Genera Science and Innovation Limited

Innovation is Our Path to the Future

Formed in 2015 Genera Science and Innovation is a vibrant, thriving independent company employing a team of ten scientists, engineers, technicians and other specialists who provide high caliber science, independent environmental monitoring, and build and commissioning of world-leading fumigant application and gas recovery technology. At Genera Science and Technology we have a research laboratory set up with two Gas Liquid Chromatographs and our own engineering and manufacturing workshop.

Genera has a solid history of innovation, Kiwi businesses have a reputation for innovation, and Genera is proud of the contribution we make to support that reputation.

Existing techniques may be good enough to get the job done. However, we hold dearly to the idea that investment in finding a better way is worthwhile. Genera continues to strive for better ways of doing things. Our team of environmental research scientists and technical staff are part of our quest for better solutions. Our efforts were recognised in June 2018 when Genera was awarded the ExportNZ Bay of Plenty Export in Innovation Award.

We have a team of research scientists driving research and developing new techniques and processes to reduce emissions of fumigant gases and to find more effective biosecurity treatments. Their research is backed up by our capable environmental monitoring and fumigant recapture technicians.

Research Lab Capabilities

Our research lab capabilities include workshops where scrubbers from bench to commercial scale are designed and built. Additionally, Genera owns a portable analytical laboratory where trials and quantitative analysis can be undertaken safely and precisely, as well as a compact portable laboratory where Gas Liquid Chromatograph (GLC) can be quickly deployed for accurate and instantaneous real-time field analysis.

Development of gas-liquid fumigant scrubbing is a major research focus for Genera. The gas-liquid scrubbers we have developed for recapturing alkyl halide fumigants represent world leading technology. The optimisation of wet scrubber efficiency a high priority for Genera researchers.

Genera is also trialling and optimising other world-leading fumigant management technology. Our leadership in this area is receiving international recognition.
