Notes:

Eden's strategy is focused on the development and commercialisation of its terpene-based encapsulation
technology  for  agricultural  and  non-agricultural  uses  through  appropriate  regional  or  global
partnerships.

Terpenes  are  natural  compounds which function as defence mechanisms in many plant  groups  and  are
released in response to infection, attack by pests, stress or mechanical injury. Terpenes are  already
widely used in the food flavouring, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.

Historically,  terpenes  have  had  limited commercial use in the agrochemical  sector  due  to  their
volatility,  phytotoxicity and poor solubility. Eden's platform encapsulation technology provides  the
unique,  natural  solution to these problems and enables terpenes to be used  as  effective,  low-risk
agrochemicals.
