Aqdot™ is a specialist chemical company which operates in the rapidly growing encapsulation market, currently valued at £4 billion.

Its proprietary technologies encapsulate and protect valuable active products (cargoes) in a variety of settings and allow them to be delivered when and where the customer requires.

To date the challenge for encapsulated products has been in triggering encapsulation systems to release their cargo at the time that the customer needs them. It is this unique proprietary capability that Aqdot’s technology delivers, based on a disruptive platform originally discovered at and spun out of the University of Cambridge.

Aqdot’s technology has the potential to be game-changing in a wide range of industries, including household products such as detergents, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, agrochemicals, cosmetics, food, paint, fragrances and personal products. By identifying unmet needs in these sectors, Aqdot is seeking to develop products that enable manufacturers to introduce novel and differentiated brands, reduce manufacturing costs and make a truly positive impact on the environment.
