily catering the needs of the agricultural sector.

Rovensa Next’s Orange oil features unique properties that allow Limaru to develop and create effective biocidal solutions while ensuring environmental sustainability. Furthermore, the characteristics of Orange oil make it safe in use both indoors and outdoors, being respectful with humans and domesticated animals.

This newly formed partnership between Rovensa Next and Limaru aligns with the growing demand for naturally sourced biosolutions, as an alternative tool in the biocide market, catering to the needs of eco-conscious consumers seeking safe, practical, efficient and sustainable solutions.

Limaru plans to incorporate Rovensa Next’s Orange Oil in product formulations for insect pest management that will initially target the more common pests such as mosquitoes, houseflies and crawling insects. However, beyond mere insect pest management solutions, other applications for Orange Oil within the biocide markets are currently being explored, a testament of Limaru’s focus and commitment to harnessing the full potential of Orange Oil.
