Algaenergy, founded in 2007, is an innovative technology based company working in the microalgae biotechnology sector. It has been promoted and is managed by a group of entrepreneurs and scientists with solid financial backing and extensive experience.
The company is backed by Iberdrola, world leader in renewable energy, as shareholder and technology partner since 2009.
With substantial R&D programmes, Algaenergy is linked to some of the most recognised international microalgae research centres and universities. Algaenergy's mission also includes the exploitation of the enormous talent and ability available in Spain within this area of science and expertise.
Algaenergy is already selling products derived from microalgae in different sectors, including aquaculture, functional nutrition, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, animal feed, agriculture and novel materials, amongst others. It also offers technology services and the construction of turnkey plants for the production of microalgae.
The company's ultimate goal is the production of 3rd generation biofuels from certain microalgae and cyanobacteria in a commercially viable way, promising alternative as its production may use waste water, brackish or marine, does not compete with agricultural land, production is high and sustainable and its main nutrient is CO2 thus contributing to improving the environment.
