Award of GBP350k grant to investigate anti-viral properties of seaweed

Byotrol plc (AIM:BYOT), the specialist infection prevention and control company, is pleased to announce that it has secured a significant grant from Innovate UK to further investigate the anti-viral properties of certain common forms of seaweed.

The total award is GBP350k over 16 months, of which GBP108k will be paid to Byotrol's academic partner, the Molecular Virology Research Group at the University of Liverpool, led by Professor James Stewart. The grant is specifically for research into seaweeds in sanitising products, but we believe the resulting discoveries will have significance outside of Byotrol's core markets, including potentially animal feedstuffs.

This grant award will help Byotrol build further on its research and development programme into developing biocides from sustainable sources. This programme, which Byotrol has been exploring for many years has demonstrated high potency anti-viral action from extracts from commonly-occurring seaweeds, the results of which have already supported a new patent filing by the Group. Byotrol expects to file further patents as the programme develops.

Trevor Francis, Chief Technology Officer of Byotrol plc commented :

We are delighted that Innovate UK is supporting our research into the anti-viral properties of seaweeds and we are very pleased to be working on this project with Professor James Stewart's excellent team at the University of Liverpool. It is a very exciting area of development for Byotrol.
