AMOEBA is continuing with its regulatory procedures so as to launch the request for provisional MA in the first half of 2016 for all European countries, as soon as ANSES (French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety) has validated AMOEBA’s solution for the “Air Cooled Towers” application. In a worldwide market for chemical biocides, estimated to be worth EUR 21 bn, AMOEBA is today concentrating on the segment of industrial air-cooled towers (ACT) estimated to be worth EUR 1.7 bn.
