"Biocides" and "Pesticides"
Release date:2017-09-21 Author: Click:
The terms "biocides" and "pesticides" are regularly interchanged, and often confused with
"plant protection products". To clarify this, pesticides include both biocides and
plant protection products, where the former regards substances for non-food and feed
purposes and the latter regards substances for food and feed purposes.
When discussing biocides a distinction should be made between the biocidal active substance
and the biocidal product. The biocidal active substances are mostly chemical compounds,
but can also be microorganisms (e.g. bacteria). Biocidal products contain one or more biocidal
active substances and may contain other non-active co-formulants that ensure the effectiveness
as well as the desired pH, viscosity, colour, odour, etc. of the final product.
Biocidal products are available on the market for use by professional and/or non-professional consumers.
