A preference is given to technologies that are from sustainable sources and natural materials.


  • Water soluble
  • Surfactant compatible
  • pH compatible
  • Broad spectrum activity across all groups of micro-organisms, bacteria, mould, fungi and virus
  • No animal testing beyond 2010
  • Chemicals that we should avoid: Formaldehyde donor, Isothiazolinone chemistries, IPBC, parabens
  • Must be effective against Gram Negative bacteria & Non- Fermenters – Pseudomonas aeruginosa ; Burkholderia cepacia, Enterobacter gergoviae ; Klebsiella pneumoniae; aureus, E. coli and C. albicans
    • Ideally effective against Aspergillus brasilensis


Possible Solution Areas

  • Novel antimicrobials
  • Anti-spoilage food additives
  • Packaging technologies
  • All ranges of development stage welcome, from academia to launched products.


Desired Outcome of the Solution

Discovery of a compatible preservation technology to extend shelf-life of consumer goods.
