Hi Kate! 

That is the correct link for our website. Thanks for checking us out! We are based in Charlottesville, VA and our company was found at the University of Virginia.

For our first pesticide degrading product, we are currently working with the Office of Food Additive Safety at the FDA in order to gain regulatory approval as a Food Contact Substance. This means we must also meet the FDA's environmental requirements under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). We will have to prove the safety of our bioparticle, the enzyme we are using, and that the  breakdown products of the pesticide are the same as when the pesticide naturally degrades on its own.

Let us know if you have any more questions!
