Our Technology

Innovative micro-encapsulation

greEnCAP’s microencapsulation technology packages essential oils in a polymer carrier matrix. Encapsulation ensures a continuous release of bioactive essential oils while protecting them against volatility and instability. Chitosan, the polymer matrix, acts as a wall material protecting the inner essential oil and contributes to the bioactivity of the product via its own antimicrobial, plant-strengthening, and growth-promoting properties. With a technology that combines the goodness of nature, greEnCAP provides you with natural and safe plant protection solutions.

Essential Oils

Essential oils are volatile liquids extracted from various parts of a scented plant such as bark, seeds, flowers, roots, etc. or from the entire plant. They are named after the plant from which they are extracted, like chamomile oil or mint oil. The general interest in essential oils is explained by their broad spectrum of biological activities. There are more than 90 different kinds with massive application potential.


It is estimated that 6-8 million tons of shrimp, crab and lobster waste are produced annually in the fishing industry, which is the main source of Chitin from which Chitosan is derived. Chitosans are binary co-polymers consisting of N-acetylglucosamine units and glucosamine units linked by glycosidic bonds. The biological activities of chitosans are directly dependent on their characteristic properties.
