ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., October 6, 2015 – EcoPesticides International is debutting eShield™, a novel encapsulation technology for biopesticides, at Technology Ventures Corporation’s (TVC) 2015 Deal Stream Summit on October 6 at the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum.
EcoPesticides has developed its “green” encapsulation technology to support more rapid market adoption of biologic pesticides that protect crops, but do no harm to the environment. Commercial adoption has been hindered due to the fact that biopesticides degrade quickly when exposed to UV light. EcoPesticides’ eShield “shields” biologic pesticides from UV damage, prolonging potency and effectiveness in crop protection.
For 22 years, the Deal Stream Summit has been New Mexico’s venue for showcasing exciting technology-based investment opportunities originating from the U.S. Department of Energy laboratories and other research institutes.
