Global Biopesticides Market is valued at $66.57 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $104.7 billion by 2022 growing at a CAGR of 6.7% between 2015 and 2022. The factors contributing for the market growth include increasing market for organic products, and growing number of environmental and health concerns. Joint ventures in the bio pesticides sector and increasing investments from private sector are contributing to the market growth. However, factors such as barriers in adoption of biopesticides, and variable efficacy of biopesticides are inhibiting the market growth. Furthermore, factors such as lack of knowledge to the farmers regarding the benefits of biopesticides and lack of enthusiasm among farmers to alter the existing chemical crop protection practices are restraining the market growth. North America is likely to acquire the highest market share during the forecast period due to increasing demand for organic food. European region is projected to be the fastest growing market.

BVT On Track to Towards Commercialization MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 14, 2016) - Bee Vectoring Technologies (the "Company" or "BVT") (TSX VENTURE:BEE) is pleased to provide a shareholder update from the CEO offering an overview of the Company's strategic direction and progress towards commercialization. "We have achieved the milestones outlined at the beginning of the year in 2016 and are extremely bullish on 2017," offered Ashish Malik, President and CEO of Bee Vectoring Technologies. "Within the three months since joining Bee Vectoring Technologies, much has been accomplished that sets out a clear and concise path to commercialization including the approval of additional patents, now totaling 11 globally, submissions to the US EPA and the continued development of our vast array of technologies. As well, we continue to verify the efficacy of our existing technology through independently validated studies." Mr. Malik, who joined BVT following 13 successful years in the crop protection industry, including executive positions at Bayer CropScience, AgraQuest and Syngenta, added "the Company is following a plan that is well-established for the adoption of new on-farm technologies and that is expected by the industry and growers alike. In 2017, we will continue to develop both existing and new technologies while working closely with the US regulatory bodies to ensure that we are able to begin sales of BVT CR-7 as early as possible." "In addition to the US market opportunity that exists, we have already initiated conversations with regulatory bodies in both Canada and Europe to expand the reach of our products on a global scale," continued Mr. Malik. "There is a growing need to make agriculture not only more productive but also to do so in a more responsible way by reducing its overall impact on the environment. We have created a unique and compelling technology which gives growers a new crop production tool to meet these challenges." The Company has met several key milestones: The Company is focusing on two key strategic priorities: To drive these priorities in the coming 6 months, the Company is pursuing commercial demonstrations of its proprietary system with influential growers, supporting the review of the BVT CR-7 product at the US EPA and conducting trials in new crops and additional countries. The Company has progressed several crops past the proof of concept stage and is currently conducting field trials and commercial demos with growers. The path to commercialization includes: The Company's objective is to have several opportunities in different stages of the sales cycle at any given growing season. Strawberries have advanced to the commercial demo stage; indoor tomatoes, blueberries and sunflowers are at the field trial stage; almonds are in the proof of concept stage. BVT has developed and owns patent-pending bee vectoring technology (consisting of a proprietary tray dispenser containing a unique carrier agent) that is designed to harmlessly utilize commercially reared bumblebees as natural delivery mechanisms for a variety of powdered mixtures comprised of organic compounds that inhibit or eliminate common crop diseases, while at the same time stimulating and enhancing the same crops. This unique and proprietary process facilitates a targeted delivery of crop controls using the simple process of bee pollination to replace traditional crop spraying, resulting in better yield, organic product and less impact on the environment without the use of water or disruptions to labour.

In the future, your countertop could disinfect itself. Researchers at Rice University and City College of New York have come up with a way to embed silver nanoparticles in vegetable oil-based paint. Early tests show that the material exhibits "efficient antibacterial activity" toward E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Silver's antibacterial properties have been known since the age of the Roman Empire, but making nano-sized particles (nano particles measure less than 100 billionths of a meter long) and then fixing them in paints and coatings has typically been expensive and time consuming. The Rice and CCNY researchers devised a hydrocarbon soup that in turn helps form raw materials into nano-sized particles. "We extensively worked on polyunsaturated hydrocarbon chain-containing polymers to devise a novel approach to nanoparticle formation," said lead author George John, professor of chemistry at CCNY. Technically speaking, the process starts with a paints composed of alkyd resins, which contain a variety of polyunsaturated fatty acids. The resins get cured with exposure to the environment and form a scratch-free surface. Chemically active free radicals are also formed from the fatty acids during this process. The researchers essentially added metal salts during the drying process and found that the free radicals form nanoparticles out of the metal ions. "This means that the process is as simple as adding the metal salts to the oils and let the natural process occur, leading to a good dispersion of nanoparticles in the paints," wrote Pulickel Ajayan, Rice's Benjamin M. and Mary Greenwood Anderson Professor in Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, in an email. The researchers added that the elements in the paint are fairly green and should also last longer than other organic pigment paints. Killing microbes with green technology has become a growing business. Several companies such as Marrone Organic Innovations and AgraQuest have developed organic pesticides while CleanWell sells a organic hand cleaner. TyraTech, meanwhile, is working with Kraft on dairy foods that can kill internal pesticides.
