Smart microcapsules

Climate-KIC Start-Up

Founding Year: 2012

Location: UK

AQDOT provides intelligent encapsulation solutions for the household, personal care and agrochemical industries. AQDOT has developed a novel fabrication technology for smart microcapsules that possess customizable properties to suit the needs of a variety of industries.

It greatly simplifies the microencapsulation process by utilising the novel one-step, ‘shrink wrap’ approach. This cutting edge platform provides a one-pot, single-step process which rapidly produces microcapsules in minutes rather than days and can meet the currently vacant consumer demand for the production of inexpensive capsules that allow for the triggered release of cargo.
