Project designation | PROTCROP4HEALTH – New green co-formulants for the development of plant protection products promoting sustainable agriculture and improving human health

Project code | LISBOA-01-0247-FEDER-024016

Main aim | OT1 – Reinforce research, technological development and innovation

Intervention region | NUTS II Lisbon

Beneficiary entity | Ascenza Agro, S.A.

Approval date | 12-09-2017

Start date | 01-11-2017

End date | 31-10-2019

Total eligible cost | 1.141.104,04 EUR

European Union financial support | FEDER – 456.441,62 EUR

Scope | The project aims to create a new generation of plant protection products in line with the green chemistry concept, in association with the reduction of the impact on human health and on the environment and promoting sustainable agriculture. In addition to the scientific findings that the R&D project will provide, it is expected to develop new experimental formulations of herbicides and fungicides that will incorporate the new green co-formulants.


Project designation | HYBRID XXI – Development of new plant protection products formulations with micro-organisms or natural origin product (algae) in association with chemical active substances

Project code | LISBOA-01-0247-FEDER-011130

Main aim | OT1 – Reinforce research, technological development and innovation

Intervention region | NUTS II Lisbon

Beneficiary entity | Sapec – Agro, S.A.

Approval date | 13-05-2016

Start date | 01-09-2015

End date | 31-10-2017

Total eligible cost | 1.164.631,92 EUR

European Union financial support | FEDER – 465.852,77 EUR

Scope | Development of plant protection products formulations involving a chemical molecule (particularly acting on pathogens) to a natural origin product (micro-organisms such as bacteria or fungi, extracts of plant origin including algae) that are likely to contribute to ensure an high effectiveness in terms of results associated with the reduction of residue levels in chemical plant protection substances, leading to a consequent reduction of health risks to both the final consumer and the applicator itself.
