A unique biopesticide

You are here

Amoéba, a disruptive biotech company, has developed BIOMEBA, the first and unique biopesticide to control microbial slime in industrial water systems, without chemical biocides

BIOMEBA is a novel, scientifically technology, classified as non-hazardous for human health and the environment*. Its active substance, Willaertia magna C2c maky, is a microorganism isolated from thermal waters and is biodegradable. It grazes on the microbial slime containing bacteria: BIOMEBA controls bacteria and amoeba producing bioslime.

Traditionally, chemical biocides are used to control microbial contamination but they can generate environmental and health risks. BIOMEBA disrupts this traditional approach to water treatment by eliminating the need for any chemical biocides. Over 5 years of industrial testing have demonstrated BIOMEBA’s effectiveness in controlling slime-forming microorganisms.
